Overcoming addiction is an uphill battle. Getting clean is difficult, but a new challenge begins with maintaining newfound sobriety. Relapse Prevention Therapy plays a major role in helping individuals stay clean and sober in recovery. It places emphasis on coping skills training that enables clients to handle high-risk situations and avoid relapse. Coping strategies are critical in teaching clients how to effectively deal with negative emotions and potentially high-risk situations.
Through a variety of cognitive and behavioral techniques, clients will improve their self-awareness and decrease their negative thought patterns. Not only will they learn how to identify their destructive ways of thinking, they also learn how to refrain them into thoughts that are positive, encouraging, and supportive. Relapse Prevention Therapy also guides clients through lifestyle changes that support and enhance recovery.
