For many, festive celebrations are moments of joy, laughter, and togetherness. Yet, for those in the road of recovery, these joyous occasions can present a unique set of challenges. “How can I enjoy this without a drink?” “Will I be the odd one out?” Such thoughts can cloud the essence of the festivity. At Arision Treatment, we understand these dilemmas. Through a commitment to holistic recovery, we aim to arm our patients with the skills and confidence to fully relish these moments, sober and joyful.

The Pull of Old Habits

Located in the scenic embrace of Woodland Hills, the Arision Treatment is more than just a drug and alcohol rehab center. It’s a sanctuary where sustainable mental health and lasting recovery take center stage. Our dedicated team of professionals tirelessly work towards a singular goal – empowering our patients to rise above their triggers, especially during occasions filled with temptations.


The essence of Arision Treatment lies in our comprehensive approach. Upon arrival, every individual undergoes a thorough evaluation. This isn’t merely about ticking boxes on a checklist. It delves deep into the physical, emotional, and mental facets, setting the foundation for a personalized, strategic treatment plan.

Understanding the Triggers in Celebratory Settings

Celebrations, often synonymous with excess, can be packed with triggers. The clinking glasses, the celebratory toasts, the pressures to “just have one” – each can push one towards old habits. But understanding these triggers is half the battle. The alumni of Arision Treatment frequently share their firsthand experiences, shedding light on the pressures of such settings and, more importantly, how they maneuvered through them armed with insights they gained at Arision.

Recognizing the Importance of Triggers

Like we mentioned before, in the world of addiction recovery, understanding and recognizing triggers is paramount. A trigger can be anything – a scent, a place, a song, or even a specific event like a celebration. These seemingly innocuous things can evoke powerful memories and emotions tied to past substance use. At Arision Treatment, we dedicate a significant portion of our program to helping individuals recognize these triggers. Why? Because knowledge truly is power. When you can anticipate and recognize a potential trigger, you’re one step ahead in your battle against relapse.

Avoiding Triggers in a Celebratory Setting

Navigating sober can feel like treading a tightrope. At Arision Treatment, we equip our patients with practical strategies. Whether it’s choosing who to spend time with during an event, selecting environments that are less triggering, or even practicing mindfulness techniques to remain grounded, we believe in equipping individuals to not just recognize, but also tactfully avoid and manage these triggers. This proactive approach ensures that they can be present in the moment, truly savoring the joy of the occasion without the looming threat of old habits.

Arision Treatment’s Tips for Sober Celebrations

The key to a joyous, sober celebration lies in preparation. At Arision Treatment, we emphasize the importance of mental and emotional readiness. Visualize the event, anticipate the challenges, and equip yourself with strategies. Always have an exit plan; if the situation becomes too overwhelming, it’s okay to step out. Remember, protecting your sobriety is paramount.

Finding a sober companion can be a game-changer. This is someone who understands your journey, offers support during the event, and serves as a reminder of your commitment to sobriety. Their mere presence can be the buffer you need against potential triggers.

Alcohol Rehab & Dual Diagnosis – A Deeper Dive

Arision Treatment isn’t just another rehab. Our services, particularly the Intensive Outpatient (IOP) and Partial Hospitalization Programs (PHP), are tailored to equip individuals with the tools they need to navigate real-world scenarios post-rehab. The emphasis on dual diagnosis stands testament to our belief that addiction often has underlying mental health issues that need simultaneous addressing.

Our luxury setting in California isn’t just about aesthetics. It’s about creating an environment where recovery is nurtured, where every corner is designed to heal. This luxurious embrace acts as a cocoon, safeguarding and nurturing patients as they rediscover themselves.
