Aftercare is just as important as alcohol and drug interventions and detox treatments, because recovery is an ongoing process.

What to do if you are at risk of relapsing?

At Delamere, we can support you if you do relapse, or feel close to returning to addictive behaviours. If you notice some of the common warning signs of a potential relapse, take action quickly and call us so we can help.

We know that life is full of ups and downs, meaning you don’t need to feel alone should you return to active addiction. We urge you not to feel ashamed or feel like you have failed in some way. There are common triggers and reasons for relapsing that are shared by many in the illness of addiction, which can be helpful to be aware of for preventative measures.

How to recover from a rejection of recovery principles

Dealing with relapse in recovery is a joint effort. We will work with you to review your aftercare treatment and recovery plan, and take a more detailed look at your own circumstances. This includes looking at how a return to active addiction happened, the key triggers, and then integrating further coping strategies into your aftercare.

We believe that these situations can be learned from. Your recovery can become stronger than ever with help and support from the team at Delamere.

Regardless of whether you have had a single ‘slip’ or you are no longer in active recovery – the key difference being the intention behind your use of alcohol or drugs – we are always here to help. Our recovery renewal retreats are designed to help you kickstart your recovery once more, helping you to overcome the relapse or slip.

How does a relapse happen?

We have put together some resources all about the potential of returning to addictive behaviours, should these be helpful to you whether now or in the future. A good place to start is to find out what it actually means to relapse, before reading more about the stages of drug or alcohol relapse, and the relapse/recovery cycle which we explain in a way that is easy to understand.

If you are here to find some information for a friend, family member or work colleague who may require support, you may find our article ‘How to help an addict who has relapsed’ to be a worthwhile read, as well as learning more about how often people may relapse in their recovery.
