Do I Need To Go Back To Rehab

Putting Your Road To Sobriety In Perspective

Having an understanding about whether you need to begin the process of recovery all over again will depend on whether you have reverted back to your old habits or have fully relapsed and are using substances once again regularly.


Going back to rehab in no way indicates that you or the process for the rehab has failed. The journey of addiction has long-lasting effects, and it is essential to act as and when required in order to remain in the path to recovery.

It is common to relapse during the early stages of a recovery. However, many people who have failed have managed to bounce back again to regain control of their sobriety. It is important to note that relapse can be very harmful to you will suffer the side effects and impacts of the substance once again.


Your own wholeness and security is utmost in knowing whether to go back or not to rehabilitation.


The 12 stages program and joining support groups is very instrumental in making sure that you don't relapse again. When it comes to maintaining long-term recovery, it is also incredibly important to understand the responses to a relapse.


When Do I Consider Submitting To Therapy Again

If the relapse is severe, undergoing rehab is recommended.

Group gathering attendance, communicating with a supervisor and therapist and abstinence from common initiators are ways to quickly respond to prevent regression. It is imperative that you seek out the support and double your efforts to remain sober. On the other hand, it is best to fight the urge once you have gone deep into the habit again and ask for immediate help.


Two methods can be used to determine whether you are a fit case for a rehab again. The duration of your drug or alcohol abuse and the intensity will need to be evaluated in the determination to be completed. Total regression can be tell apart from just an isolated goof.

  • A short-lived event which is usually only for a day when the substance is used for a brief period is identified as a "slip."
  • A momentary lapse of judgment or a slip might make the person realize the risks they would be taking if they continues drug abuse, which in turn helps them stop before returning to the old ways.
  • A full relapse is when a user starts using the drug with the same intensity as or greater intensity than before for a considerable length of time.
  • This is the time people start skipping meetings and try to keep away from the other members of the support groups.

What Causes Failure Of The Previous Regimen

Relapsing may not be considered as a failure with the treatment rather it is an opportunity for improvement in terms of the commitment in executing the post-rehab plan. It's tempting to back to old ways because of a number of reasons, like stress, feeling of boredom, and cravings. A relapse often makes their addiction worse than before for the addict. A relapse is often accompanied by negative emotions, like guilt and low self-esteem, which ironically makes the situation worse because the person uses drugs with greater force to deal with inner turmoil. It becomes harder to stop the more the user indulges in the act of using. A relapse is a serious issue, as returning to abusing drugs has severe consequences.


One should be able to acknowledge that sobriety becomes a daily way of life coming out from the treatment facility.

Returning to a treatment facility can be dreadful yet it can spell your peril should you decide against it. If you want assistance in getting to one, you can get in touch with us.


Round Two Of Rehabilitation

Rehabilitation from alcohol or other substances should be sought immediately if you regressed. It is extremely important to get back into a treatment program fast. The actions taken will immediately cut off the access to the substance and help the individual to regain control over their recovery.

Different programs have different treatment methodologies and that's why you might benefit from enrolling into a different program than the previous one.

Dependence is often treated by Cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT). This therapeutic process readies the patient in identifying and responding to the triggers and other psychosocial factors contributing to relapse. People are trained on how they can overcome some of the temptations and avoid relapses.

Learning how to control these temptations is very important and will help you stick to the recovery process for a long time. You could very well have a requirement to find new methods to deal with the stress and explore techniques of relaxation such as deep breathing, meditation and yoga. After the completion of the rehabilitation, recuperating users benefit immensely from these techniques.


You Are Not Unsuccessful If You Report Back To Rehab

Returning to rehab is not a backward step on the road to recovery but a forward step and one which shows your commitment to stay sober. The key takeaway is you understand how dangerous addiction is and how valuable life is to throw it away by continuing drug abuse.

You have picked yourselves before earlier, and you just need to do it all over again.

The addicts are always more committed to the process the second time they report back to a rehab and always recover during this phase. You stand a great chance of permanent recovery after you complete rehab following a relapse.
