The Way Forward After Relapse after-rehab

Bouncing Back To Total Recovery

A relapse is a stage which is a part during the recovery process. In order to attain abstinence after one has regressed, several actions can be taken.

There is always a probability that one will regress irrespective of the effort, adherence and devotion dedicated to rehabilitation.

Indignity and remorse among patients often follow relapse. It is natural to momentarily feel like quitting on your commitment to stay sober and letting yourself fall headlong into the self-destructive path of addiction when you relapse.


Data suggests that nearly 50 percent of recently-recovered drug addicts relapse.


Familiarization with possible conditions that bring about regression and drawing out an avoidance strategy are some of the ways you can turn regression to your advantage. Refocusing on the solution to the root cause of the relapse is a reinvigorating energy that renews your zeal to beat addiction once and for all.


Relapse And The Reasons For It

It is saddening that regression happens after attainment of abstinence for a period of time. An estimated 50% of recovering patients experience this momentary vulnerability to old habits leading them to relapse.

You can prevent relapse if you are aware of the warning signs.

What To Do After Relapsing

A meticulous management plan is necessitated when there is regression to recurrent drug misuse.

The second time may need you to be put in some of the effective treatment programs such as cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) so that you can fully recover without relapsing again. Artistry and songs can be used in treatment, resting techniques; exercises and horse psychotherapy are among the additional treatments.


It is important to know if you need to go back to inpatient care in cases where you slipped. You probably don't need to undergo rehab in case it was a one-off slip and you are hundred percent committed to not let it happen again.

When you enter rehab after experiencing a relapse, stronger emphasis should be on helping you to smoothly transition back to real life. A clean environment with availability of support groups is the best option for someone who has just come out of rehab. It would also help if you have a plan or visual aids to remind you of your mission after leaving the treatment centre.
