Life after spending time in a mental health center may feel limitless and exciting at the beginning. Settling back into one’s home and reconnecting with family and friends can feel like just the reward needed after time away. After some time, however, people go back to their normal routines and may not check in as frequently. For those in recovery, this can feel threatening to their progress.

People who are in recovery from alcohol or substance use disorders often will experience relapse or risk of resuming an unhealthy use of substances. This makes it important to remain aware of how to prevent and treat relapse. Find out more about the underlying causes of addiction and what addiction therapy programs can help with recovery by calling Viewpoint Dual Recovery in Prescott, Arizona, or messaging us online today. Our highly skilled and empathetic team is prepared to provide quality service and care.

Can Relapse Be Prevented?

Relapse PreventionYes! Relapse can be prevented, and now more than ever, we have powerful strategies for how to maintain recovery. If you or a loved one is going through a difficult stage of recovery, it may be that more support is needed in one or more critical areas, including:

  • Emotional support through relationships, friends, and family
  • Getting enough rest and sleep
  • Having a routine that works well for you
  • Having the time and space to practice healthy alternatives to drugs and alcohol
  • Keeping drugs and alcohol away from your surroundings
  • Finding and maintaining healthy ways to celebrate good times and cope with difficulties

Having a solid support system is important for recovery. This can include friends, family, co-workers, and healthcare professionals. Staying connected with those who care and want the best for you can go a long way. If you or a loved one are at risk of relapse, don’t wait to reach out for help. It’s always easier to take on your fears if you’re not alone.
