Lifetime – Bouncing Back
You’ll often hear in alcohol and drug rehab that relapse is part of recovery. That’s because addiction is a powerful disease, and for some people the lure of using drugs and alcohol, even after long periods of sobriety, is overwhelming.
This can happen when life’s triggers and stressors come up—those things that make people with drug or alcohol addiction want to use or drink—and the person’s defenses are down. It could also be when a person hasn’t sufficiently addressed the emotional and psychological factors underlying their addiction. In other cases, they may have received substance abuse treatment, but they have not developed a relapse prevention plan as part of their program.
Watch this addiction story about what to do if you relapse—and what’s available to you when you’re willing to keep reaching for recovery. Our admissions specialists are here to help.
