When it comes to substance abuse, some women may look at relapse statistics and feel as though recovery is hopeless. However, with the right substance abuse treatment, many of them do find lasting recovery. The Willows at Red Oak Recovery® teaches women the tools to successfully handle triggers and equips women with the skills to live, full enriching lives.
WHAT HAPPENS WITHOUT AN EFFECTIVE RELAPSE PREVENTION PLAN?
Many women believe they have the willpower to achieve sobriety without drug and alcohol abuse treatment. Keep in mind, however, that addiction is more than just a debilitating physical feeling. It is a disease that attacks a woman’s mental health and spirituality as well. Many women who struggle with addiction do not understand how powerful the disease is. For them to fully embrace recovery, they need comprehensive strategies to navigate everyday life. Relapse prevention education provides women with a game plan to do just that.
WHAT GOES INTO RELAPSE PREVENTION PLANNING AT THE WILLOWS?
The clinical professionals at The Willows work with women to help them develop an effective relapse prevention plan. Part of developing that plan involves discovering what might trigger a relapse in the first place. For instance, stress is a leading contributor to relapse for many women. Instead of using substances to manage stress, our professionals may introduce other relaxation techniques, such as meditation or exercise. These activities not only replace idle time, but they also help women develop coping skills that will prove useful long after treatment.
During treatment, it is also important for women to work on their communication skills. Addiction can feel like an isolating disease, and women may be used to bottling up their feelings in order to cope. Clients are taught how to express their feelings, thoughts, and needs in healthy and positive ways.
