The Power of Precision: Why Goals Matter

Attempting to overcome addiction without clear goals in mind is like trying to build a house without blueprints.

Goals are the building blocks for any successful journey through recovery, as they point out the way forward, motivate and provide progress indicators. 

Nevertheless, let’s take a look at some numbers:

  • According to Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) 2021 survey results, 70 million adults in America aged 18 years or older admitted needing treatment for substance use.
  • Even so, the National Institute on Drug Abuse observes that 40-60 percent of those who have gone through a substance abuse treatment program relapse.
  • It is also quite remarkable that SAMHSA indicates that 72.2 percent of those with substance issues regard themselves as being in recovery.

While these numbers appear discouraging, they also represent a ray of hope. 

For example, recent studies indicate that of those who want to quit alcohol or drug abuse, about 75 percent succeed in achieving their goal
