Your drug and alcohol addiction took time to get as bad as it did. For that reason, you shouldn’t expect to cure it overnight. That means that a lot of people relapse at least once along the way to getting clean and sober. Of course, relapse doesn’t HAVE TO be part of recovery. There are plenty of people who get it right on the first try. But if relapse is part of your story, you don’t have to be ashamed, and you definitely don’t have to be hopeless. Recovery is still possible for anyone, especially if you opt for rehab after relapse.
If you’ve relapsed, the first thing you need to do is to get safe right away. That means removing yourself from the environment that set you down the road of addiction again, and getting into a place where you’ll be supported and protected.
Next, you need to get your health straight. Professional detox will help your body clear out the drugs or alcohol from your system and get your chemistry back to what it was before you slipped.
Just putting the drugs and alcohol down again isn’t enough to keep you on the straight and narrow this time around, though. You need to heal whatever is underneath your addiction: trauma, mental and behavioral health issues, or chemical imbalances.
At a residential treatment center, commonly known as drug and alcohol rehab, you can heal from the physical, emotional, and spiritual issues related to addiction. At Transformations Care, for example, you might try art therapy, process groups, or one-on-one counseling. Our intimate setting means our staff will get to know you and create a plan specifically targeted to work for you.
If you don’t change anything, nothing changes. You need to try something different to truly break the cycle of relapse.
Are you ready to try residential treatment? Call our team today for a no-pressure conversation about what that might look like for you.
In the meantime, stay safe and keep trying. Don’t ever give up on trying to get clean and sober.
Getting Clean & Sober at Home
Today, more than 75% of hospitals and healthcare providers offer access to telehealth treatment, with 29 states having gone so far as to enact telehealth parity laws, which force insurance companies to reimburse patients for telehealth at the same rates as they would for in-person treatment.
If you’ve been thinking about getting clean and sober, or if you’ve been wanting to work on and strengthen the recovery you already have, it’s never been easier to do it through telehealth.
