One of the things that people trying to recover from addiction in Grimsby need to be aware of is that they are likely to have to deal with an emotional rollercoaster. What this means is that during the early months of recovery they may experience intense mood swings. If the individual is not prepared for these they can be quite disturbing. It could give the individual an excuse to return to alcohol or drug abuse. It is therefore vital that people from Grimsby are prepared for the emotional rollercoaster of early sobriety. One of the best places for such preparation to occur would be inside drug or alcoholic treatment centres.

The Emotional Rollercoaster Explained

The emotional rollercoaster refers to mood swings that people can experience as part of their drug or alcohol recovery. The person may be feeling on top of the world one minute and right down in the dumps the next. It is the intensity of the emotions that tends to really put people in a vulnerable position. The individual may even feel like their emotions are out of control. There are a number of reasons for why people experience the emotional rollercoaster in early recovery including:

  • The fact that the person has been locked in substance abuse means that they have been numbing their emotions. This means there can be a rebound effect as the emotions thaw out again.
  • The individual will not be used to feeling their emotions so they can feel fairly intense.
  • The early weeks and months of recovery involved having to pass through withdrawals. Some people will experience post acute withdrawals and these can last up to a year and impact emotions.
  • The trials and tribulations of early recovery can deeply impact the person’s emotional state. They will be trying to clean up the wreckage of their past so they can start afresh.
