Emotional Regulation in Addiction Recovery
Emotional self-regulation helps you control cravings and urges that lead to addiction. When people with addiction learn helpful regulation strategies, they can improve their recovery and decrease the chances of relapse by addressing the underlying causes of addiction.
People often use drugs or alcohol to change their feelings, increasing pleasurable sensations and reducing negative ones. Unfortunately, substances enhance the problem by temporarily dampening emotions. For those seeking long-lasting recovery, learning self-regulation skills provides an enduring solution.
