The article, Tips for surviving the holidays while in substance abuse recovery, by SIGNORINI states.

“The holiday season can be stressful for individuals and families recovering from substance abuse or those affected by mental health disorders, according to state officials.

“Strained relationships and triggering environments like celebrations with drinking or drug use can put people in situations with the potential for a relapse, and spending more time with family may bring a loved one’s unknown struggles into light,” Jennifer Smith, acting secretary of the state department of Drug and Alcohol Programs, said in a news release.

State officials encouraged those who experience extra anxiety or depression to take care of themselves during the holiday season.

A few tips:

• Have a normal routine.

• Spend time with supportive, caring people.

• Get rest and exercise.

Planning ahead can help those recovering from an addiction to minimize stress during the holiday season while facing situations that could trigger substance abuse, Smith said.”
