Relapse occurs, but it is not the end of the world.
Staying sober is the goal of a successful recovery plan. We tailor a unique needs assessment for each of our patients. Sober living requires a lifelong commitment and willingness to change everything in your life. From your relationships with friends, family members and even lovers to simply redefining what it means to have fun. Warning signs of relapse are communicated to the patient so they feel prepared to abolish the habits of their past. Your past hangouts such as bars, parties and certain people should be avoided to eliminate the extraneous triggers that could build up to a relapse.
Heightened awareness of your personal mental health and stability are important factors to your guided self-recovery. One of the effects of drug & alcohol addiction is that it can come back out of nowhere and make you feel powerless. This happens to most people at some point in the recovery process. Even if a relapse occurs, there is something you can do.
