Relapse Prevention


Hopes Gate addresses one of the most important barriers to a lifelong recovery: relapse. Fortunately, there are plenty of warning signs that give the recovering addict a chance to maintain his or her new-found health. Relapse is a process; it is not an overnight fall from grace. The red flags are similiar in almost every kind of drug or alcohol abuse and can be identified and treated.

There are both conscious and unconscious forms of denial that trigger the descent into relapse. There are emotional, mental and physical components at work that form a snowball effect. Symptoms accumulate and grow into a powerful force that overwhelms and ultimately destroys the hard work that the individual has done to achieve a new life. The addict begins to pull away from solid, encouraging relationships and starts to form new ones or isolates themselves.  Family, friends, and therapists might notice anxiety and irritability, anger and defensiveness, along with mood swings, poor eating habits of the relapsing person.

In this early stage, Hopes Gate provides multiple therapy techniques, encouraging the client to address the unfolding symptoms and gently redirects him/her back onto the path of recovery. This program is the key to freedom from addiction. There are ways to halt the replapse and Hopes Gate can help.
