The Importance of Unplugging

Posted on July 19th, 2012

Promises Austin encourages guests to unplug their phones in order to focus on their recovery.

When dealing with a drug addiction recovery, it’s important for patients to be 100% focused and committed to recovery. To begin a successful journey to a new life, one must first detach from the outside world. For the first seven days of treatment at Promises Austin, a holistic drug rehab and alcohol rehab, patients are freed from all outside influences and technology distractions to help quiet their minds and begin the road to recovery.

When patients detach from electronic devices such as mobile phones and emails that connect to the outside world, they are able to focus completely on the recovery and not on their drug addiction. These outside contacts have the potential to hinder any recovery phase. Instead, patients are encouraged to meet others in sobriety and begin networking with sober peers who have been able to maintain sobriety over several years. The new connections are a valuable experience to help guide, inspire and lead patients to stay dedicated to their recovery at a long term holistic rehab.

Benefits include getting in touch with your true identity and relieving your whole self of the stress that can often accompany technology. This also allows for time to clear your head and have a conversation with only yourself as the speaker. As you unplug from the outside world, you begin to replug into yourself and those around you going through similar experiences.

This mandatory “unplugged” phase will facilitate your transition into Promises Austin’s therapeutic environment and foster a healthy mindset that becomes open to a holistic rehab journey to recovery.

The benefits clients take with them from Promises Austin luxury rehab center will stay with them throughout their lifetimes. Remember that helping someone overcome drug addiction is a gift born of compassion. For more information on admission to the Promises Austin.
