Start Your Recovery
Treatment is Just the Beginning
Recovery First recognizes that addiction is a chronic, relapsing disease. With this in mind, our goal is to help our clients develop relapse prevention strategies as a component of their long-term recovery program. To help personalize relapse prevention techniques, we help clients identify their triggers for drug use, difficult interpersonal situations, relationship stressors, and individuals whose past association with drug or alcohol use may increase the probability of relapse. Successful relapse prevention plans often include these following components:
Strong Support Network
Being around people who are aware of your addiction and support your recovery can be the backbone of a successful relapse prevention plan. This can include family members, spouses, partners, friends, members of other 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.
