AFTER CARE SERVICES

 
AFTER CARE SERVICES

In some ways, the hardest part of establishing and maintaining long-term recovery comes when the initial, intensive part of treatment has been completed.

To avoid relapse, most recovering people need to be in the warm embrace of loved ones – whether their close, biological family or the new “family” of other recovered people that they can turn to when they feel in danger of relapse.

These factors are not so different from the variables that affect relapse when dealing with other chronic disorders, such as

  • diabetes
  • failing to stick to diet, medications, or behavior change
  • poverty
  • poor support from family members
  • a co-occurring mental health disorder
One study identified the five factors that most often contribute to relapse:
  • Inability to manage stress or negative emotional states
  • Interpersonal conflicts with family or others
  • Failing to stick to the recommendations of doctors and counselors
  • Negative thinking
  • Low motivation to change
Among other things, addicted people must learn how to avoid contact with the triggers that may set in motion their brain’s demanding cry for drugs or alcohol. And when those triggers are unavoidable, people must develop the skills that will prevent the craving from taking over. Learning these skills must be a core element of any treatment program; maintaining them should be part of an aftercare program or long-term recovery plan.
