Sleeping Habits Influence Recovery
One of the most difficult things to get through during detoxification, rehabilitation, and recovery from addiction is sleep. Difficulty sleeping can result from mental or physical lapses due to the effects of the addiction. Poor or unhealthy sleeping habits can lead to unhealthy habits and consequently an unhealthy life—and for recovering addicts, the chance to reform sleep habits can go a long way in the recovery process. Many rehabilitation centers today don’t focus on unique aspects of recovery like sleep. It often goes overlooked, but not at Seabrook House. The addiction recovery programs at Seabrook House are designed to fit the unique needs of each patient as an individual. Some people sleep differently than others and some people respond differently to sleeping techniques and practices. One of the stepping stones towards a new healthy lifestyle begins once healthy sleep hygiene is established.
For recovering addicts, sleep difficulties are a common withdrawal symptom. The sleep hygiene group reviews the principles and practices of a healthy sleep hygiene protocol that does not involve any pharmacological sleep aids. Unhealthy sleep habits including lack of sleep, abusing/depending on sleep aids, and even too much sleep can all be attributed to a lifestyle that has resulted from a bad routine or addiction. Patients at Seabrook House are individually analyzed and new sleep hygiene programs are built for them based on their personal medical history and sleep habits.
A new sleep hygiene program is just one of many complimentary and wellness therapies offered at Seabrook House. Our therapies are all aimed at a holistic recovery—meaning a transformation of both the body and mind in the recovery process from addiction.
