We as addiction treatment experts understand that the addiction recovery process is not an easy one. It takes lots of effort and a strong will to reach your destination of sobriety. Therefore, we believe that if you are planning to seek addiction treatment, you should have some goals set which can act as a motivation.
In this blog, we will talk about goals and how you can set some for yourself.
How can you Set Goals for yourself?
Goals are the motivation that can help you achieve your sobriety. They are:
You can come up with long-term and short-term goals. Short-term goals can be achieved within a short period, probably when you are at the rehab center itself. However, long-term goals take time to be accomplished. They need proper drafting and specification.
You can follow this process to set up a few goals for yourself:
- Come up with effective statements
- Break down your goals into small manageable steps
- Review and re-evaluate your progress
Further, you can also use a simple method to set up your treatment goals. All you need to do is remember the name “S.M.A.R.T goals”. This can help you greatly while you form your goal statements.
The acronym stands for:
A- action oriented
T- time bound
Just make sure that the goal statements you form contain all the five elements of the S.M.A.R.T goal.
