Admitting that you have a substance abuse problem and seeking help is very commendable. However, while you may feel like you have beat your demons after completing rehab, it’s important to be aware that there is a possibility that you will relapse. In fact, drug and alcohol abuse experts indicate that relapse is very likely.

Abstinence is key to avoiding relapse, but it isn’t enough to prevent it from happening. Being fully recovered requires drastic changes to your lifestyle and plenty of support. Unfortunately, many addicts don’t make the changes that are necessary or have the support that is needed to stay remain in recovery and end up relapsing.

Why Do So Many People Relapse?

If you’re about to begin your journey into recovery, here’s a look at some of the most common reasons why relapse can happen.

High Stress

For anyone who is in recovery from drug and/or alcohol addiction, stress is their biggest enemy. Tons of commitments, an intense workload, family life, money problems, relationship issues; all of these things can lead to intense stress. Unfortunately, when recovering addicts start to feel stress building up, they often crumble and turn to drugs or alcohol to help them cope.

Insufficient Support

You really need a support network that you can rely on to help you through your recovery. This is particularly true when you first start your journey, as you will be very fragile. If you don’t have support that you can count on, there’s a very good chance that you are going to succumb to your addiction and start using again. Remember: addiction is a disease, and like any disease, healing from it requires the right support.

Not Making Life Changes

If you are still hanging out with the same crowd of people who use drugs and alcohol, you live in the same environment where you used, or you are maintaining the bad habits that you kept while you were using, you’ll be more inclined to relapse.
