Relapse Recovery Program
The Relapse Recovery program is specifically designed for individuals who have recently relapsed. Our medical and clinical team provide a short-term (approximately 2-weeks), inpatient residential stay to help you hit the reset button on your recovery.
This is a highly focused recovery program. The short residential treatment program is for people who have been through treatment before. Throughout the Relapse Recovery Program, you will deep dive into the core of the situation that caused the relapse. Our staff will work with you to help work through how to better prepare yourself for “living life on life’s terms.” If you were working a recovery program prior to the relapse, we’ll help you get back on track. For those who haven’t been working a program, our staff will develop an individualized plan for you to stay the course with your sobriety.
Relapse is a Part of Alcohol and Drug Addiction Recovery
Everyone has a different recovery path. The one similarity you may find with your recovery and others in recovery is that they’ve encountered relapse too. At Stepping Stone Center for Recovery, we don’t judge. We know and understand it is part of many peoples’ recovery process. You may feel embarrassed or ashamed for faltering. Don’t. You haven’t failed. It’s really the opposite, you learned what doesn’t work so you can begin to understand, plan, and be prepared for future life events. Our licensed medical staff and master’s level clinicians can help you get back to recovery with a short-stay to brush up on fundamental recovery skills. You’ll deep dive into what lead to the relapse, underlying issues you may need to take another look at, and revive your coping skills. The treatment team will also provide you with a comprehensive aftercare plan that is tailored to your personal needs that will act as a step-by-step guide for next steps to sustain sobriety. Beyond that, you’ll have continued access to a robust alumni community and a Certified Recovery Coach.
Components of the Relapse Recovery Program
For the duration of your residential care stay, which is typically about two weeks, you will participate in group therapy with a focus on relapse recovery, 12-step groups, and expressive therapies. You’ll have medical and psychiatric appointments as needed. Since you’re likely not experiencing any withdrawals, it’s atypical you’d need to spend any of your time in medical detox.
You will stay on-site in home-like, semi-private rooms and nutritious meals and snacks prepared by our full-time chef and dietary team.
The entire facility is only 29 beds. Within the Relapse Recovery Program, you’ll be part of an even smaller community that is conducive to engaging in productive and meaningful connections with staff and peers.
Medication-assisted treatment (MAT) is available during the treatment process and appropriate referrals for continued MAT will be provided, as directed.
An individualized, comprehensive aftercare plan will be provided with everything you’ll need to continue sobriety after discharge. A Certified Recovery Coach and vibrant alumni community will be available to you for as long as you need.
Relapse Recovery Curriculum
Group psychotherapy is useful in addiction recovery because you can be honest and open with others who have been through experiences similar to your own. Being in groups of people with shared experiences is helpful in reminding you that you are not alone in your struggles. It is a safe space to express worries, frustrations, and share coping strategies. The Relapse Recovery curriculum brings people together to discuss:
- The Relapse Process
- Asking for Help
- Triggers, Cravings, and Coping Skills
- Challenges and Rewards in Early Recovery
- Relapse Warning Signs
- Character Defects
- Life in Recovery
- Developing Your Relapse Prevention Plan
What is a Relapse?
A relapse is returning to a substance or behavior that you have previously stopped. Common factors associated with relapse are:
- Not knowing warning signs
- Lack of coping skills
- Lack of understanding of triggers and cravings
- Limited support network
- Difficulty balancing life after treatment
Relapse does not start only when you use alcohol or drugs. Relapse is the end result of events that started days, weeks, or even months before. Therefore, relapse can be described as a process and not just an event.
If the above definition resonates with you, we can help. The expert staff at Stepping Stone Center for Recovery are ready to help you get back on track with recovery. Our admissions team is available 24/7 to complete a confidential assessment or simply answer your questions. We are here when you are ready to pick up the reigns for your recovery.
