Relapse Prevention Plan
A relapse prevention plan is a vital tool for anyone in recovery. Having a plan helps you recognize your own personal behaviors that may point to relapse in the future. It also outlines ways to combat those behaviors and get back on track.
A relapse prevention plan is a written document a person creates with their treatment team and shares with their support group. The plan offers a course of action for responding to triggers and cravings.
Relapse usually isn’t a spur-of-the-moment event. Typically it is a three-part process, including:
- Emotional relapse
- Mental relapse
- Physical relapse
With a relapse prevention plan, it is possible to acknowledge and act upon certain feelings and events, in turn avoiding a physical relapse (which is the stage when someone returns to drug or alcohol use).Download PDF of Relapse Prevention Plan from Multiple Sources using the direct download link given below.
