Relapse describes the process where a former addict now in recovery chooses to revert back to his or her addictive behavior. When relapse is likely to occur a number of changes in the recovered addict’s behavior will take place. The first step towards relapse has been termed emotional relapse.

Early signs of relapse


Signs of emotional relapse include:

Detrimental changes in eating habits Sleep disturbance Exhaustion Emotional isolation Our clients are taught during residential rehabilitation how to look out for the above signs. This allows our clients to take early action and so prevent relapse from developing.

Relapse progression


If emotional relapse is not dealt with appropriately a process known as mental relapse will take place.

During mental relapse the recovered addict becomes ever more conscious of his or her desire to continue with an addictive behaviour.

Often the individual will reason the addiction will be more manageable ‘this time around’.

If advice is not sought swiftly the consequences could be life-threatening as the addiction returns and old levels of tolerance are no longer present.
