Why Drug Relapse Happens and How to Prevent It

Why Drug relapse Happens and How to Prevent it Resurgence Behavioral Health

Understanding Drug Relapse

Before you can understand the nature of drug relapse or why drug relapse happens, it’s critical that you first understand that addiction is a disease that no person ever asks for or wants. No one ever consumes their first drug with the intention that this is going to be a substance that plagues them for the rest of their life. When relapse happens, it’s not a result of a person not wanting to be sober. It’s a result of their disease attempting to take control over their life again.

Why Does Drug Relapse Happen?

Drug relapse can happen for a multitude of reasons. For example, there are certain physical and emotional triggers that a person may experience that can lead to relapse. If you live in an environment that doesn’t support your sobriety or if you interact with people that are struggling with their own active addiction, there is a strong possibility that you may fall back into your own addictive ways.  

How to Prevent a Relapse

The best way to prevent relapse is to receive the addiction treatment and care that you need from professionals. Overcoming your addiction is not something that you need to do on your own. During your time in active addiction, you may have felt like there was no one else in the world that understood how you were feeling. However, when you work with the Resurgence Behavioral Health team, you have an abundance of people at your disposal who are ready and willing to help you when you’re ready to make this commitment.

Getting Help for a Loved One Dealing with Addiction

As addiction professionals with years of experience, we understand the fact that addiction isn’t a disease that impacts just one person. Instead, it’s something that can affect your entire family. This is just one of the reasons why we’re always happy to take the time to speak to friends or family members regarding a loved one that is struggling with addiction. It’s important to remember that you cannot remove the impact of addiction from your life. However, we can teach you certain tools or provide you with insight that can help you to remain focused on helping your loved ones or providing them with options so that they can get the help and care that they need.

What to Do if a Relapse Happens

If you experience a relapse, the first thing that you should do is reach out for help. Unfortunately, many people experience a deep sense of shame and regret around their relapse and they may feel as though no one else understands these feelings or will be willing to help them again. When you work with the Resurgence Behavioral Health team, however, we always make ourselves available to help you. Although relapse is never an event that a person wants, we understand that it is something that happens which is why we commit ourselves to never judging our clients at any time during their treatment.
