Recovery and Peer Support

Recovery is a long and difficult journey. The recovery process is different for everyone. One thing that is common for everyone is the need for a personalized treatment. No one can get through an addiction alone. Addicts on their way to recovery can experience many different emotions including sadness, anger, doubt, and fear. With time, all of these emotions may become overwhelming. Peer services are available to help addicts in recovery. These services can also help prevent relapse.

The staff from Drug rehab Centers Milford is dedicated to helping addicts in every way possible. They suggest patients join group sessions or specific programs once they have recovered. These programs will allow individuals to connect with others who are experiencing the same problems and struggles as them.

Recovery and Relapse

Rehab can lead addicts down the road to recovery. Just as recovery is possible, relapse is always a possibility which lurks in the darkest moments. It is important to understand that relapse starts out as a process and it does not just happen in a moment’s instance. There are generally three stages of the relapse process which usually happen as follows:

  • Emotional relapse: during this time the user is not thinking about using but his/her emotions are unstable. The user experiences a large array of different emotions including mood swings, isolation, and anger.
  • Mental relapse: during this stage, the user seldom wants to use it. He or she has some thoughts about it but they are very vague. As this stage develops, the user begins to think about using it more often.
  • Physical relapse: during this stage, users will begin deciding about relapse. They will think more about it. From here on relapse begins to really set in. Users will eventually seek out a means to get what they want.

Users are encouraged to learn from their relapse. They can learn to identify their weak points or the areas in their lives that still need improvement. They must remind themselves of why they have chosen to seek sobriety in the first place. Once they have reminded themselves of this, they can recommit to the goal.

You can always reach out to someone for words of encouragement.   Giving into relapse does not make you a failure.
