Relapse Prevention Plan

Strong Foundation for Drug Treatment Aftercare

Addiction is extremely complex, and unfortunately, many of those affected by addiction experience relapse. At Footprints Beachside Recovery in Treasure Island, Florida, clients learn that relapse is a process, and not an event. Sometimes, that process can start weeks or even months before the physical relapse. Many addiction rehab & treatment centers only focus on treating substance abuse but not substance abuse relapse prevention. At Footprints, we believe that the goal of relapse prevention plan is to proactively address potential challenges and issues before they occur. That’s why we set our clients up with a strong foundation and relapse prevention plan in aftercare before they leave our treatment center.

My experience with Footprints beachside recovery was absolutely amazing! When I was in a dark place they shined the light within me and educated me in how to recognize addiction and how to move forward with recovery. I highly recommend Footprints to anyone suffering from addiction. They are uplifting and understanding and non-judging!

What are the three stages of relapse?

Many people think that relapse is a choice that many recovering addicts make. Relapses are much more complicated in reality. The three major stages of relapse that recovering addicts face are emotional, mental, and physical.

Phase 1: Emotional Relapse

Emotional relapse is the first stage of relapse. When someone ignores their feelings during the recovery process, they are making it easier for negative emotions to sneak in and influence their decision-making process. To combat emotional relapse, coping skills that are taught during rehabilitation should be called upon.

Phase 2: Mental Relapse

The second stage of relapse is mental. Ignoring one’s emotions leads to this stage of relapse. Skipping group or individual therapy is often a warning sign. To help prevent mental relapse, a change of scenery or a short-term distraction could help.

Phase 3: Physical Relapse

The final stage of relapse is what most people often misidentify as the only step in the process: physical relapse. When the first two stages of relapse occur, physical relapse beings to occur.
