Having an understanding about whether you need to begin the process of recovery all over again will depend on whether you have reverted back to your old habits or have fully relapsed and are using substances once again regularly.
It is important to stay positive after a relapse and treat your return to rehab as a setback than a failure. You need to be committed to the recovery process which takes quite some time before you can succeed in staying clean.
Many people relapse when they just come out of rehab, but a large percentage of them are able to overcome their momentary relapses and stay drug free for life. It is important to note that relapse can be very harmful to you will suffer the side effects and impacts of the substance once again.
Acknowledgment of the fact of the recent substance abuse should be considered in addition to your safety and health when deciding to back to rehab.
The 12 stages program and joining support groups is very instrumental in making sure that you don't relapse again. There is absolute relevance for knowledge of adequate and appropriate responses when you regress in order to achieve prolonged sobriety.
If the relapse is severe, undergoing rehab is recommended.
Group gathering attendance, communicating with a supervisor and therapist and abstinence from common initiators are ways to quickly respond to prevent regression. You can always stop the use of the drugs. If you have gone deep into the use of alcohol after you had stopped, you can always ask for professional help on how you can start recovering again.
Two methods can be used to determine whether you are a fit case for a rehab again. The duration of your drug or alcohol abuse and the intensity will need to be evaluated in the determination to be completed. A momentary slip and a complete relapse are not the same thing.
Falling into a relapse is not a sign of failure of the treatment plant; it just means the present treatment strategy needs to be recalibrated. It's tempting to back to old ways because of a number of reasons, like stress, feeling of boredom, and cravings. A relapse often makes their addiction worse than before for the addict. Reinforcement of the drug using habits is promoted by the fact that the user try to detach from his conscience because of disgrace and embarrassment. Withdrawal becomes hard as each day of relapse passes. The results of a relapse are usually very catastrophic.
The disease of addiction is a lifelong problem, and therefore, it must be controlled actively and managed every day during the recovery.
Going back for rehabilitation can be lifesaving despite the fact that it is an uncomfortable decision. If you want assistance in getting to one, you can get in touch with us.
Rehabilitation from alcohol or other substances should be sought immediately if you regressed. The strict rules and routines in the treatment facility are very helpful in alleviating your urges and symptoms.
It is suggested that seeking treatment from a different facility this time might be better in order to implement a new regimen that would be more effective.
One of the techniques that is being used for such cases is the Cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT). Learning about reactions to some initiators both living and non-living factors that promote the urge to use alcohol and other substances is one of the importance of CBT. During your second rehab you can learn ways to dodge and handle triggers.
Regression might have been precipitated by some circumstances and feelings necessitating that you should be able to identify this and apply this knowledge to guard against future occurrence. The possibility of needing newer, better ways to handle stress, like breathing-based meditation and yoga, cannot be ruled out. Each of the aforementioned strategies empowers newly-recovered addicts to hand stress and stressful situations positively, without falling back on alcohol or drugs for support.
Returning to rehab is not a backward step on the road to recovery but a forward step and one which shows your commitment to stay sober. He or she has realised the dangers of falling back into addiction and valued your life to bring in a positive change. This is the matter which gains importance at this stage.
You can repeat the heroic action of helping yourself again.
Recuperating users most times have more conviction to make their abstinence longer in their second attempt than their first simply because they have been at that point before. You stand a great chance of permanent recovery after you complete rehab following a relapse.
