What Does Relapse Prevention Mean?

Drug or alcohol addiction is a chronic illness, while the main goal of recovery is sobriety, sometimes it can be difficult and a relapse can occur. Relapsing does not mean that the treatment has failed, however it can throw a serious curve ball into your recovery. Relapse prevention is a specific plan of activities or strategies that can be used to stop addicts from relapsing.

Examples of Relapse Prevention Activities

Taking into consideration our clients personalities, we can recommend exciting and fun prevention activities and strategies that are meaningful and effective. Whether it’s assigning a sponsor, or suggesting various classes or workshops, the prevention programs are as unique as the clients who use them. Some examples of excellent prevention activities include: These prevention activities are used in conjunction with other outpatient services and will allow clients to enjoy sobriety and learn new things about themselves.

  • Outdoor activities like hiking and gardening
  • Playing games like Chess
  • Learning a martial art
  • Learning or enhancing computer skills
  • Physical activities such as yoga or a gym membership
  • Enrolment in acting classes or a choir
  • Joining a club or group
  • And more!

How is Beachway Different for Relapse Prevention?

When you work with one of the expert therapists at NAATP accredited Beachway, you can expect individualized and compassionate care. Our counselors and therapists keep small case files, so that they can focus on the specific needs of their clients. During treatment, the team at Beachway becomes a family. Your counselors and therapists will get to know you and your likes and dislikes. This personal relationship between client and therapist makes developing relapse prevention strategies easier and more organic. By working with a therapist who knows you well, you won’t run the risk of being exposed to activities or strategies that may tarnish your experience with the potential of causing relapse.

How Does the Holistic Approach Work?

At the Florida Department of Children and Families accredited Beachway we work on the principle of the holistic approach. This means we work to heal the mind, body and soul of our clients. By addressing issues at the very core of addiction we can help our clients move forward from addiction and lead happy, productive and inspiring lives. When a client enters outpatient care we make sure they are well supported. With weekly therapy sessions and various outpatient care options, our clients are able to get to know themselves better than they ever did before, without addiction holding them back.

What to Expect with a Relapse Prevention Plan

Different from an activity, strategies are worked on from the very start of treatment. Since the main goal of recovery is maintaining it, a strong prevention strategy needs to be in place from the start. Beachway offers several programs that assist with preventing relapse. Some of the most popular programs we offer include:

Other strategies can be put in place such as attending outside group sessions such as Alcoholics Anonymous or Narcotics Anonymous.

What Role Does Family Play in Relapse Prevention?

One of the most important components of a successful recovery from drug or alcohol addiction is the family aspect. In many cases, addicts seek treatment at the request of their families after an intervention. When family support is strong, the person in recovery can rely on family to play a part in relapse prevention. In other cases, if the support of the family is not where it should be, we offer family workshops and therapy sessions to coach family members on things such as how to stop enabling or how to help a loved one with recovery and preventing relapse. In these sessions, logistical questions are also answered about managing finances and practical ways to help loved ones in recovery.

What Happens if I Relapse?

Since addiction is a chronic disease that is often worsened by co-occurring mental illnesses, it can be expected that the dangers of relapse can be very real at times. What’s important to remember is how you will deal with it and move on with your relapse prevention. There are generally two classifications of relapse: a slip or a full relapse. Typically a slip can happen if an addict temporarily goes back to drugs or alcohol but is able to stop before they become addicted again. Slips are characterized by the addict feeling guilty about what happened and wanting to make it right again. A relapse is a bit more serious. A relapse involves going back to drug or alcohol abuse in the same capacity as they were before recovery. In case of a slip or relapse it’s important to immediately stop the behavior that caused you to slip or relapse. By talking to your support system or putting more focus on the relapse prevention plan that had been outlined, you can overcome the slip or relapse and get back into sobriety. Feeling guilty about a slip is not helpful, in recovery it is more important to take responsibility for your action and move on.
