Relapse Prevention Tips
Traveling the road to recovery can take a lifetime. That’s why it’s so important for those who have completed rehab treatment to develop skills for relapse prevention. Trigger avoidance and developing new lifestyle habits are just a few of the tools that graduates of our recovery program use to stay sober. Explore our relapse prevention resources to learn numerous sobriety strategies.
Sober Living Resources
Transitioning back into everyday life can be the hardest part of recovery. That’s why we allow graduates of our primary treatment program to rent a room in our sobriety focused living quarters. We also provide extended life skills training to alumni who need help making the transition back into their old lives.
Illicit Drug Information
Addiction can destroy dreams, careers and families. Thankfully, education about the negative effects of drug abuse can go a long way toward preventing these worst-case scenarios.
Individuals struggling with addiction can benefit from learning more about the long-term consequences of their drug abuse. Likewise, friends and family are better equipped to support loved ones if they are more informed about how illegal substances affect the mind, body and livelihood of a drug user.
Prescription Drug Facts
Many people are unaware of the hazardous side effects prescription drugs can cause. Unfortunately, this false assumption contributes to the nation’s growing prescription drug abuse problem.
Prescription painkillers like OxyContin, for example, are highly addictive narcotics that can lead individuals to physical dependence, especially if misused. Our prescription drug resources examine the most addictive prescription drugs and how to handle them safely.
Alcohol Abuse Information
Alcohol abuse is responsible for tens of thousands of deaths in the United States each year. Awareness and information are critical for preventing friends and family from falling prey to alcoholism. Our alcohol resources offer reliable information on how heavy drinking can affect long-term health and how casual drinking can escalate into full-blown addiction.
Co-Occurring Disorders Information
Treating the medical condition known as addiction becomes even more difficult when a patient has also been diagnosed with co-occurring mental disorder, such as depression or schizophrenia. These individuals, commonly known as dual diagnosis patients, require specialized care as they start their walk down the road to recovery. Our co-occurring disorder resources provide details on the mental disorders most likely to accompany addiction.
