Relapse Prevention

As with any drug or alcohol rehab program, relapse prevention is an essential piece of the puzzle.  In order to maintain long-term sobriety and combat the temptations associated with being in recovery, Chapters Capistrano understands that it is necessary to plan for and have a certain level of discipline when working to establish a successful relapse prevention program.

Our trained and experienced counselors understand that there are various signs that can indicate a pending relapse in the life of a recovering addict.  High quality relapse prevention programs will teach individuals how to recognize and identify the warning signs associated with relapse for themselves and provide the tools to prevent this from happening.  Chapters believes the following requirements are key to a solid relapse prevention curriculum:

  • Open-mindedness
  • Willingness
  • Honesty

Moreover, implementing a good relapse prevention program means that a person in recovery is able to make an honest list of thoughts, actions, and activities that could trigger a relapse.  However, knowing what to do when a trigger experience is faced is a key part of successfully avoiding a relapse. Our counselors have the ability to teach you the skills needed in attaining long-term sobriety.

What are Some Relapse Triggers

Just as no two people are alike in their addiction, relapse triggers also vary person-by-person.  Some common relapse triggers include:

  • Emotional events such as divorce and the death of a loved one
  • Financial struggles
  • Expecting too much from other people
  • Complacency
  • Self-Pity
  • Impatience
  • Exhaustion
  • Over confidence in one’s ability to stay sober
  • Depression

Relapse prevention is the most important part of the addiction recovery process and maintaining sobriety is integral to the long-term health and happiness of the individual in early recovery.
