Addiction is a progressive disease for which there is no definite cure, but through residential treatment our clients will learn about dealing with relapse triggers in order to lead a successful recovery. Recovery treatment is the first stepping stone for those looking to begin a life of sobriety. A recovering addict must stay diligent once they leave our facility. Once an addict has achieved an extended period of sobriety they may feel that they are now capable of drinking in moderation. This is one of the key instances that leads a person to relapse.
Relapse is a reality that most recovering addicts will deal with at one point or another, but there is much more guilt that the person endures after they have experienced some time in sobriety. Through individual and group therapies, our clients will learn more about the disease of addiction and how it has made their life unmanageable. There will be some emotional pain that one must go through during early sobriety, but they will learn to forgive themselves and make amends to their loved ones by continuing to stay clean and sober.
Patients will gain the knowledge of different recovery tools as a method of relapse prevention. The goal is that when they leave treatment centers for addiction that they feel comfortable and confident returning to their lives.
Alcoholics Anonymous has proved to be one of the most successful solutions to preventing relapse for recovering alcoholics. After being founded in the 1940s and growing into a worldwide organization, it pioneered the way that people understand and recover from all types of addictions. Alcoholics Anonymous, or AA, is a fellowship of men and women who share their experience, strength and hope to help one another recover from their common problem with alcoholism. What started out as a group of suffering alcoholics who believed they could work together to help others stay sober, is now a program that has meetings in all corners of the world.
Recovery from addiction can do more than give people their lives back; it can give them a new outlook on life and better way to live. If you'd like more information on rehab facilities, please call Alcohol Treatment Centers Baltimore (443) 703-1613.
