Relapse Prevention

Relapse prevention involves developing strategies and techniques to anticipate and manage triggers, cravings, and risky situations that may lead to a return to substance use after completing a recovery program. Relapse prevention empowers individuals to maintain sobriety and prevent a recurrence of past behaviors associated with addiction. Find out more about creating a relapse prevention plan, as well as other helpful information about addiction treatment below. 

Relapse Prevention Plan

Having a good relapse prevention plan in place is vital once you complete your treatment in either an inpatient or outpatient program. If you are already in a program for addiction treatment, your care team will help you develop a plan before you graduate from treatment. This plan can become your support when you are facing an especially challenging day once you leave treatment.. 

Relapse Prevention Strategies

Having a strong collection of strategies will help you pin down various ways to avoid relapse post-recovery. A few important relapse prevention strategies to develop include: 

  • Develop healthy coping mechanisms such as journaling, hobbies, or creative outlets.
  • Establish a strong support network of friends, family, and mentors for support.
  • Stay vigilant about triggers and avoid high-risk situations.
  • Maintain a balanced lifestyle with adequate sleep, nutrition, and self-care.
  • Identify and address underlying issues or co-occurring disorders through therapy or counseling.
  • Engage in self-assessment to monitor thoughts, emotions, and behaviors related to substance use.

Potential Relapse Prevention Activities

Take the time to make a list of activities you can pull out at times when you need to distract your mind. A few activities you can try when you are feeling overwhelmed include: 

  • Exercise
  • Mindfulness and meditation
  • Attend a relapse prevention group meeting or therapy session
  • Reach out to someone in your sober support network
  • Utilize relaxation techniques such as deep breathing
  • Engage in activities such as painting, drawing, writing, or playing a musical instrument

The Importance of Relapse Prevention for Substance Use Disorder

Relapse prevention is paramount for individuals with substance use disorder. It serves as insurance against setbacks in their recovery journey. By implementing effective strategies and support systems, individuals can identify triggers, develop coping mechanisms, and cultivate resilience. It’s a proactive approach that helps people maintain sobriety and live life free of drugs and alcohol.

Do I Need to Detox Before Residential Treatment?

While not always necessary, many individuals experience uncomfortable or even dangerous withdrawal symptoms upon cessation of addictive substances. Residential detox provides a safe environment where trained professionals monitor vital signs while your body rids itself of dangerous substances. 

Our Detox Programs

We provide safe and comfortable detox treatment facilities to help you or a loved one detox safely. While in our care, your symptoms of withdrawal will be monitored and carefully managed. Once your detox is complete, we will help you find a treatment program suitable for you. 

Our Residential Treatment Programs

Our residential treatment programs at Solution Based Treatment place you in a therapeutic environment 24 hours a day. These programs last between 30 and 60 days, and meals and lodging are included. 

Our Approach to Treatment

Our Other Treatment Programs

Intensive Outpatient Programs (IOP)

IOP provides intensive therapeutic support for your recovery journey while you continue to manage life responsibilities. These programs can vary but often include features like weekly therapy sessions and other tools to help you succeed. 

Day Treatment – Partial Hospitalization Programs (PHP) 

PHP treatment programs are day treatment programs that involves outpatient care. These programs work well for clients who need structured support but have jobs and families to take care of while getting treatment. 

Will Insurance Cover Treatment?

Health insurance usually does pay for treatment for addiction to some degree. The extent of coverage or how much you will pay out of pocket for something like attending a relapse prevention outpatient treatment facility can vary depending on your policy. For example, insurance may only pay for relapse prevention groups or meetings that are available at accredited treatment centers. 

PPO Insurance Coverage for Inpatient Treatment

Most rehabs that accept PPO insurance will be part of a provider network, but you do have more freedom to choose a provider with these plans. Be sure to talk to your insurer or chosen treatment facility about specific coverage amounts. Call us at (833) 999-1941 to see if your insurance will cover your treatment costs.

HMO Insurance Coverage for Inpatient Treatment

While there are rehabs that accept HMO insurance, including SBT, there may be a few more steps to obtain coverage. HMO plans may require you to obtain a preliminary referral to receive treatment from a mental health provider. We can verify your benefits in as little as an hour and we’re in-network with many insurance companies.

Detox Insurance Coverage

If you need detox before transitioning to another level of addiction treatment, insurance will most likely cover the cost of your treatment. Detox ensures you move through the withdrawal process as safely as possible under medical supervision.
