Recognizing the Signs of Drug Relapse Post Drug Treatment

If you have already completed drug treatment or if someone you love has completed treatment at a treatment center then you probably think that things are perfect, on the right track and can never go back to what they were. Unfortunately, if you aren’t ready to recognize the early warning signs of drug relapse after an addict completes treatment then the chances of relapse occurring can increase ten fold and the end result can be very difficult to fathom. The warning signs of drug relapse are not always easy to recognize but having a firm understanding of what to look out for can provide you with a better chance of seeing the signs before it’s too late.

Feeling Trapped or Alone Post Treatment

Treatment centers and the skilled professionals at these centers provide you with the support and counseling you need as well as peer interaction to help you overcome feelings of being trapped inside yourself or your addiction. If after you have completed treatment you realize that you (or that someone you love) is feeling like they are trapped, overwhelmed or otherwise unable to cope then you (or that person) could be at a risk of potential relapse. Don’t let overwhelming feelings take control of you and cause you to use drugs again, seek help. Treatment centers can help you overcome feelings of being trapped or overwhelmed to help prevent you from relapsing after you have already completed treatment.

Depression, Anxiety or Other Mental Condition

Depression gets in the way of sobriety for thousands of people and anxiety is right there with it. If you or someone you love has completed a treatment center program and is now sober, depression or anxiety that seems to be growing is a sure sign that there’s a problem. Relapse can be prevented when the signs are recognized early on so it’s important to recognize feelings of depression that don’t go away, suicidal thoughts or times of high anxiety that could result in or trigger drug or alcohol use. Treatment centers can help you but only if you contact someone when you realize that you are suffering from depression or anxiety and seek help.

Crisis, It’s Unavoidable but Relapse Can be Avoided

Crisis strikes thousands or even millions of people and we all deal with it in a different way. Many people cope with crisis by using drugs or drinking alcohol, especially a recovering addict. If you have suffered a crisis such as a death in the family, the loss of a job, a car accident or illness, consider seeking help at a treatment center before the crisis results in you relapsing and using drugs again. Crisis is often unavoidable and may not be able to be prevented but you can prevent relapse by getting help when you need it and treatment centers can provide you with the support, guidance and care that you need—even during or after a crisis has struck.

Relapse – You Can’t Deny It

If you or someone you love has successfully completed drug treatment and is now showing signs of denial then there’s a distinct possibility that help is needed and it’s needed fast. Denial is one of the number one signs of drug relapse and can signify that a problem has already occurred. You can’t deny relapse. If you have relapsed and started using drugs or alcohol again, it’s important that you don’t deny the truth and you get back on track to recovery as quickly as possible. The quicker you return to your recovery efforts the better you chances will be of maintaining lasting sobriety.
