How to Prevent Relapse in Recovery From Addiction 

Addiction is a complex disease that can be difficult to overcome. Many people who achieve sobriety through addiction treatment experience a relapse at some point. This doesn’t mean that recovery is unsuccessful, but it does mean you need to take the necessary steps to prevent a relapse. In this blog post, our team at Blair Wellness Group in Beverly Hills will discuss some of the best ways to prevent relapse in recovery from addiction. Learn more and reach out to our licensed clinical psychologists today.

Be Completely Honest 

The first step in preventing relapse is to be completely honest with yourself. This means acknowledging the risks and triggers that could potentially lead to a relapse and taking steps to address or remove them. If you’re not honest with yourself, it will be difficult to stay sober. 

Practice Self-Care

In order to maintain your sobriety, it’s important to practice self-care; this includes taking care of yourself emotionally and physically. Make sure you’re getting enough sleep, eating a healthy diet, and exercising regularly. It’s also important to take care of your mental health. If you’re struggling, talk to a therapist or other professional about what you can do to feel better.

Know Your Triggers

It’s also important to avoid any triggers that could possibly lead to a relapse. This may mean avoiding certain people, places, or things that remind you of your addiction. If you’re not sure what your triggers are, talk to your therapist or recovery sponsor.

Ask for Help 

If you’re feeling tempted to relapse, don’t hesitate to ask for help. This could mean reaching out to your support network or talking to a therapist. There is no shame in admitting that you need help and seeking assistance when you’re struggling. 

At Blair Wellness Group, we understand the challenges of overcoming addiction. We offer a variety of addiction treatment services, including counseling and medication management. Our licensed clinical psychologists are here to help you stay sober and live a healthy life. Contact us today to learn more.
