Why I Should Go Back To Rehabilitation after-rehab

Recognising The Road To Staying Clean

There are many reason that can cause someone to choose to go back to the rehab centres.


The process of withdrawing from drugs has not been unsuccessful neither have you failed when you go back to a rehab. You need to be committed to the recovery process which takes quite some time before you can succeed in staying clean.

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. A relapse is always dangerous because after you have stopped using the substance, you can be certain that you have lost the tolerance to the substance. You are highly likely to experience side effects, which will be negative or overdose when you begin to use the substances again.


Health reasons and relapse are the some of the factors that cause people to go back to the rehab facilities.


Because of the high risk of relapse, people just out of rehab are strongly recommended joining support groups, like 12-step program, to stay sober. Keeping a good sense of awareness in taking the needed steps once you have relapsed is also very helpful.


Reasons To Need Treatment Again

If your return to substance abuse has become a d j vu of the old habit then it is imperative to seek help.

The best way to addressing a relapse is to meet your counsellor, apprise him or her about your situation, and make a plan to get back on the recovery track again. You can always stop the use of the drugs. 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. A momentary slip and a complete relapse are not the same thing.

  • A short-lived event which is usually only for a day when the substance is used for a brief period is identified 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.
  • A relapse is an entirely different and is a serious event in which the individual returns to a pattern of drug or alcohol abuse, which can last over a period of days or weeks just like they were doing earlier.
  • This is the time people start skipping meetings and try to keep away from the other members of the support groups.

Why The First Treatment Failed For Me

Relapsing may not be considered as a failure with the treatment rather it is an opportunity for improvement in terms of the commitment in executing the post-rehab plan. It is not difficult to fall back into old habits because it is quite common to respond to cravings, boredom, triggers and doubt. A relapse often makes their addiction worse than before for the addict. 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. It becomes harder to stop the more the user indulges in the act of using. A relapse must be considered seriously because a return to drug, and alcohol abuse can have dangerous or even fatal consequences.


It takes daily and constant treatment and discipline because dependence is an illness that lasts for years.

Rehab For The Second Time

If you are clearly in a relapse situation, returning to a treatment facility is a no brainer. It is extremely important to get back into a treatment program fast. The actions taken will immediately cut off the access to the substance and help the individual to regain control over their recovery.

A more rewarding outcome may be achieved by going to a new facility which schedules and activities differ from your last because different schedules have different management values.

Dependence is often treated by Cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT). CBT is highly beneficial when trying to understand how an individual responds to certain triggers or people, places and things that can fuel their desire to begin using drugs or alcohol. During a return visit to a rehab information about how people can respond differently to these triggers and how to avoid them completely is something that can be learned and can also be worked upon.

Addressing the root cause that helped drive the addiction is also one important thing that a CBT can tackle. Achieving a state of relaxation via meditation, breathing, and other techniques help the patient in dealing with stressors. After the completion of the rehabilitation, recuperating users benefit immensely from these techniques.
