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.

Valley Hope’s outpatient addiction treatment facility in Overland Park offers the greater metropolitan area a full range of comprehensive outpatient services during daytime and evening hours.

Overland Park Valley Hope offers traditional Intensive Outpatient (IOP), AC/ESS telehealth/online services, individual, family, and group counseling,  continuing care, education, and assessment/evaluation services. Office hours are 8 am-10 pm Monday through Friday.

Traditional IOP group sessions are held on Monday, Wednesday and Friday from either 8:30- 11:30 am or 6-9 pm. Traditional IOP group sessions occur at the Overland Park facility.

For those individuals who cannot or prefer not to attend a traditional IOP group, another option is AC/ESS teleheath IOP. AC/ESS IOP is a ten hour per week online program with counselor facilitated process groups daily and individualized education with one-on-one feedback. The group rooms are open 24 hours per day, seven days per week. Valley Hope provides support to family members of those participating in either of these forms of treatment. Family Addiction Treatment Services We also offer an AC/ESS Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) specifically for family members who have been affected by the family disease of addiction. Participants in Family IOP do not have to have a loved one in any of our facilities. This program is nine hours per week for three weeks and includes a weekly individual session conducted via phone or in person.

One hour Continuing Care group sessions for those who have recently completed Residential or Intensive Outpatient treatment are held Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday at nine different times to fit a variety of schedules. Our AC/ESS telehealth option offers four online Continuing Care groups that allow for counselor facilitated groups Monday through Friday and rooms that are open 24 hours per day, 7 days per week.

Physician services are available to those enrolled in our addiction treatment programs; they are provided by a physician who is also a certified addictionologist. Medication to assist in treatment is available, including Suboxone, which has been shown to be effective for those in addiction treatment for an addiction to opiates, including heroin or prescription pain pills. In addition, Naltrexone or Vivitrol can be provided when indicated to increase the capability for success in recovery from alcoholism or drug addiction.

Overland Park Valley Hope’s comfortable environment features a group room and a coffee shop for patients and alumni. Our knowledgeable and friendly staff is available to answer questions for you or your loved one during office hours.
