Confronting addiction is never easy. When you have been ordered by a judge to take a substance abuse course, it is easy to dismiss it. You may think that if you did have a problem, you would be facing jail time. This is not the case. The judge has given you a chance to turn your life around before it is too late. When you are given an opportunity like this, you need to make the most of it.
Admitting You Have a Problem is the First Step
You won’t get anything out of a substance abuse course if you cannot acknowledge that you have an issue with substance abuse. Take some time to self-examine. Withhold judgment – just focus on the facts. Once you can admit that you have a problem, you can accept help.
Pay Attention
Once you begin your course, give it your full attention. Absorb and retain all of the information the course gives you so that you can apply it to your life. It is imperative that you don’t forget everything you learned in your course.
Focus on the Future
As you work through your substance abuse course, take the time to think about how you will apply the information you are learning to your life in the future. Plan out how you want your life to go from this point. When you have hit rock bottom, the only way to go is up.
