Start Your Recovery
Relapse prevention is the singular focus of Recovery First programs, and it should be the focus of anyone struggling with addiction. Relapse prevention generally consists of various therapies and treatments that are combined with a rigorous daily recovery program that the individual must proactively nurture and grow. While each person’s triggers, stress management techniques, therapy needs, and overall recovery program must be customized to each individual, the following components often comprise the most successful relapse prevention plans:
Strong Support Network
A strong support network is the backbone of any successful relapse prevention plan. This can include family members, spouses, partners, friends, other members of recovery groups, and communities that support recovery or a clean lifestyle, AA and NA sponsors, etc.
Exercise & Nutrition
Many people in recovery fail to understand how important a proper diet and exercise is to a successful relapse prevention program. However, eating right and staying fit is critical considering that the disease of addiction is neurological in nature.
Post-Acute Withdrawal Management
Post-Acute Withdrawal, known by the acronym of PAWS, is a condition that sets in shortly after detox from drugs or alcohol is complete. The symptoms of PAWS are varied but in most cases are combined with an inexplicable desire to use that many are unable to ignore.
In order to make a relapse prevention plan work, people in recovery must find meaningful things to do with their lives. Whether this consists of excelling at a career, taking classes, exploring artistic outlets, traveling or any other healthy preoccupation, staying mentally and physically active is critical for all people in recovery.
A successful relapse prevention program actively recognizes threats and seeks to neutralize them. Environmental threats can come in the form of poor living conditions, lack of suitable housing, lack of employment opportunities, constant associations with people who use drugs or drink, a stressful workplace or home life; all of these environmental stresses can be triggers that cause an addict to relapse.
