In our last two blog posts, we explained how family education and emotional support can help a loved one recover from drug addiction. Today, we’ll talk about how our drug treatment program helps addicts avoid a drug relapse.
If the tragic story of actor Philip Seymour Hoffman’s death has taught us anything, it’s that addiction is forever. He was reportedly clean for two decades before he relapsed in 2014.
This is why we put so much importance on relapse prevention as part of our drug abuse treatment program. Getting someone to stop using the drugs is only part of the addiction story!
Relapse Prevention Support at The Raleigh House
There are many triggers for drug relapse. Stress (or other difficult emotions), boredom, and mental health issues are among the most common. Our treatment program fights these triggers so your loved one has an increased chance at avoiding relapse.
Aside from strengthening the family support system and giving addicts the skills necessary to manage difficult emotions, The Raleigh House will:
- Recommend local therapists and 12-step programs. This further strengthens your love one’s emotional support group after your drug treatment program is done.
- Work with employers to get the person back to work sooner.This makes something other than drugs a focal point of your loved one’s life.
- Provide nutritional and exercise programs.A proper diet and exercise routine boosts your self-esteem, relieves stress, and fights depression!
