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.
The process of withdrawing from drugs has not been unsuccessful neither have you failed when you go back to a rehab. You need to be committed to the recovery process which takes quite some time before you can succeed in staying clean.
Some people attain quickly abstinence almost immediately after their backsliding which is quite conventional in the first few months. Adverse reactions and tendency to overuse are quite common when you regress and go off track; this reason is the peril of regression.
Your own wholeness and security is utmost in knowing whether to go back or not to rehabilitation.
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. When it comes to maintaining long-term recovery, it is also incredibly important to understand the responses to a relapse.
When Do I Consider Submitting To Therapy Again
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. You can always stop the use of the drugs. However, if a relapse has occurred, it is extremely important to stop using the substance and obtains help right away.
The duration and severity of alcohol and substance abuse are the main points in assessment of the need to get back into rehabilitation. Total regression can be tell apart from just an isolated goof.
One can use alcohol for a short while and this is defined as a slip.
A momentary lapse of judgment or a slip might make the person realize the risks they would be taking if they continues drug abuse, which in turn helps them stop before returning to the old ways.
A relapse is an entirely different and is a serious event in which the individual returns to a pattern of drug or alcohol abuse, which can last over a period of days or weeks just like they were doing earlier.
You will start skipping sessions with sponsors or counsellors you pull off this disappearing act ever so often as a starter.
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. The temptation to go back and use alcohol is normal. Users get more deeply dependent on the substance than before during regression. 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 road to recovery needs commitment and daily care for a very long time so that the addict does not fall back to addiction.
The idea of having to return to rehab is not preferred by many, but it can possibly save your life. Do you want to start rehabilitation after you have regressed? Contact us immediately.

One important method is to make sure that they g back to a rehab that has complete approach to the one they were in before.
One of the techniques that is being used for such cases is the Cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT). This therapeutic process readies the patient in identifying and responding to the triggers and other psychosocial factors contributing to relapse. 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. Achieving a state of relaxation via meditation, breathing, and other techniques help the patient in dealing with stressors. Once you are out of rehab, doing these things can help you stay clean and avoid the triggers.
