Do I Need To Go Back To Rehab after-rehab

Knowledge Of Your Recovery Journey

Your current status determines if you should undergo rehab again, for instance if you've had a momentary lapse of control, just one-off slip, you probably don't need to go back to rehab, but if you're back to using drugs regularly, the answer is yes.


Going back to rehab in no way indicates that you or the process for the rehab has failed. It is important to carry on and consider it as a part of the challenges on your way to total 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. The effects of alcohol can be severe when you stop and go back to the use again.


Acknowledgment of the fact of the recent substance abuse should be considered in addition to your safety and health when deciding to back to rehab.


Putting these facts into consideration, group support therapy and strong after treatment social backing have been incorporated into management plan for the reassurance of the fresh recuperating abusers. Keeping a good sense of awareness in taking the needed steps once you have relapsed is also very helpful.


Why Do I Need Treatment Again

If the relapse is severe, undergoing rehab is recommended.

If a slip occurs it is very vital that you open up to your sponsor or counsellor so you can be offered assistance in coping. It is imperative that you seek out the support and double your efforts to remain sober. In case of a relapse, seek help right away.


The duration and severity of alcohol and substance abuse are the main points in assessment of the need to get back into rehabilitation. Total regression can be tell apart from just an isolated goof.

  • A momentary weakness or an instance of use can be considered as an isolated case.
  • When a slip happens, the person understands the risk he or she may have taken and stops using the substance before sliding back into an addiction all over again.
  • There are some people that get back to full use of alcohol and this is what is known as a relapse which has far more consequences that a slip.
  • Avoidance of support system previously put in place like support groups, 12 step meetings and supervisors occur frequently in regression.

Why Treatment Did Not Work For Me The First Time

A relapse is no indicator that the treatment program has failed, but on the contrary, it simply states that the treatment plan needs to be reinforced or adjusted. Relapse is really just a looming shadow waiting for the chance opened up by your weakness and indiscretion. Sometimes, a user starts using the drug more intensely in a relapse than before. Reinforcement of the drug using habits is promoted by the fact that the user try to detach from his conscience because of disgrace and embarrassment. These feelings along with other factors contribute to a more challenging predicament that the patient undergoes. A relapse must be considered seriously because a return to drug, and alcohol abuse can have dangerous or even fatal consequences.


The disease of addiction is a lifelong problem, and therefore, it must be controlled actively and managed every day during the recovery.

The idea of having to return to rehab is not preferred by many, but it can possibly save your life. Do you want to start rehabilitation after you have regressed? Contact us immediately.


Round Two Of Rehabilitation

A patient need to check back to the facility if they have slipped or gone back to the use of alcohol. One can get back to the recovery process quickly if they return to the rehab soon after a relapse.

It is suggested that seeking treatment from a different facility this time might be better in order to implement a new regimen that would be more effective.

CBT of Cognitive Behavioural Therapy is one of the treatment approaches used to help the patient in dealing with triggers. This therapeutic process readies the patient in identifying and responding to the triggers and other psychosocial factors contributing to relapse. During your second rehab you can learn ways to dodge and handle triggers.

Regression might have been precipitated by some circumstances and feelings necessitating that you should be able to identify this and apply this knowledge to guard against future occurrence. The possibility of needing newer, better ways to handle stress, like breathing-based meditation and yoga, cannot be ruled out. After the completion of the rehabilitation, recuperating users benefit immensely from these techniques.
