Fostering Resilience Through Relapse Prevention
We understand how important sobriety and clean time is to a person in recovery. The individual is making progress each day to rebuild their life, alcohol and drug free. However, life can present challenges when we least expect them.
Sometimes, an individual may feel overwhelmed by all that life presents them now that their life has been restored. The last thing a person in recovery wants to do is pick up a drink or a drug to alleviate the stressful feelings that they encounter as they learn to live life on life’s terms.
Continuing care is crucial to the addiction recovery process, especially in early recovery. Our relapse prevention program teaches patients how to deal with everyday life issues that have the potential to become triggers for a relapse. Learning healthy coping skills and emotional healing are at the heart of ongoing progress in addiction recovery.
