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.

Recovering from substance use disorders is a challenging journey that feels more doable in an environment that tends to each individual’s complex needs and strengths. Our goal is to foster a treatment experience that is built on compassion, hope, and caring, and fueled by excellence in the provision of evidence-based and trauma-informed care.
