Understanding Relapse: A Hurdle, Not a Halt, on the Road to Recovery

At KAYA Rehab, we understand addiction is a complex disease, and relapse is a common occurrence. Statistics show 40-60% of individuals relapse within 30 days of leaving treatment, according to the National Institute on Drug Abuse. Addiction expert Terence Gorski emphasizes, “Relapse is a part of the recovery process, not a sign of failure”.

This blog post dives into the science of relapse, offering support and guidance to those in recovery and their families.

Why Does Relapse Happen?

The brain undergoes significant changes during addiction. Cravings and urges can be strong, even after a period of sobriety. Triggers, such as stress, negative emotions, or social situations, can further increase the risk of regression.

KAYA Can Help: Our team of experienced professionals works closely with individuals to identify their triggers and develop coping mechanisms to manage them effectively.

The Impact on Families

Recurrence can be devastating not only for the person in recovery but also for their loved ones. Families often experience feelings of disappointment, anger, and helplessness. KAYA Rehab recognizes this and offers family support programs. These programs equip families with the knowledge and tools to navigate the challenges of addiction and support their loved one’s recovery journey.
