What you can do about your relapse

  • Understand that for many people, relapse is a common part of the recovery process. Having a relapse does not mean that you have ruined your recovery. But how you respond to your relapse will make a huge difference to your sobriety – and your future.
  • Deal with it, don't ignore it. By ignoring your relapse, not talking about it and avoiding your feelings, you are increasing your risk of further relapse, and jeopardising your future recovery. rather than a relapse, seek out treatment and put together a relapse prevention plan.
  • Other ways you can get help are to re-engage with your support network, for example, calling Life Works, phoning your sponsor, talking to a professional therapist, a trusted friend or family member, or attending a 12-step Fellowship meeting (see below for details). These are all effective relapse prevention strategies.
  • It's essential that you get relapse prevention help now. You cannot deal with this alone. There is support available to you and the sooner you access it, the better.

Life Works can give you relapse prevention help and get you get back on the road to recovery. All it it takes is a call to our admissions professionals at 0800 081 0700 or filling out our contact form.
