In my video below I’m inviting you to a new training titled “Taking the Mystery our of Relapse” that I will be conducting on March 8, 2013 at our Grinstead Treatment and Training Facility. Please watch the video below and then read the remainder of this post for more information and how to register.
Research states that the incidence of relapse is as high as 60% or more. Historically, many people who are committed to a life of recovery nevertheless exhibit significant self-defeating patterns of behavior that if left unchecked can eventually lead to relapse. Many treatment providers see clients who have been through treatment before—often many times before—who when they leave treatment stay clean and sober for a period of time but end up relapsing yet again. A return to denial is always the first stage of any relapse process that at first has nothing to do with alcohol or other drugs.
Clinicians will learn how to educate their clients about the progressive nature of relapse and more importantly how to identify and manage the warning signs, including high risk situations that can steal their sobriety. They will learn how to teach their clients to identify and stop the relapse cycle—recognizing that relapse is a process not an event. They will learn to identify and manage the different self-defeating defense patterns that lead from stable recovery to becoming dysfunctional in recovery and eventually using alcohol or other drugs. Most importantly, participants will leave this training being able to immediately help their clients develop a recovery plan designed to identify and manage future relapse episodes.
