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.
It does not signify personal or method failure when one goes back to rehabilitation. 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.
Recovery is a challenging process as some people tend to go back to the use of alcohol and drugs just after getting out of the rehab. A relapse is always dangerous because after you have stopped using the substance, you can be certain that you have lost the tolerance to the substance. You are highly likely to experience side effects, which will be negative or overdose when you begin to use the substances again.
Health reasons and relapse are the some of the factors that cause people to go back to the rehab facilities.
Because of the high risk of relapse, people just out of rehab are strongly recommended joining support groups, like 12-step program, to stay sober. The time taken for recovery will also be shortened if you can overcome some of the temptations of recovering.
Why Do I Need Treatment Again
If your return to substance abuse has become a d j vu of the old habit then it is imperative to seek help.
In the event of a slip, you can easily get back on the right path by having a meeting and discussing the slip with a sponsor or a counsellor to avoid the triggers. Acknowledgment of the event is key so you can start in enlisting the help and support to avoid another instance from happening. Halt the use immediately and contact those that will guide you once regression has occurred.
Two methods can be used to determine whether you are a fit case for a rehab again. The duration of your drug or alcohol abuse and the intensity will need to be evaluated in the determination to be completed. It is important for you to be able to keep a good head and identify an isolated case and a relapse.
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 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.
Avoidance of support system previously put in place like support groups, 12 step meetings and supervisors occur frequently in regression.
Falling into a relapse is not a sign of failure of the treatment plant; it just means the present treatment strategy needs to be recalibrated. 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. Withdrawal becomes hard as each day of relapse passes. Relapse could lead to a more serious situation for the patient hence sufficient effort and attention should be given to bounce back asap.
One should be able to acknowledge that sobriety becomes a daily way of life coming out from the treatment facility.

Round Two Of Rehabilitation

It will be best to find a centre which is taking a different approach from the one which provided you the treatment initially because the programs vary among the types of treatments offered along with their philosophies, and you also have an opportunity to have access to better results.
No other therapy is so widely and successfully used to treat addiction than cognitive behavioural therapy. CBT is highly beneficial when trying to understand how an individual responds to certain triggers or people, places and things that can fuel their desire to begin using drugs or alcohol. At the second attempt at rehabilitation, avoidance and harmless feedback to these initiators are discussed.
Identifying underlying emotions or events that have caused you to relapse is important to prevent any future relapse. 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.
