On the other hand, it is best to fight the urge once you have gone deep into the habit again and ask for immediate help.

Why Did Treatment Fail The First Time

Relapsing may not be considered as a failure with the treatment rather it is an opportunity for improvement in terms of the commitment in executing the post-rehab plan. It is not difficult to fall back into old habits because it is quite common to respond to cravings, boredom, triggers and doubt. It should be noted that the over dependency on the alcohol or drug becomes more intense if they were on the road to recovery then relapsed. It is the feelings of shame and guilt, which provide for the impetus to drive the substance abusing behaviour with the sole intention to number any uncomfortable emotions. Recovery becomes difficult when the person continues to use a substance regularly. A relapse is a serious issue, as returning to abusing drugs has severe consequences.


The disease of addiction is a lifelong problem, and therefore, it must be controlled actively and managed every day during the recovery.

Undergoing Treatment For The Second Time

If you are clearly in a relapse situation, returning to a treatment facility is a no brainer. It is extremely important to get back into a treatment program fast. The actions taken will immediately cut off the access to the substance and help the individual to regain control over their recovery.

It is suggested that seeking treatment from a different facility this time might be better in order to implement a new regimen that would be more effective.

Dependence is often treated by Cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT). Learning about reactions to some initiators both living and non-living factors that promote the urge to use alcohol and other substances is one of the importance of CBT. People are trained on how they can overcome some of the temptations and avoid relapses.

Regression might have been precipitated by some circumstances and feelings necessitating that you should be able to identify this and apply this knowledge to guard against future occurrence. Stress relief activities like yoga, respiratory exercise and reflection can be done to help manage anxiety. All these practices can provide recovering addicts the help, they need to manage stressful situations after the treatment program has ended.


Using Rehab Again Is Not A Sign Of Failure

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. He or she has realised the dangers of falling back into addiction and valued your life to bring in a positive change. This is the matter which gains importance at this stage.

This should serve as a reminder that although you can be slowed down by distractions, it can never stop you from reclaiming your life and sobriety.

Recuperating users most times have more conviction to make their abstinence longer in their second attempt than their first simply because they have been at that point before. This is the best opportunity to get over your addiction and get clean for the rest of your life.
