Is Going Back To Rehab Right For Me

What You Need To Know About Recovery

Based on whether reuse is just one time or constant, you can decide to enter into a full rehabilitation program.


The recovery process does not become unsuccessful if you go back to rehab. Don't think of addiction as a problem that can be corrected with a one-time effort; dealing with it is a continuous process.

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.


Staying drug-free should be the primary governing factor when you make the decision of going back or not to rehab.


Understanding these statistics is essential and addicts who are starting life afresh all over again are encouraged to protect their sobriety by utilising support services for aftercare and the 12-step programs. There is absolute relevance for knowledge of adequate and appropriate responses when you regress in order to achieve prolonged sobriety.


When Do I Consider Submitting To Therapy Again

You can be put back to medication if the relapse has caused your addiction to have negative effects on your body.

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. It is imperative that you seek out the support and double your efforts to remain sober. If you have gone deep into the use of alcohol after you had stopped, you can always ask for professional help on how you can start recovering again.


The immediate consideration that you look into in deciding to back to rehab should be the frequency and amount of your substance abuse. It is important for you to be able to keep a good head and identify an isolated case and a relapse.

  • When you use a drug for a small time period, a few hours or a day, it is termed as a slip.
  • It is important that although it happened you are able to recognize that it can be a wick to light up the full blown addiction 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.
  • It is common to notice people isolating themselves, skipping the 12-step program and avoiding their sponsors during a relapse.
