How it Works…
Our drug rehab aftercare prevention staff is committed to ensuring that the clients transition into everyday living goes as smoothly as possible. Our staff designs a relapse prevention plan for each client. Relapse prevention will address the individual triggers that might sabotage recovery. The aftercare prevention staff at our facilities will address behavior and also patterns of thought that may also hinder the recovery process.
Regardless of the relapse prevention plan during aftercare, it is the primary responsibility of the Best Drug Rehabilitation client to do the everyday work involved with drug rehab aftercare and continue a drug free existence. If the client feels they are at risk for relapse our staff is there to help the client. With relapse statistics so high, Best Drug Rehabilitation clients need as much help as possible.
Relapse Signs And Symptoms
1. Experiencing Post Acute Withdrawal:
I start having problems with one or more of the following; thinking difficulties, emotional overreaction problems, sleep disturbances, memory difficulties, becoming accident prone, and/or starting to experience a serious sensitivity to stress. I return to denial telling others that everything is “good” and “okay” when in fact it is not. I start experiencing Avoidance and Defensive Behavior. I avoid the individuals or situations that would give me honest feedback on my actions.
2. Starting to Crisis Build:
I get overwhelmed in everyday situations and can not solve my problems. I put everything off until I’m so overwhelmed with stress, and it seems like I will never find my way out.
3. Feeling Immobilized (Stuck):
I feel trapped in a no-win situation, where I believe that nothing will ever be “right” again.
4. Becoming Depressed:
I start feeling tired and useless. I begin to use destructive behavior a substance in attempt to feel normal.
5. Urges and Cravings (Thinking about Drinking/Using):
I begin to think and want drugs and substances, I convince myself that using these substances is the only way that I can feel “normal”. I convince myself that using is the only way I will ever feel normal again, and thus I deserve to use- because I deserve to feel normal.
6. Chemical Loss of Control (Drinking/Using):
I start using again, and decide to enjoy this “relapse” until I hit bottom again, my problems and addiction have just gotten worse. I thought I could use just enough of these drugs to feel happy and normal again, but I end up just getting sucked back into doing these drugs and substances uncontrollably again.
