This Substance use Disorder Group focuses o the identification of the SUD and recovery process used to overcome the SUD problem.
“Make different choices.” If you want different experiences, make different choices. If you want better experiences, make better choices. We make better choices by practicing decision making. If you want to get better at driving, singing or anything else, you have to proactive. Decision making is no different. Our results are determined by the choices we make.
Make decisions that benefit you in the long-term instead of the short-term. When you are making a decision, ask yourself these questions:
- Does this benefit me in the short-term or long-term?
- Will I be more satisfied with the short-term consequences of my actions or the long-term consequences?
Substance use is usually a short term decision. I don’t know anyone that plans to be an addict for 20 years.
Our decisions have ripple effects. As small as some decisions may seem, after time they can compound into a positive or a negative result.
