Addiction Recovery Relapse Prevention

Relapse prevention begins immediately following detoxification. No need to wait until aftercare.

People in recovery need to understand how the disease of addiction manifests in them once the drugs and alcohol are out of their system. Once they identify their unique addictive behaviors, they must learn how to manage those thoughts and urges on a regular basis. Successful management of cravings, triggers and other addictive behaviors is the foundation of positive long-term recovery outcomes.

Why Is Addiction Relapse Prevention So Important?

Recovery doesn’t end when a client completes our program and leaves our facilities. The hardest part can be going back home to your old life. It doesn’t matter if you have been through a program before, if this is your first time or if you’ve been sober for many years.

While “relapse” is not an inevitable stage of change, it is best address it by acknowledging that potential for relapse is real. Steps must then be taken to plan for prevention while the client is clear in mind and body.

This is why we start relapse prevention education early and carry it through the entirety of a client’s extensive time in rehab treatment (up to 90 days). This invaluable education along with a customized aftercare plan gives clients coping strategies and resources to turn to when struggles arise in recovery.
