Substance Abuse Relapse Prevention

Relapse Prevention Program at Banyan

Recovering from substance abuse isn’t a one-time thing but rather a life-long commitment to yourself to stay sober. Even after years of sobriety, the challenges of being sober when you were once addicted to drugs or alcohol may not entirely go away. And while this may sound scary, our drug rehabilitation center can assure you that getting sober is worth it. Relapse may be a common occurrence for people in early recovery, but it’s not inevitable. There are ways that you can prevent relapse and stick to your sobriety for the rest of your life. In order to help our patients stick with their recovery goals, we offer a relapse prevention program at Banyan Treatment Centers.



What Is Relapse Prevention?

The goal of substance abuse relapse prevention is to help individuals recognize the signs of relapse and act accordingly. Very rarely is relapse a sudden decline, but rather a gradual transition from being all-in to teeter-tottering between sobriety and substance abuse. When it comes to avoiding relapse, there are a few key elements to consider, such as changing your lifestyle to accommodate your sobriety, being entirely honest about your struggles, asking for help when you need it, practicing self-care, and not bending the rules. But this is much easier said than done. It’s difficult for people to implement basic relapse prevention strategies if they’ve never received any guidance on the subject. So, we wanted to change that.



Drug Relapse Prevention Program at Banyan

Our relapse prevention program at Banyan Treatment Centers focuses on teaching patients addiction relapse prevention strategies they can apply to their everyday lives. It’s easy to stick with your recovery plan when you’re under the watchful guidance of our team, but what happens after rehab? Our goal is not only to help patients recover from substance abuse but also to teach them how to prevent drug addiction relapse in rehab programs.



We know that whether you’ve been sober for a week or a year, temptation is lurking around every corner. It’s even normal in recovery. There are ways to avoid this temptation and to manage it appropriately when it presents itself. Addiction recovery isn’t a matter of testing your strength but rather about developing self-awareness and understanding what your triggers or temptations are. This is exactly what we focus on in our relapse prevention program. We teach our patients that feeling tempted to use or drink again isn’t a sign of weakness but rather a normal challenge of recovery that they will often face. We also impress on them that although relapse isn’t failure, there’s so much they can do to actively stay focused on their recovery goals and avoid falling back into their old habits.
