Relapse – a term feared by many individuals who are both dealing with or affected by addiction. However, by understanding that relapse is a process and not an overnight event, it becomes clear that relapse prevention is entirely possible.
The common consensus is that relapse is a normal part of the recovery process, especially during early stages.
This may be true, but it also does not have to be inevitable. The reason we work hard with those in recovery to avoid relapsing, is because the potential effects can be severe.
For many years addiction was seen as an addict’s weakness or personal choice.
Sadly, there are still rehabilitation centres, some local, that refuse to acknowledge the years of careful research verifying that addiction is a chronic disease.
As with any chronic illness/disease (diabetes, asthma, high blood pressure) the threat of relapsing back into addiction will always exist.
