The Process Of Relapsing after-rehab

Bouncing Back To Total Recovery

There is a looming concern about relapse by recovering patients after rehabilitation. You can restart your journey of living drug-free in case you have relapsed.

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. Rather than the continuous struggle against dependence and the temptation to reuse, one may opt to cave in.


The National Institute on Drug Abuse has made an announcement that the relapse rates during the process of recovery are in the region of 40 to 60%.


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. The next phase of recovery will be efficient when you identify these factors.


What Are The Reasons For Relapse

This is one incident that is usually very disappointing when it occurs. No fewer than 50 percent of recovering addicts experience a momentary lapse of reason and consume alcohol or drugs once again.

Prevention of this is possible with the awareness of the warning signals.

  • Not Being Serious About Your Sobriety
  • It helps to confirm and reaffirm your commitment to your goal otherwise, you are bound to go off-course.
  • In order to succeed you must be prepared to put in the hard work that is required to stay sober.
  • Regular appointments with the counsellor and/or attendance to the 12-step sessions are few options that would keep you on track.
  • Not Having A Support System
  • The presence of a support system whether it is in the form of a reliable friend or your family makes or enhances your chances in recovering.
  • Having a support group comprising of others during the recovery is vital.
  • You can engage in different activities and hobbies and even seek the guidance of your close relatives and friends as you try to recover.
  • Disinterest In Stopping
  • Some patients were just talked out and forced to rehab without really having the clear intentions for themselves to get well.
  • This underlying issue predisposes the patient to a much greater chance of relapse.
  • Not Being Prepared For Life Post Treatment
  • In order for smooth changeover into normal life after rehabilitation, formulation of a good regression avoidance strategy is useful.
  • A few factors like a broken household, bad companionship, loneliness and deleterious habits are to be noted as hindrances to abstinence.
  • Your recently found abstinence need precise detection of the initiators for its preservation.

What Are The Next Steps After Relapse

In cases where one dose led to another and perhaps that succeeding dose led to another dose, then that sounds like you are back to your old habit.

More stress is placed on some treatment options like cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) with high yielding results when used with those with thought disorder, when rehabilitation is done again. Many other therapies like meditation and yoga, fitness classes, and music and art therapy are there in many de-addiction facilities.


You must decide if undergoing rehab is necessary or not. It is advisable not to go through rehabilitation all over again because of one episode that may not repeat itself.

Your focus should be on the transitioning back to regular life from the very moment you enter a treatment centre after a relapse. One effective way of increasing your odds in recovering fully and avoid relapse is checking in a sober living home. It would also help if you have a plan or visual aids to remind you of your mission after leaving the treatment centre.
