We often get bogged down with small details. We might focus more on how we will get to where we are going rather than focusing on our destination. When starting recovery and deciding to enter treatment, we might have many questions about the finer details. We might have preconceived notions about recovery that can prevent us from moving forward. Sometimes, we might need to get away from all the details and get out of our heads. We just need to find the right direction.

The details of how we will recover can make us feel overwhelmed. We might be looking at the work or the challenging steps that we might need to take. We might wonder if we can get through all of these therapies and treatment approaches. While being informed about our treatment options can help us make informed decisions, we need to remember where we are going. What is the right direction for you? What are you looking for in recovery? 

When we get so focused on the details of how we will get there, we might lose our motivation. We might think, “all these treatments are overwhelming, and this will take a lot of time!” We have to remember where we are going and who we want to become. The details are part of the process, but not the end result. Recovery is a challenge, and we are all in this together. When we find our direction, the details will take care of themselves.

Beginning treatment may be overwhelming for some of us. We might start to feel confused about our treatment options or have notions about specific modalities that make us question whether recovery is right for us. We cannot always allow ourselves to get stuck on the details. While having information about our options and modalities can help us find treatment, we also need to remember our long-term goals. What are we trying to accomplish through treatment and recovery? When we decide on a direction in recovery, we decide that we want a healthy and happy lifestyle. We are choosing our direction. The details of how we will get there will work themselves out and be a part of the process.
