If users are not prepared for it, this process can be very dangerous. BLANK
However, it is critical for them to understand that the process of learning still continues because a number of tough challenges which they will be required to encounter. Getting ready to get back to living their lives is the most important part about a stay in a rehab center. The patient has to be ready to deal with the fact that the circumstances that led to the initial addiction may still be waiting. The key to make a successful transition is adequate preparation. BLANK
Patients are kept from anything that can tempt them and the focus is to help them in overcoming their addiction. Leaving rehab means that the excellent conditions which supported abstinence will not be there any more. Rehab has a lot of benefits and one of the best things about it is the availability of adequate support. Negative thoughts can take control at any time of the day or night, but there is always somebody to discuss with. Once you go back home, this kind of support is not commonly available. Family members and friends will react differently to the individual who is returning from Rehab.
Some might still be upset about previous mistakes, while others might doubt that abstinence is possible. Friends that you used to abuse drugs or alcohol with and are still using may have the most negative effect. A person that has overcome an addiction might be influenced by them to start using again.

Things will keep on happening even when you overcome your addiction. There are certain things that you'll have to contend with in life. The individual will need to develop better coping skills in order to deal with these challenges. Getting to an especially low point in life is what usually drives most people into rehab.
Many ripples may still be caused due to the ramifications of this rock bottom. This may mean that people may still have to face the consequences of their bad behavior when they leave rehab. BLANK
Those who do their best while in rehab will usually put in a significant amount of effort. It is similar to a boxer who has prepared for the most important fight for their lives. They have to utilise the resource that they have, not just train hard in the gym. Before the start of the event, the athlete may feel a bit nervous but this is only natural and shows that they understand the immensity of the challenge ahead. People should feel more motivated to prepare for the change especially if they believe they'll be nervous when the time comes.
They will carefully consider the challenges they are likely to face and plan for how they will deal with these with the help of the rehab team, and other clients. Boxers are known mentally to visualise their opponents with the objective of planning a strategy for the fight. BLANK
The first few weeks are especially dangerous since the person is still in transition. The risk of relapse declines once the people become established in their recovery, but it never completely goes away. Going through rehab and then falling into relapse is very annoying for the patient and their family and friends.
Another opportunity to get clean will not always come. Finding the drive to try and quit again can be a challenge to most addicts. Relapse could therefore unfortunately mean death to the addict. Situations that caused addicts to go to treatment will reoccur if they relapse and that will certainly be sorry for it. Because the person has already known what it's like to be clean, they may feel a lot worse than before. An understanding of how relapse occurs needs to develop by the people in the rehab.
Relapsing isn't something that will just happen. There is usually a process that will lead them back to this stage. By gaining a proper understanding of the process leading to relapse, people can take the right measures to avoid it. Being aware of triggers that cause relapse will help them know what situations and behaviors to avoid. BLANK
It is very risky when a person leaves rehab with a conviction that all their troubles are now over. It means that they are not ready for the challenges that are ahead. Although being positive about your future prospects is a good thing, becoming complacent because of that isn't. Hard days will come and if people are not ready for them it can spell catastrophe. It is important to think about Care after Rehab Being in the company of former drug using or drinking pals for extended periods could prove to be a serious mistake.
There is a proverb that gets used a lot in AA that says that if you are at a barber shop for long enough, you will get a haircut at some point. This simply means that those who choose to stick around tempting surroundings will eventually succumb and relapse. They can easily slide back into addiction if they continue spending time with old friends who are dealing with a similar problem. It is not going to be enough if someone has only given up alcohol or drugs and has not applied any other changes.
Those who become dependent tend to have poor coping skills for dealing with life. By continuing to deal with life as they have always done in the past, this attitude will eventually get them into trouble. Simply giving up alcohol and nothing else only means that you've become a dry drunk. Despite managing to avoid a relapse, they will still be susceptible to leading poor-quality lives in recovery. You have to start a whole new life if you want to fully embrace sobriety. Getting sober should cause happiness with former addicts.
It should provide a brighter future and it is a great success. Occasionally people in early recovery can become extremely excited with their progress and lose touch with reality and the term given for this phenomenon is known as the Pink Cloud Syndrome. It just sounds like everything in life is perfect with no dark clouds hanging over the horizon. The problem here is that the individual can feel so good that they become convinced that all their problems are solved. That means that these individuals will feel severely hard consequences when something wrong happens, and it always does. Those who expect too much of themselves will also have a tough time when they go back home.
The demolition caused by addiction does not happen overnight and neither does the repair process. Time is needed for things to improve. Do not expect immediate forgiveness and forgetting from your loved ones and you should also be ready to commit some time and do some work in rebuilding your reputation. You may be bitterly disappointed in you expect too much too soon. Taking on too many challenges at once is another usual error that people make.
It is similar to trying to fix all problems within their lives in a single week. Former addicts are still very sensitive during the first few years of recovery when they regain their composure, so it is significant to take things slowly. Sometimes people slip during their first few weeks at home.
They begin using alcohol or drugs and also instantly begin to regret it. These individuals feel that they have failed themselves and this is actually the case. Slips don't necessarily lead to a complete relapse, but they need to be taken seriously. If the individual decides to get back into recovery right away the consequences to their behaviour will be limited. The important thing is that the causes of slip are examined by the individual and he learns from it.
