Relapse Prevention at The Cabin Singapore
Relapse prevention is a vital part of the recovery process. It has been proven to drastically increase the effectiveness of any addiction treatment. At the Cabin Singapore, relapse prevention is a crucial component to our comprehensive programme. We believe it is key to achieving long-term sobriety.
We define relapse prevention as tools and techniques designed to help people with drug, alcohol, or process addictions maintain their sobriety and enter long-term recovery. During your treatment you will participate in therapies and activities to develop these tools. You will also receive extensive relapse prevention training and education. Working with our addiction experts you will start to understand your own addiction and its underlying causes. Singapore is rife with temptation, and we will teach you methods to change your behaviour and provide you with tools and techniques to help cope with stressful situations that may lead to relapse.
While relapse prevention is a part of our regular outpatient treatment programme, you may also choose to attend The Cabin Singapore after a stay in a residential treatment programme in order to continue your care and build your relapse prevention skills. Contact us for a free, no obligation initial assessment to get started.
How Does The Cabin Singapore’s Treatment Programme Work to Prevent Relapse?
The Recovery Zones programme includes in depth relapse prevention training that will help you develop a personalised relapse prevention plan that will serve as the foundation for long-term recovery.
One advantage of attending our convenient outpatient addiction treatment is that you will need to practice your recovery skills in real life from day one. You will be faced with the same day-to-day stressors and you will learn how to cope without using drugs or alcohol. For those transitioning from inpatient treatment, the first three month of this transition can be extremely difficult and continuing treatment at our outpatient centre can help ensure that this transition does not lead to relapse.
Some methods we utilise to help clients prevent relapse include:
Mindfulness. Mindfulness is a 2,500 year old practice that exercises the brain that is now scientifically proven to aid in the treatment of addiction. Practising mindfulness is especially helpful for dealing with cravings, and developing new thought patterns that give you a sense of personal power, renewed alertness and improved strength to avoid relapse.
Tools to identify your triggers. Relapse usually results from a build-up of stress or pressure. There will always be warning signs or triggers that let you know you are feeling the urge to use again. Our programme will teach you how to identify these warning signs and equip you with the tools to cope with your triggers and stay sober.
Managing your sober time. Boredom can be a major reason that people go back to drug abuse. Our goal is for you to develop healthy hobbies that you can integrate into your daily life outside of treatment. Finding new and fulfilling activities to participate in your spare time is a key strategy to preventing relapse.
If you have already attempted outpatient addiction treatment and have relapsed several times, this does not mean you are a failure, however in these cases our addiction specialists may refer you to our leading inpatient rehab located in Northern Thailand
