Relapse incidents are common after addiction recovery. The exact statistics
vary depending on the type of addiction, but studies show that more than
half of the people who attend rehab will undergo a relapse at some point.
Do not let these statistics discourage you. While it is true that relapse
occurs after “recovery,” there are many people who leave rehab
early or call themselves “recovered” without fully immersing
themselves in the program the first time.
After your initial treatment and abstaining from your addiction for a time,
you may start to believe you are cured. There are so many temptations
and pressures that you simply cannot anticipate in the beginning stages
of your recovery. It is vital for you to stay engaged with your rehab
and see the program through to the end.
Why Do So Many Former Addicts Relapse?
Addiction often develops when someone is unable to deal with stressors
in their life in a healthy way. This is not their fault, mental health
is a severely underestimated concern in the United States and its hard
for people to even realize they are engaging in destructive behavior until
it harms themselves or others. The Blueprints for Recovery rehabilitation
program should help you come to terms with these unhealthy behaviors and
learn how to change your response into something more positive.
As people transition from rehab back to their normal lives, they may neglect
to build a support system. This is a grievous error. Changing behavior
is hard and without someone there to help you when old feelings reemerge,
it can be difficult to resist temptation.
Early signs of a potential relapse include:
- Mood Swings
- Not Asking For Help
- Not Going To Meetings
- Poor Eating Habits
- Poor Sleep Habits
