8 Dimensions of wellness
8 DIMENSIONS OF WELLNESS
Addiction touches every part of the addict’s life. The disease casts a shadow over all the things that bring a person joy and give their life meaning. In order to live a happy, fulfilling, sober life, recovery must be just as powerful. Through our 8 Dimensions of Infinite Wellness, we help the addict rebuild their entire self, integrating recovery into everything that’s important to them. With our 8 Dimensions of Infinite Wellness and the proven Twelve Step method, they emerge from treatment with a holistic plan for a transformed, sober life.
Emotional Wellness refers to positive self-concept, deals with feelings constructively and develops positive qualities such as optimism, trust, self-confidence, and determination.
Infinite Recovery believes in discovering and treating the core emotional issues that underlie destructive coping strategies leading to emotional unwellness. Poor emotional wellness contributes to addictive, self-destructive patterns, which oftentimes are related to undiagnosed, or misdiagnosed, psychological disorders.
Intellectual Wellness is about restoring your relationship with the things that stimulate your mind. In the absence of substances, you’ll find that you have more time to enjoy reading, writing, art, learning new things, watching TV or movies, and pursuing your own creative endeavors.
We encourage all of our clients to spend time exploring their passions and making new discoveries about themselves.
RECOGNIZING SUBSTANCE USE DISORDER
If you or your loved one is struggling with substance abuse, honestly ask yourself the following 11 questions from the National Institute on Drug Abuse. If the person you care about is willing, you can include them in the discussion. We use the term “drug” to refer to illicit drugs, prescription drugs, and/or alcohol in this context.
- Does the person take the drug in larger amounts or for longer than intended?
- Does the person want to cut down or stop using the drug but cannot?
- Do they spend a lot of time getting, using, or recovering from the drug?
- Do they have cravings and urges to use the drug?
- Are they unable to manage responsibilities at work, home, or school because of drug use?
- Do they continue to use a drug, even when it causes problems in relationships?
- Do they give up important social, recreational, or work-related activities because of drug use?
- Does the person use drugs again and again, even when it puts him or her in danger?
- Do they continue to use, even while knowing that a physical or mental problem could have been caused or made worse by the drug?
- Do they take higher doses of the drug to get the wanted effect?
- Have they developed withdrawal symptoms, which can be relieved by taking more of the drug?
- Some withdrawal symptoms can be obvious, but others can be more subtle—like irritability or nervousness.
If the answer to some or all of these questions is “yes,” then you or your friend or loved one might have a substance abuse problem. In the most severe cases, it is called an addiction.

Levels of Treatment
Successful long-term recovery requires a continuum of care, which is why we offer three levels of substance use disorder treatment support. Each level has various intensities and combinations of total wellness treatment. It’s not about getting more or less support, it’s about getting the right support. Upon admission, every client at Infinite Recovery is partnered with a master’s level therapist, a licensed addiction counselor and a New Life Trainer. We help each client determine what the best treatment plan is for his or her individual recovery journey.
Recovery is an individual journey that requires individual treatment. We approach the recovery journey holistically, with a focus on total life transformation. Recovery isn’t a break from “real life,” it’s integrated into everything else that matters. Infinite Recovery supports our clients as they restore and transform not only their health, but their relationships with loved ones, work and school, social activities and the self. We call this 8 Dimensions of Wellness.
