Relapse can be a deadly process but it is preventable
Relapse prevention is at the core of addiction treatment yet there is still a very high attrition rate. To develop a realistic relapse prevention plan we need to fully understand the dynamics involved. We need to know the how and the why of how relapse occurs.
There are many theories as to why some people frequently relapse while others do not. Even though many may struggle they do achieve and maintain abstinence without the trauma and drama attached to those that serially relapse. Why do some succeed while others don’t?
This workshop will look at these and other challenging questions from a systemic perspective. It will have a solutions focused approach and demonstrate how Choice Theory Psychology, CBT/REBT and Strengths Perspective type interventions can be most effective.
