Relapse Prevention Tips


Relapse prevention programs are designed to help recovering addicts work through challenging situations when temptations are present. It’s important to understand that recovering from addiction is a life-long practice. The recovery process takes tools and skills learned through treatment to maintain sobriety and a healthy lifestyle. Banyan Treatment Center shares the best tips for relapse prevention for those in recovery.

Preventing Relapse after Drug and Alcohol Treatment

  • Focus on your progress thus far and always set goals for yourself.
  • Stay positive and understand that the decision you made to go through treatment has completely changed your life for the better.
  • Be mindful and aware of what your triggers are. Don’t put yourself in situations that you know will bring about the urge to use again.
  • Stay busy and fill your time with positive hobbies and activities. Too much down time can cause recovering addicts to go back to their old ways.
  • Surround yourself with supportive people who respect your sobriety and are there for you when times get tough. These people may include a sponsor and other sober friends in recovery.
  • Ask for help when you need it.
  • Continue your aftercare plans.
