When someone has made the decision to seek recovery for drug or alcohol addiction, it’s important that this decision is respected and upheld. However, after completing a rehab program, it can be difficult to maintain sobriety. Environmental or social triggers can make it hard to stay away from drugs and alcohol. When you enroll in a relapse prevention therapy program, you can learn and practice new coping skills, as well as plan ahead for stressful events. Solution Based Treatment & Detox offers relapse prevention planning for Southern California residents. Find out more about our programs today online, or call 833.999.1941 for more information.
Why You Should Have a Relapse Prevention Plan
Traditional rehab centers may have left you feeling as though you were thrown back into the deep end after graduation. While traditional 12-step methods can still be helpful, a more holistic approach offers longer-term support for sobriety. Relapse prevention planning can be a crucial part of recovery, as it helps you to envision what life can look like post-rehab.
When someone is going through addiction recovery, they may experience relapse triggers at any time after gaining sobriety. While people may want to believe that rehab is one-and-done and staying sober is easy, relapse triggers can affect your life for years or decades to come. Some of the symptoms that can lead to relapse include:
- Overwhelming or intense emotions
- Fatigue and exhaustion
- Feelings of isolation from friends and family
- Anxiety, agitation, and mood swings
Those who are transitioning out of rehab and returning to their home and daily routines are the most vulnerable to these symptoms. With relapse prevention planning, a clinician can work with you using cognitive-behavioral therapy. This can give you a framework for handling difficult emotions and symptoms without relapsing.
Additionally, you can feel more assertive in your resolve against relapse with a sober companion or community. At Solution Based Treatment & Detox, you can find a wellspring of support from our caring and diverse team.
