Self-care is a necessary component of effective addiction recovery. Embracing new strategies that empower each person to focus on their physical and mental health, manage their energy, and create a balanced lifestyle can be truly transformative changes. However, aftercare is just as important as it helps individuals recuperate from stressful events and focus on their sobriety, even following intense challenges. While aftercare and self-care are interconnected, they are still distinct. Distinguishing between self-care and aftercare can help individuals in recovery foster a balance for the most effective addiction recovery efforts.
