How Does Detox Trigger Relapse?

Detox is a strenuous process. Detoxification alone does not end cravings, urges, and the mental, emotional and physical symptoms of addiction. Treatment is a program that addresses each and every aspect of addiction. Relapse is more likely to occur when the patient is unprepared for the difficulties that lie ahead. Treatment in a specialized facility helps by providing the needed educational opportunities, training, skills sets, and counseling options that fully engage the patient in their recovery and gives them the confidence and knowledge to maintain sobriety outside of the program. Alcoholics (http://www.aabroward.org/search.asp) or Narcotics Anonymous (http://southbrowardna.org/) meetings can help during the recovery process as well. Don't wait one more day.
