    Addicted to Chaos: When Life in Sobriety Seems Boring 

    People that enter drug treatment do so with a tremendous amount of baggage. Drug and alcohol addiction has thrown their lives into total disarray, and through the treatment services and expert care provided at a drug rehab facility they can begin to piece their lives back together. When those new in recovery leave treatment and transition back home, they have the tools  they need to restore calm, structure and order in their lives. While newly recovering individuals feel a strong sense of empowerment and excitement in building a new life in recovery, danger can lurk beneath the surface. For those who are newly sober, they will encounter many obstacles in their recovery journey­­ and many of them are mental in nature. Perhaps the most common mental obstacle is the perception that recovery is boring . There is no doubt that recovery brings stability, but for some newly recovering addicts, they may not know how to handle the newfound peace that comes with stability. Despite all the good that is happening in their lives, they will seek out drama at every turn. In these cases, it can be said they have replaced an addiction to drugs and alcohol with an addiction to chaos. What Does It Mean To Be Addicted to Chaos? An addiction to substances is often seen as being the tip of the proverbial iceberg in regards to the deeper issues an addict has experienced in their life. For many, they come from a background where there is great dysfunction. Whether it is personal trauma, family issues and history with addiction, or mental illness, many who experience this type of environment can come to view it as a normal part of everyday life­­and they will resort to substance use in order to help “make sense of things”. When the addict undergoes drug treatment and starts to get sober, a couple of things can occur. First, the addict experiences anxiety in regards to the scope of the deeper underlying issues that lie at the root of their addiction. Secondly, they may gravitate towards any drama that may be occurring in their lives as a coping mechanism to deal with that anxiety. If underlying issues go unresolved during treatment and carry over into their recovery outside of rehab, those new in sobriety will continue to seek out chaos­­and in many ways can be addicted to chaos. The concept of chaos addiction  may be more difficult to grasp due to its abstract nature, but the addictive patterns it demonstrates in a person’s behavior can have similarities to more commonly­known addictive behavior. Because of these similarities, people who are in recovery can take steps to minimize the phenomenon of chaos in addiction. Tips to Managing An Addiction to Chaos Seek Professional Mental Health Help For those who may be showing the signs of chaos addiction in their recovery, the first thing that must be done is to seek the help of an experienced mental health provider. These professionals can perform comprehensive evaluations in order to identify any underlying disorders that may have gone undiagnosed. With a proper diagnosis, the appropriate mental health interventions can be implemented along with any complimentary substance abuse interventions. Engage in Mindful Meditation Practices Learning mindful meditation techniques  have long been a staple of life and coping skills education at many drug rehab centers. Easy to master, meditation allows people dealing with anxiety and stress to focus their thinking in the present moment. When someone engages in meditative practices, it invokes a parasympathetic response from the body which lowers heart rate, blood pressure and it decreases the production of stress hormones in the body. Learning to Identify Relationships, Environment and Circumstances That Promote Chaos People in recovery who find themselves becoming addicted to chaos need to have the same mindset they adopted during treatment, which is to avoid the people, places and things that cause chaos in their lives. There needs to be a clear identification of what causes dysfunction in one’s daily life. While it may not be possible to avoid these situations, those who are in recovery from substance abuse need to find healthy and proactive ways to deal with the stress and anxiety that accompany chaos. Learning to Set Boundaries A common thread for those who are addicted to chaos is the fact they were raised in a home environment in which personal boundaries were not respected. To minimize chaos in recovery, those who are newly recovering need to learn ways to set limits where others are not able to overstep their bounds. For example, if someone is speaking to a person who is highly negative of themselves or others, they must learn to redirect the conversation to a more positive place or leave that conversation altogether. Chaotic Behavior Needs to Be Seen as Relapse Behavior There are many in recovery­­especially early in recovery­­ who view a relapse has a sudden event. In reality, relapse is the result of a myriad of behaviors that occur for a significant period before the actual relapse event. For those in recovery who allow chaos to control their life, they need to immediately recognize that the anxiety and stress they are feeling are telltale signs that a return to active substance use may be near. With that recognition, they can take the necessary steps to get stable.

Every patient is unique. Every patient has different needs. Some patients have insurance that will help pay the costs to enter a rehab center and some don’t. Some patients can afford to pay up front for their out of pocket expenses (the portion that insurance does not pay) and some patients need financial help. Because your financial position should not be the primary factor that determines whether or not you or your loved one gets help, our nationwide rehab centers have treatment options and financing options that will fit the needs of most people. It is important to understand your treatment choices and financing options.

