Preventing Relapse for Lifelong Recovery

We treat recovery as a lifelong journey and prioritize relapse prevention, equipping our clients with the tools, resources, and community support to maintain their sobriety after leaving our care.

Clinical Foundations for Relapse Prevention

Our clinical team’s expertise forms the backbone of our relapse prevention strategy. Using evidence-based practices, we delve into the root causes of addiction, identifying triggers, and building coping strategies tailored to each individual.

  • Understanding Triggers: Recognizing personal triggers is the first step in preventing relapse.

  • Coping Mechanisms: Developing healthy strategies for managing stress, negative emotions, and temptations is key to maintaining sobriety.

  • Practical Skill Application: Through targeted group sessions and close contact with sponsors, clients actively practice and refine the coping mechanisms they’ve learned, ensuring they’re well-prepared to face real-world triggers.

The Power of the 12 Step Program

A core component of our relapse prevention strategy is the incorporation of 12 step principles. These timeless tenets provide a structure for ongoing self-reflection, accountability, and community support.

  • Step Work: Regularly working through the steps with a sponsor promotes self-awareness, spiritual growth, improvement in all facets of life and tools to stay sober every day.

  • Meetings: Regular attendance at 12 step meetings offers consistent reminders of the gift of recovery and the awareness to recognize a potential relapse and course correct before it happens.

  • Comfort + Camaraderie: Clients get ample practice reaching out to our alumni in the local 12 step recovery community. This ensures they can seamlessly integrate into any 12-step community. They’ve also been immersed in the 12 step fellowship, showing them that instant connections, mutual understanding, and immediate support is available anywhere they go.
