Every individual goes on a unique journey during their addiction treatment. Some individuals can achieve sobriety in a short time frame, while it takes others years and several treatments to finally reach sobriety. If you have engaged in addiction treatment in the past and recently experienced a relapse, you are not alone. It’s important to understand that relapse is part of recovery. Nearly half of individuals will relapse at least once during their journey to sobriety. This doesn’t mean they’ve failed, or that treatment was unsuccessful, but that support needs to be ongoing since addiction is a chronic disease. It can be difficult to maintain your path to sobriety after returning to your addiction, but it is possible. Northern Illinois Recovery Center can guide individuals through treatment and recovery, helping them learn more about how to begin addiction treatment again.
Understand What Caused Your Relapse
The best way to ensure relapse prevention in the future is to understand what triggered your desire to return to your addiction. Only you truly know what caused this to occur. Whether the cause was big or small, you must come to terms with your decision.
It is perfectly normal to struggle with identifying the exact reason you released, especially if you have not sobered up since the event occurred. You need a clear mind to understand the situation and analyze it.
Admit You Need To Begin Addiction Treatment Again
Once you understand the road that led you here, it is time for you to admit you need to begin treatment again. It does not matter if this is the first time you have relapsed if you have been sober for years, or on your ninth addiction treatment program. To begin the road to recovery once again, you need to admit that you need help.
This is far easier said than done. However, once you admit this to yourself and your loved ones, you will be one step closer to achieving the sober life you have worked so hard to achieve.
Determine If You Need Inpatient Or Outpatient Treatment
Depending on the severity of your relapse, you may need inpatient or outpatient addiction treatment. If you experienced a severe lapse in judgment and went on a long bender, you will see better returned through an inpatient program. A less severe and shorter episode could mean you only need outpatient care. This is a decision you need to consider heavily. After all, this decision will determine how you will continue on your path to sobriety.
