Getting Back to Work After Rehab


Of the over 22 million illicit drug users in the country, 68.9% are employed part-time or full-time. As opioid and alcohol epidemics worsen nationwide, there are more and more employees needing addiction treatment in Stuart.

At Banyan Detox Stuart, we support the full continuum of rehab care. We understand that after completing our recovery programs, patients may have a difficult time readjusting to everyday working life with their newfound sobriety. There are steps which can be taken to ease the transition back to normal working life following completion of rehab programs.

Be Honest with Everyone

Denying your addiction and your recovery will dishonor all the hard work you’ve done to get sober. Make sure to be honest with yourself, and with others, about your addiction treatment in Stuart. Don’t lie about your journey after completing treatment and returning to work. You don’t have to give all the personal details, but you don’t need to lie about your recovery. Your honesty may even inspire others to work towards their own sobriety.

Have a Plan for Facing Stress

Work can be stressful enough as it is, and jumping back into things after you’ve completed treatment can add an extra level of stress. Make sure to have a plan for how you’ll cope with stress. This can include breathing exercises, meditation, and support systems. Controlling your responses to stress won’t just solidify your sobriety, it will help improve your workplace performance.

Get Support from Trusted People

Support can go a long way in the trajectory of your recovery. After completing addiction treatment in Stuart, make sure to build a support system at home as well. This includes a sponsor, an alumni from your recovery program, AA, and NA. Count on your support system as you transition back into everyday life, with your newfound sobriety.


We hope that these tips make it easier to transition back into everyday working life following completion of drug and alcohol treatment. For further tips, support, and treatment, contact our Stuart Florida treatment center at 888-280-4763.
