Relapse Prevention


Successful Relapse Prevention Plan: Coping Mechanisms & Mental Health

Developing a successful relapse prevention plan is considered by many to be the most important step in the addiction recovery process. At Connection 2 Recovery we want to see you successfully navigate your post-treatment cravings, triggers and urges. This is how your substance abuse treatment can lead you to a lifetime of sobriety. We offer the best evidence-based techniques to help you continue on your path to healthy living through staying sober.

Cognitive behavioral therapy is a cornerstone of alcohol and drug abuse rehabilitation. In this process, we analyze the cognitive patterns of the individual patient that could trigger a relapse into substance abuse. Connection 2 Recovery’s licensed practitioners realize that every person is different. They had varying circumstances and life experiences that led to their alcoholism or drug abuse, and therefore need personalized coping mechanisms to reduce stress associated with their newly found sobriety and a potential relapse. Our support systems include family therapy, group relapse prevention therapy, stress-management therapy groups and interpersonal skills groups. We emphasize a ‘social model’ of treatment to help our patients prepare for a new life in the outside world. Relapsing can cause a lot of pain and suffering for not only yourself, but your friends and family are deeply affected as well.

Techniques to help you right away

Understanding your personal needs and desires is important in developing a lasting relapse prevention strategy tailored to your needs. C2R’s inpatient treatment centers are some of the most successful in the United States. Our cognitive behavioral model approach addresses the different high-risk situations, emotional and societal contributors that may lead to a relapse. Through continual outpatient care, group and family therapy we work with the individual as they prepare to return to society. Addicts navigating a successful recovery regimen are more likely to remain sober and avoid relapse when they have:

  • The confidence to change
  • Ability to restrict ‘high-risk situations’
  • A higher sense of purpose
  • Honesty with themselves
  • The humility to ask for help when needed
  • Staying sober requires a lifelong commitment and willingness to change everything in your life. From your relationships with lovers, friends and even family members to simply redefining what it means to have fun. Warning signs of relapse are instilled in the patient so they feel prepared to conquer their habits of the past. Old hangouts such as bars, parties and specific people should be avoided to eliminate extraneous triggers that could all build up to a relapse.

    Relapse occurs, but it is not the end of the world Awareness of your personal mental health and stability are the key factors to your guided self-recovery. One of the effects of addiction is that it can show up and make you feel powerless at some point in the recovery process. Even if a relapse occurs, there is something you can do.
