Based on whether reuse is just one time or constant, you can decide to enter into a full rehabilitation program.
It is important to stay positive after a relapse and treat your return to rehab as a setback than a failure. It is important to carry on and consider it as a part of the challenges on your way to total recovery.
Some people attain quickly abstinence almost immediately after their backsliding which is quite conventional in the first few months. A relapse is always dangerous because after you have stopped using the substance, you can be certain that you have lost the tolerance to the substance. You are highly likely to experience side effects, which will be negative or overdose when you begin to use the substances again.
Acknowledgment of the fact of the recent substance abuse should be considered in addition to your safety and health when deciding to back to rehab.
Understanding these statistics is essential and addicts who are starting life afresh all over again are encouraged to protect their sobriety by utilising support services for aftercare and the 12-step programs. Keeping a good sense of awareness in taking the needed steps once you have relapsed is also very helpful.
If the relapse is severe, undergoing rehab is recommended.
The best way to addressing a relapse is to meet your counsellor, apprise him or her about your situation, and make a plan to get back on the recovery track again. Seek support and put the double amount of effort to stay clean. However, if a relapse has occurred, it is extremely important to stop using the substance and obtains help right away.
The factors that determine whether you return to rehab or not include: The duration you have been using alcohol. There are differences between a single slip and a full relapse.
Most times, regression shows that the management needs fine tuning and not that there is total failure of the therapy. The temptation to go back and use alcohol is normal. A relapse often makes their addiction worse than before for the addict. Reinforcement of the drug using habits is promoted by the fact that the user try to detach from his conscience because of disgrace and embarrassment. Withdrawal becomes hard as each day of relapse passes. A relapse is a serious issue, as returning to abusing drugs has severe consequences.
To come out of addiction, continuous effort needs to put.

If you are clearly in a relapse situation, returning to a treatment facility is a no brainer. Enrolling into a treatment program following a relapse ensures you stay away from the drug and can restart recovery.
It will be best to find a centre which is taking a different approach from the one which provided you the treatment initially because the programs vary among the types of treatments offered along with their philosophies, and you also have an opportunity to have access to better results.
Cognitive-behavioural therapy [CBT] is a commonly used mode of therapy to deal with addictions. The factors that cause people to relapse back to the use of alcohol are studied on this program. At the second attempt at rehabilitation, avoidance and harmless feedback to these initiators are discussed.
Addressing the root cause that helped drive the addiction is also one important thing that a CBT can tackle. You could very well have a requirement to find new methods to deal with the stress and explore techniques of relaxation such as deep breathing, meditation and yoga. Each of the aforementioned strategies empowers newly-recovered addicts to hand stress and stressful situations positively, without falling back on alcohol or drugs for support.
Returning to rehab is not a backward step on the road to recovery but a forward step and one which shows your commitment to stay sober. While this is not entirely a bad thing, this is where you make the realization that sobriety is an everyday way of life.
You have picked yourselves before earlier, and you just need to do it all over again.
Having achieved sobriety for some time, drug users show better commitment and stronger intent during their second stint not only in rehab but also after leaving it so that they can remain sober for life. This is the best opportunity to get over your addiction and get clean for the rest of your life.
