Relapse Prevention Programs for Drug & Alcohol Addiction in Colorado

Relapse prevention can be defined as the methods the recovering addict uses to prevent a relapse back to drugs or alcohol, or other types of addiction. Within any drug or alcohol treatment program in Colorado, you will learn relapse prevention techniques, and much of this has to do with recognizing triggers. Most addicts relapse because of some type of emotional or physical trigger, which can be avoided if you apply what you have learned out of treatment. Through the counseling process, you can recognize these triggers, and eliminate them from your life. Unfortunately, the National Institute on Drug Abuse reports that roughly 40 to 60% of recovering addicts will relapse. Relapse prevention includes every step and method you use to ensure your sobriety. For example, this could be moving to a different part of Colorado or disconnecting from old drug-using friends. Whatever you end up doing; you must realize your decisions will decide whether or not you remain drug and alcohol-free.
