Self-Motivation To Complete Your Treatment Plan
An Individual Treatment Plan is a dynamic process. As and when you start achieving your goals, new goals or targets will be set. Your treatment plan would address mental as well as physical health. The plan would also be responsible to keep a check on your social and economic needs. You certainly should have a copy of your treatment plan, because you can’t work on your goals if you don’t know what they are.
- Educate yourself about rehab:
At first, it is crucial for you to educate yourself to know everything about rehabilitation and its process. There can be various reasons for you to consider rehabilitation. It is therefore essential to know various services and programs that the facilitation offers. Start looking for programs that specialize in your needs and concerns. For example, music therapy would be appropriate for you only if you love listening to music. Likewise, some specific spiritual belief or motivational session may not work if you do not have the same belief system. Hence, it is important to get educated about your options so that you can feel comfortable with your treatment.
- Accepting the treatment:
When you are sufficiently aware about your treatment plan after clarifying all the possible doubts and concerns, you can then go ahead and give your consent to treatment.
You must be aware and given information about why treatment is thought necessary, nature of the proposed treatment, possible side effects and what should be done if they occur, and other alternative treatments. It should be presented and explained to you in a way that you can understand. If you are doubtful and your doubt has not been cleared, then you can always negate your treatment plan.
- Try to not be hard on yourself:
“What doesn’t kill you, makes you stronger”
You should avoid being harsh on yourself, otherwise it will be very hard for you to be accepted by others. Accept who you are and smile for all the challenges that you have gone through as they have only made you stronger. That is why it is crucial to not be hard on yourself. Treat yourself exactly the way you treat your best friend. Also listen to the stories of others who are affected by similar problems and try stepping in their shoes. Let them be your inspiration.
- Treatment plans:
A treatment plan should be a brief clear statement of the treatment to be provided by the Area Mental Health Service. Treatment plans are an opportunity for you to put your wishes to the treating team and for the Board to consider them. Plans should be prepared, reviewed and revised on a regular basis as required. A treatment plan should consist of your wishes, whether the treatment is only to promote or maintain your health or wellbeing. The plan should contain any beneficial alternative treatments available.
Life is not at all easy and we all have problems and issues to deal with. You can always seek help from a friend or family member when you cannot deal with things and find it difficult to step up or step down, whatever is necessary. Motivation is not the same as discipline or willpower. It is a factor that helps you to give yourself a final push to accomplish a goal, even when that accomplishment feels nearly impossible.
Ultimately, if you don’t stay motivated, you are not going to be able to recover from your injury and get back on your feet.
