5 Tips for Avoiding Alcohol Labor Day Weekend

How to Avoid Temptations To Drink Over the Holiday Weekend

Labor Day marks the unofficial end of the summer. Therefore, it’s prime time for people to take advantage of drinking alcoholic beverages or going to a social event where there could be drug or alcohol use. However, it is possible for you to have a sober Labor Day and to remain safe and sober during this celebratory weekend. One of the best tips to avoid substance abuse is to make a body and mind commitment to staying sober and surrounding yourself with a sober friend or family member which will help you to stay focused on your recovery.

5 Tips For Staying Sober on Labor Day

There are several steps that you can take when it comes to staying sober on Labor Day. Here are a few examples of people in recovery do to stay sober on Labor Day: 

  • Go to sober parties where you know the people attending these parties won’t be drinking alcohol or using drugs 
  • Opt to stay home and enjoy a weekend on your own 
  • Make plans to attend recovery meetings in the area 
  • Get in touch with your treatment center and see if they have an aftercare program or an alumni program that you can participate in 
  • Be sure to plan ahead so that you don’t fall into a bad situation 

What to Do if You Relapse

If you do experience a relapse, it’s critical that you get in touch with other people in recovery including an addiction treatment center who can help you to regain your sobriety. Although it may be overwhelming or embarrassing, it’s important that you disclose the full extent of your relapse so that your treatment team can help you to get the treatment and access to addiction resources that you need. 

Help for Alcohol Abuse and Addiction at Resurgence Behavioral Health

At Resurgence Behavioral Health, we pride ourselves on helping people in recovery. We offer different addiction treatment options which will help you to navigate your recovery journey. Depending on the level of your drug addiction or alcohol addiction, there is a strong possibility that you will need to begin your treatment journey in a drug or alcohol detox program. Drug and alcohol detox will provide you with the around-the-clock care that you need during the time that you’re experiencing withdrawal symptoms. 

Following detox, you will have the opportunity to take advantage of an inpatient treatment program or an outpatient treatment plan. An inpatient treatment program is a suitable option for an individual who may need a sober and safe environment in order to really work through their issues with addiction. Not only will you have the around-the-clock care and support from our treatment team, but you will also be able to interact with other people who are working through their own recovery programs which allows you to develop your own system of support. 

An outpatient treatment program, on the other hand, is a suitable option for a person who may need to work or go to school full-time or even part-time. This flexible treatment option helps you to get the care that you need to address your addiction without feeling as though you need to forego other important responsibilities in your life. 

If you need help in working through your alcohol addiction, we encourage you to get in touch with our intake team today. We are available around the clock to provide you with the help and care that you need to navigate your addiction and help you to maintain your sobriety.
