What Causes Failure Of The Previous Regimen

Most times, regression shows that the management needs fine tuning and not that there is total failure of the therapy. It is not difficult to fall back into old habits because it is quite common to respond to cravings, boredom, triggers and doubt. Users get more deeply dependent on the substance than before during regression. A relapse is often accompanied by negative emotions, like guilt and low self-esteem, which ironically makes the situation worse because the person uses drugs with greater force to deal with inner turmoil. Every single instance of drug use after rehab weakens chances of recovery. The results of a relapse are usually very catastrophic.


One should be able to acknowledge that sobriety becomes a daily way of life coming out from the treatment facility.

The idea of having to return to rehab is not preferred by many, but it can possibly save your life. Do you want to start rehabilitation after you have regressed? Contact us immediately.
