Is Going Back To Rehab Right For Me

Knowledge Of Your Recovery Journey

Having an understanding about whether you need to begin the process of recovery all over again will depend on whether you have reverted back to your old habits or have fully relapsed and are using substances once again regularly.


Going back to rehab in no way indicates that you or the process for the rehab has failed. The journey of addiction has long-lasting effects, and it is essential to act as and when required in order to remain in the path to recovery.

Relapsing soon after coming out from the treatment centre is not uncommon and the chance of recouping in rehab after it is high. Adverse reactions and tendency to overuse are quite common when you regress and go off track; this reason is the peril of regression.


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. There is absolute relevance for knowledge of adequate and appropriate responses when you regress in order to achieve prolonged sobriety.


When Do I Consider Submitting To Therapy Again

If your return to substance abuse has become a d j vu of the old habit then it is imperative to seek help.

You can however recollect yourself and go back to attending the meetings after you had slipped and started using the drugs for a while. It is imperative that you seek out the support and double your efforts to remain sober. Halt the use immediately and contact those that will guide you once regression has occurred.


The immediate consideration that you look into in deciding to back to rehab should be the frequency and amount of your substance abuse. A momentary slip and a complete relapse are not the same thing.

  • A momentary weakness or an instance of use can be considered as an isolated case.
  • Before total regression, awareness of the impending danger enable the user to stop in a slip.
  • A full relapse is when a user starts using the drug with the same intensity as or greater intensity than before for a considerable length of time.
  • You will start skipping sessions with sponsors or counsellors you pull off this disappearing act ever so often as a starter.

Why The First Treatment Failed For Me

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. Presence of initiators, longings, uninteresting lifestyle and self-disbelief can make one to backslide to previous lifestyle. 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. Every single instance of drug use after rehab weakens chances of recovery. The results of a relapse are usually very catastrophic.


The road to recovery needs commitment and daily care for a very long time so that the addict does not fall back to addiction.

Sometimes it is the best decision to go back to the rehab facility and continue with your medication. We are more than willing to help you find the best options for your therapy, so contact us today.


Round Two Of Rehabilitation

A patient need to check back to the facility if they have slipped or gone back to the use of alcohol. One can get back to the recovery process quickly if they return to the rehab soon after a relapse.

Different programs have different treatment methodologies and that's why you might benefit from enrolling into a different program than the previous one.

CBT of Cognitive Behavioural Therapy is one of the treatment approaches used to help the patient in dealing with triggers. 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.

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. Mind reflections and regular exercises are some of the ways that you can overcome these temptations. All these practices can provide recovering addicts the help, they need to manage stressful situations after the treatment program has ended.


Returning To Rehab Is Not An Admission Of Failure

It takes commitment for someone to go back to the rehab after a relapse and such efforts need to be commended. Knowing the problems associated with relapse and loving yourself enough to live healthy are very important.

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. To accomplish a sustained abstinence, re-doing rehabilitation after regression is recommendable.
