Relapse is a word that usually strikes fear in the hearts of those in recovery. Yet, relapse is a facet of most individuals' recovery story and can be readily managed if we accept that, if it happens, we will be prepared. So, how do we recognize that we need increased support to tolerate the emotions and thoughts that interrupt and impede our recovery journey?
Join us as we discusses the signs and symptoms of a relapse and provides tools for moving through relapse without "derailing" the advances you've made. Attendees will learn to identify their own red and yellow flags, how to stay alert in their recovery and will learn effective ways to ask for support from friends, family and providers. The concept that treatment is not a "one and done" process will be explored and validated, and attendees may come to accept that with their continued growth and change, additional support may be needed.
