We Do Recover

Motivation refers to the desire and aspirations of an individual when doing a task. It refers to the inner drive and desire to change your addictive behavior and work towards a healthier, more fulfilling life.

The addiction recovery community recognizes that everyone’s motivation to change is unique. Some individuals may experience a moment of clarity that sparks their motivation, while others may gradually develop it over time. There is no one-size-fits-all approach when it comes to motivation, as each person’s journey is different.

Motivation can come from various sources, such as the desire to regain control over your life, repair damaged relationships, improve your physical and mental well-being, or pursue personal goals that addiction may have hindered. It provides the fuel you need to push through difficult moments and stay committed to the recovery process.

Many treatment programs employ motivational enhancement techniques to help individuals increase their motivation levels. These techniques focus on enhancing self-belief, building self-esteem, setting achievable goals, and reinforcing positive behaviors. By boosting your motivation, these strategies aim to strengthen your commitment to a sober and healthier lifestyle.

It is key to remember that motivation is not a constant state. It may fluctuate throughout your recovery process. Some days you may feel highly motivated and driven to make positive changes, while on other days, motivation may be harder to find. This is completely normal and something that many individuals in recovery experience.

The addiction recovery community has increasingly recognized the importance of instilling sustainable motivation in individuals seeking treatment. Rather than relying solely on external factors or short-term motivation, the focus has shifted towards nurturing intrinsic motivation – the motivation that comes from within yourself. Intrinsic motivation is seen as more long-lasting and powerful, as it is rooted in your personal values and desires.
