  1. Seek therapy: Therapy can be a powerful tool for improving mental health. A licensed therapist can help you work through any underlying issues that may have contributed to your substance abuse and provide support and guidance as you navigate the recovery process.

  3. Connect with others: Social support is an important factor in mental health. Surround yourself with supportive friends and family, and consider joining a support group for people in recovery.
  4. Find healthy ways to cope with stress: Stress is a normal part of life, but it’s important to find healthy ways to cope with it. This can include activities like exercise, meditation, or talking to a therapist.
  5. Seek support if you’re struggling: If you’re struggling with your mental health or feeling overwhelmed, it’s important to seek support. This can be from a therapist, a support group, or a trusted friend or family member.

Maintaining good mental health is an important part of the recovery process. By following these tips, you can support your mental well-being and build a strong foundation for lasting sobriety. Remember, it’s never too late to start taking care of your mental health.
