Life Works - the leading specialist in relapse treatment
When an individual begins their journey on the road to recovering from a serious addiction, they may end up relapsing.
Relapse is when you slip back into old and destricitve behaviours. This could be purging (if you have an eating disorder), drinking (if you are an alcoholic), or using drugs if you have a drug addiction. Replase also comes in a number of forms. A small relapse for an alcoholic could be havig just one drink. A larger relapse could be having a drink, losing controll and then haveing more drinks. Both of these can be a problem but it is important to understand that relapse is not the end of recovery.
Relapsing does not mean that the individual has failed at recovering from the addiction. It is very common for a former addict to relapse. There is no shame in coming back to recieve more treatment if you have had a relapse. For those who are suffering from an addiction and have recently relapsed, Life Works has a range of judgement free relapse treatments available. We can offer you support encouragement and treatment to help you get back on the road to recovery.

I think I need help with Relapse Prevention, how can Life Works help me?
Life Works has helped many people recover after a relapse. The most important thing to remember is that relapsing is nothing to be ashamed of as long as you get back in recovery. Relapse is rather like a boulder rolling down a hill. The longer you let it build up momentum, the harder it will be to stop. Life Works handles relapse by providing a safe place to recover. We stabilise the client, helping them rebuild their support network, work with them to create healthy coping strategies and overcoming the guilt that sometimes comes with relapse. We also understand that relapse can be caused by a number of different issues. Some people may relapse because they left treatment too early. Other people may have become a bit too complacent with their recovery work. Plenty of other people relapse simply because they are put in a situation that they feel overwhelms their more healthy coping strategies. By calling Life Works, you can prevent your relapse from getting worse. If you would like to learn more about relapse treatment you can call Life Works at 0800 081 0700 or fill out our contact form.
