Addiction can touch anyone’s life, but addiction doesn’t have to be the entire story. Recovery is possible, and the professionals at The Bergrand Group, provide relapse prevention in Baltimore. Relapse can be part of the recovery process, but there are steps that can be taken to prevent relapse. The Bergrand Group works with individuals to keep them on the path to recovery.

What is Relapse?

Understanding relapse is the first step in prevention. Relapse is when an individual returns to the use of drugs or alcohol after a period of non-use. This can occur at any time in the recovery process. Relapse prevention in Baltimore is designed to identify triggers, develop a plan to prevent relapse, and then work to keep you on the road to recovery. In terms of substance abuse, relapse occurs when the individual starts using again, which can lead to serious health issues.

What Triggers Relapse?

Relapse triggers can vary from individual to individual. Some triggers include:

  1. Being at a party or event that serves alcohol or where others are using drugs.
  2. Hanging out with family or friends who are still actively using substances (and who may or may not encourage you to use with them).
  3. Your emotional state can trigger a relapse if you are experiencing a “low” or “high” emotional state.
  4. Visiting places that you associate with past substance use can be a trigger.

How Prevention Strategies Help

Relapse prevention in Baltimore also helps provide the skills and tools necessary to continue recovery. Relapse prevention involves developing healthy coping skills to handle emotional or mental highs and lows without the use of drugs or alcohol.

Some strategies to prevent relapse include:

  1. Trigger Recognition: knowing triggers can help you avoid people or places that may lead to relapse, or provide strategies for when those people or places cannot be avoided.
  2. Support Groups: Joining a support group gives you the opportunity to share helpful tips and have someone to talk to when you need extra support.
  3. Self-care: learning self-care and healthy coping skills can help prevent relapse and improve the overall quality of life.
