Rehab After Relapse: Drug and Alcohol Addiction Treatment Truths

Just like every addiction is different, so is every path to lasting recovery. Some are straight and simple, while others have lots of twists and turns. If you’ve relapsed, even after getting treatment for your addiction, it doesn’t mean that your road has come to an end. Rehab after relapse could be the decision that finally saves your life.

Choosing to enter rehab the first time around can be incredibly difficult. Attempting it again after relapse is even harder. There’s the shame of failure, the exhaustion of defeat. There also may be financial concerns to confront.

But the reality is that many people need to go through residential treatment more than once in order for it to stick.

That doesn’t mean that the rehabs you’ve tried before weren’t great. Rehab is not a one-size-fits-all process, and success depends upon finding the right fit for you.

For example, if you tried a big corporate facility in the past, maybe this time a smaller, homier spot would be a better fit.

Or, if you tried treatment near home, maybe you need to go further afield in search of recovery.

At The Mend, we offer features that aren’t always available at other residential treatment facilities in Orange County or elsewhere.

We have regular music therapy, for example, breathwork sessions, and house BBQs.

We also regularly work with people who have relapsed, in both our detox and residential treatment tracks, so we know what it’s like and how to get you feeling confident in the possibility of recovery again.

If you’re ready to discuss the possibility of giving rehab a try, contact one of our care coordinators.
