Guarding Your Freedom: Mastering Relapse Prevention with PRC Recovery

Aftercare Planning and Relapse Prevention

Alcohol and Drug Rehabilitation in South Africa

 

Relapse is defined as an event, or stimuli that cause an individual in recovery, to resort to the use of a mind-altering substance, following a prolonged period of abstinence. The National Institute of Drug Abuse reports that between 40 – 60 percent of individuals are at risk of relapsing during the first twelve months of recovery. A fundamental function of addiction treatment is promoting long-term recovery through relapse prevention programming, and therefore a continuum of support post-primary rehabilitation treatment is critical to successful recovery.

The aftercare treatment plan answers the need for continued support and is developed as a collaboration between the client, family/loved ones and case management team. Areas explored in the aftercare plan include the following:
