New Year’s Sobriety

For many the start of the New Year is the pinnacle of change, but the most discouraging is when the same New Year’s resolution find’s itself on the top of the list: Stop Drinking. As the New Year rolls in so does the interest of families in our recovery program at Sierra by the Sea. A common question families have while looking at the extensive programs and costs of rehabilitation programs have is, “Why can’t they just stop drinking?” I would say that asking an addict to stop drinking is like asking a healthy person to stop breathing. The act of stopping will send them spinning and feel as if their dying. This is why programs like Sierra by the Sea exist. We help introduce those with addictions to a new way of breathing through life.

We know addictions bring with them an abundance of frustrations. Please continue searching for the rehab that best suits your loved one.

Recovery is fueled by hope and courage and an exploration of the underlying factors such as trauma. Our treatment driven by compassionate and trauma-informed care provides the foundation of recovery and healing.
