Unfortunately, relapse is part of recovery for many people. Sobriety is a decision to abstain from drugs and alcohol that people in addiction recovery face daily. Unfortunately, cravings for drugs and alcohol can become too much to manage, resulting in relapse. This can be discouraging, but it’s important to remember that relapse doesn’t mean you’ve failed or that your drug or alcohol treatment failed. Because relapse is common in the early stages of recovery, Clearbrook Massachusetts offers a stabilization program that helps people who have relapsed get back on their feet.
Our Recovery and Relapse Treatment
Relapse is a common aspect of addiction recovery for many people, especially during the first year of sobriety. Although this isn’t the case for everyone, we never want our alumni to feel as if they’ve failed or have ruined their progress if they relapse. The fact of the matter is that it’s normal for people to come across temptations that seem too strong to stand against. This doesn’t mean there’s anything wrong with you, but rather it’s just a sign that you need improvement in certain areas. Our stabilization program incorporates one-on-one therapy and relapse prevention training to help patients learn why they relapsed and how to avoid it in the future.
Stabilization Center in Massachusetts
At Clearbrook Massachusetts, we want our patients to know that one mistake in their recovery journey does not define the rest of their progress. Our stabilization program for relapse is designed to help you regain your strength, confidence, and control over your sobriety.
While therapy and relapse prevention training are the main focuses of this program, there are other steps within our stabilization plan that can be beneficial but aren’t required. One of these steps is medical detox. This is a form of treatment in which patients are slowly weaned off of drugs and alcohol under medical supervision. One of the most common risks of relapse is overdose. Oftentimes, patients who have been sober for even just a few weeks may overdose because they administer the same dose they once did while they were actively using drugs or drinking. This can intoxicate the body, resulting in an overdose. A medically monitored detox can help patients recover and avoid overdose.
Another step is our residential treatment program. Our inpatient drug rehab in Massachusetts requires patients to live at our facility through the duration of their treatment. Inpatient drug treatment is most beneficial to individuals who need one-on-one time with our team and need to be separated from outside distractions and temptations that can impinge on their progress.
Our stabilization program is a 14-day process that is available to those who have relapsed or require drug detox. After the program is complete, patients can return to their prior form of care or continue their recovery at home.
If you or a loved one has relapsed or is battling a drug or alcohol addiction, Clearbrook Treatment Centers Massachusetts is here to help. Contact us today to learn more about our stabilization program and other levels of substance abuse treatment.