Treatment Choices Are Available At All Rehab Centers

The Traditional Residential Treatment Choice

This treatment option is available at all Valley Hope residential rehab centers when a 30-day residential treatment experience is desired. Typically when a patient completes this treatment option the patient will go directly into continuing care. Continuing care will provide support for up to a year following discharge from primary residential care.

The Step-Down Treatment Choice

This treatment option is available at all Valley Hope residential rehab centers. Patients receive treatment in a residential setting for a variable length of time (days two weeks), but when they are ready for less intensive treatment, they transition to an outpatient level of care. This allows patients to get back to their daily lives as soon as possible. In order to help with this goal, you or your loved one, as a patient, will work with your counselor to identify the progress needed to move from residential to outpatient care. This basically means you or your loved one will be stabilized in residential care and then complete treatment in an outpatient setting. Continuing care will provide support for up to a year following discharge from step down treatment.

Many patients needing financial assistance to access treatment elect the step-down model of care, as the overall cost is often less.

The Outpatient Treatment Choice

This treatment option is available for patients who need a less structured treatment setting that allows them to continue with their daily life. Patients normally attend group sessions in the mornings or evenings. Typically when a patient completes this treatment option the patient will go directly into continuing care. Continuing care will provide support for up to a year following discharge from primary outpatient care. Outpatient treatment at our Valley Hope rehab centers is available both on-grounds and online.

How You Pay for Treatment will Affect Your Treatment Choices

Your treatment choices are affected by the way in which your addiction treatment costs are paid. The following paragraphs will explain how financial factors affect treatment choices.

If You Have Health Insurance and Plan to Use It

Your health insurance policy will guide this process. While many health insurance policies include chemical dependency treatment benefits, these policies also often include medical necessity requirements that the patient must meet in order to use these benefits. Valley Hope rehab centers have years of experience helping patients work with their insurance companies. However, there is no guarantee that your insurance company will authorize payment. When you use your insurance benefits to help pay for treatment you can usually expect that treatment will follow the step-down treatment model.

Self-Pay Options

If you are a patient electing to pay out-of-pocket for your addiction treatment costs, then you can choose traditional residential treatment which includes a 30-day length of stay or you can work with your counselor to individualize your length of stay based on your immediate clinical needs. In this latter case, the course of treatment would likely be stabilization in a residential care facility and completion of primary care in an outpatient setting. For self pay patients, all Valley Hope rehab centers offer both of these models.

Traditional Care Program

Many of our patients choose a conventional course of treatment that we call “Traditional Care.” To admit to our Traditional Care program the patient must be willing to commit to 30 days of residential treatment without the use of health insurance. The cost for this program is substantially discounted and includes all addiction treatment costs except non-routine ancillary charges (i.e. medications, doctor visits, non-routine lab work, etc.). Completion of this program at one of our Valley Hope residential rehab centers provides the patient with the opportunity to purchase a full year of continuing care at a substantially discounted rate.

Recovery Commitment Program

This fee discount program is for patients who choose outpatient treatment and are willing to commit to six weeks of intensive (IOP) treatment without the use of health insurance. The addiction treatment cost of this program is substantially discounted and includes three 3-hour group sessions per week and up to 6 hours of individual counseling. Completion of this program provides the patient with the opportunity to purchase a full year of continuing care at a substantially discounted rate. The Recovery Commitment Program is available both on-ground at all Valley Hope outpatient rehab centers and online.

Self-Pay Financing Program

Patients who are unable to take advantage of the Traditional Care or Recovery Commitment programs may choose to participate in our self-pay program. The self-pay program usually involves some initial payment to get started. Then, if you qualify, the remaining balance due on the account can be set up on a monthly payment plan. This payment plan will include an interest charge (similar to a credit card plan). The interest amount will depend on how quickly you can pay back the financed amount, in addition to other factors. The Valley Hope rehab centers will work with you to individually tailor your financing plan to your particular financial situation. Our first concern, however, is always about your well being.

Continuing Care

Chemical dependency is a chronic disease and people are not “cured” when they complete primary care. Research shows that patients who stay connected to primary and continuing care treatment for a year or longer have stronger recovery programs and are less prone to relapse. All Valley Hope rehab centers offer continuing care at a considerable discount to those patients who complete primary care at Valley Hope.
