Based on whether reuse is just one time or constant, you can decide to enter into a full rehabilitation program.
The recovery process does not become unsuccessful if you go back to rehab. You need to be committed to the recovery process which takes quite some time before you can succeed in staying clean.
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. Adverse reactions and tendency to overuse are quite common when you regress and go off track; this reason is the peril of regression.
Your own wholeness and security is utmost in knowing whether to go back or not to rehabilitation.
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. The time taken for recovery will also be shortened if you can overcome some of the temptations of recovering.
Why Do I Need Treatment Again
You can be put back to medication if the relapse has caused your addiction to have negative effects on your body.
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. Seek support and put the double amount of effort to stay clean. However, if a relapse has occurred, it is extremely important to stop using the substance and obtains 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. The tendency to get back to the use of alcohol tend to different between people.
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."
They try as much as possible no to get addicted again to alcohol.
A relapse is an entirely different and is a serious event in which the individual returns to a pattern of drug or alcohol abuse, which can last over a period of days or weeks just like they were doing earlier.
Avoidance of support system previously put in place like support groups, 12 step meetings and supervisors occur frequently in regression.
Why Treatment Has Not Worked For Me The First Time
A relapse is no indicator that the treatment program has failed, but on the contrary, it simply states that the treatment plan needs to be reinforced or adjusted. Presence of initiators, longings, uninteresting lifestyle and self-disbelief can make one to backslide to previous lifestyle. A relapse often makes their addiction worse than before for the addict. Remorse and shame felt by the patient when relapsing are the same factors pushing him to continue with the abuse. Every single instance of drug use after rehab weakens chances of recovery. A relapse is a serious issue, as returning to abusing drugs has severe consequences.
It takes daily and constant treatment and discipline because dependence is an illness that lasts for years.

Rehab For The Second Time
Rehabilitation from alcohol or other substances should be sought immediately if you regressed. It is extremely important to get back into a treatment program fast. The actions taken will immediately cut off the access to the substance and help the individual to regain control over their recovery.
A more rewarding outcome may be achieved by going to a new facility which schedules and activities differ from your last because different schedules have different management values.
CBT of Cognitive Behavioural Therapy is one of the treatment approaches used to help the patient in dealing with triggers. Learning about reactions to some initiators both living and non-living factors that promote the urge to use alcohol and other substances is one of the importance of CBT. 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.
Taking a look at the events or emotions which may have triggered the relapse and learning how properly to deal about these issues in the future are also extremely important. The possibility of needing newer, better ways to handle stress, like breathing-based meditation and yoga, cannot be ruled out. These are some takeaways that the patient can bring with him once he transitions back to his old normal life before the substance abuse.
It Is Not A Failure If You Start Rehabilitation Again
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. The key takeaway is you understand how dangerous addiction is and how valuable life is to throw it away by continuing drug abuse.
