It’s well-established that aftercare and support following substance abuse treatment is an essential part of maintaining one’s sobriety and creating a strong foundation for recovery. LICADD’s professional staff can help you or a loved one successfully transition from inpatient treatment back home or into a sober living environment. We’ll help you recognize potential relapse triggers, get connected with a local support system and come up with a comprehensive relapse prevention plan that works for you.
Recovery isn’t a destination; it’s a journey. Similarly, relapse isn’t an event, but a process. Most of those who relapse experience progressive warning signs that slowly but surely lead a person to go back to using drugs and/or alcohol. Most recovering people have never been taught how to identify and manage relapse warning signs, they don’t notice them until the pain becomes severe, and then they revert to old, yet familiar coping strategies. Relapse is common but 100% preventable.
Let LICADD help you maintain your recovery…
