Having an understanding about whether you need to begin the process of recovery all over again will depend on whether you have reverted back to your old habits or have fully relapsed and are using substances once again regularly.
Going back to rehab in no way indicates that you or the process for the rehab has failed. The journey of addiction has long-lasting effects, and it is essential to act as and when required in order to remain in the path to recovery.
Many people relapse when they just come out of rehab, but a large percentage of them are able to overcome their momentary relapses and stay drug free for life. 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.
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.
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.
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. 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. There are differences between a single slip and a full relapse.
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."
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.
A full relapse is when a user starts using the drug with the same intensity as or greater intensity than before for a considerable length of time.
Avoidance of support system previously put in place like support groups, 12 step meetings and supervisors occur frequently in regression.
Falling into a relapse is not a sign of failure of the treatment plant; it just means the present treatment strategy needs to be recalibrated. Presence of initiators, longings, uninteresting lifestyle and self-disbelief can make one to backslide to previous lifestyle. It should be noted that the over dependency on the alcohol or drug becomes more intense if they were on the road to recovery then relapsed. A relapse is often accompanied by negative emotions, like guilt and low self-esteem, which ironically makes the situation worse because the person uses drugs with greater force to deal with inner turmoil. 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.
To come out of addiction, continuous effort needs to put.

Rehab For The Second Time
The time to visit an alcohol or drug abuse rehab is right away in the event of a relapse. The strict rules and routines in the treatment facility are very helpful in alleviating your urges and symptoms.
One important method is to make sure that they g back to a rehab that has complete approach to the one they were in before.
Cognitive-behavioural therapy [CBT] is a commonly used mode of therapy to deal with addictions. The factors that cause people to relapse back to the use of alcohol are studied on this program. 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.
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. Stress relief activities like yoga, respiratory exercise and reflection can be done to help manage anxiety. After the completion of the rehabilitation, recuperating users benefit immensely from these techniques.
Utilising Rehab For A Second Time Does Not Mean You Failed
Returning to rehab should not be considered as a failure because it is indeed courageous that the individual has decided to opt for the treatment again. This means that a person is really interested in living a clean life and they are ready to do what it takes to achieve that.
You are bound to be successful in your effort to fully recover.
Having achieved sobriety for some time, drug users show better commitment and stronger intent during their second stint not only in rehab but also after leaving it so that they can remain sober for life. Attempting to beat the odds the second time has familiarity and skills at your side.
