Handling The Triggers

How To Shun Temptations


There are numerous ways for reducing the percentage of lures although it is hard to stay away from them after therapy for dependence is completed.

Deciding to submit to treatment surely does not come easy. Dedication to keep away from the drug is when proper retrieval starts to take place while dependence therapy clinics give support on detox and alleviation.

A new and abstemious life will begin the moment that provocations are recognized and a suitable reversion avoidance plan is made despite lures being a dangerous trap.


If you have just begun the journey to overcome your addiction, you may find it difficult to say "No" when you are faced with the choice of taking alcohol or drugs.


Your Triggers And Spotting Them

It is while you are at the rehab centre that you can make the most crucial decision on how to overcome the challenge. To control and keep away possible provocations, dependence retrieval counsellors work with patients to inspect the provocations that caused the compulsion and deal with them while attending the course of the therapy program.

Triggers are different from person to person, but some are pretty common. Common ones:

  • Re-established Or Continued Relationships With Drug Abusers
  • Nothing can undo all the hard work put into treatment like going back to a social environment that accepts drug or alcohol use.
  • Severe Emotional Situations
  • There may be the desire to overcome some negative feelings such as stress, dejection, and unnecessary worries by using drugs or taking alcohol.
  • Living Conditions
  • It is almost impossible to fully recover no matter how focused and committed you are to your game plan when the same troubles and triggers are present on a daily basis.
  • Social Situations
  • Gatherings in which alcohol and drugs flowed freely spark off craving for substance use.
  • You should avoid social scenes in which drugs and alcohol are accessible during initial stages of recovery.
  • Rooted Childhood Shocks
  • Surviving strategies are consequence of dysfunctional family situations, childhood mistreatment or shock that will turn into drug overuse.

Solicit assistance from a professional addiction counsellor to show you productive ways of identifying specific triggers and how to manage the situation through engaging your creative mind on positive actions.

Detailing A Relapse Prevention Scheme

Patients can start getting clean starting residential therapy programs which have a highly organized surrounding. That is the reason strategic discharge plan for continued therapy program outside the environment is critical to prevent relapse in unstructured surrounding.

The effort required to put together a full proof plan is entirely personal, and should not be underestimated. Whatever may serve as obstacle can easily be overcome if you have a candid discussion with a counsellor without hiding your feelings so the you can be helped to map out a plan that will help you overcome the obstacles and put your addiction behind you.


The situations brought about by the shift from rehab to a real-world environment can be anticipated and a good plan can be developed out of it. Staying clean and sane daily after rehab care is part of the goal in developing the relapse-proof plan.

The following should be considered in order to come up with a sound relapse game plan:

  • Collaborate closely with a relative or close friend to facilitate the process.
  • Your support system should be able to sterilize your place so that it will be free from any triggers or substances that could easily be abused.
  • A List Of Anticipated Triggers
  • Keep you eye on the prize by compiling a list of potential stimulants such as places, people, and others that can put your determination to the test.
  • Strict Compliance To 12-step Programs And Support Assistance
  • Constructing a care system and liability with sincere and open communication.
  • Another positive side of the 12-step process is the opportunity to gain friendly association with people who will contribute to the success of the treatment you receive from the centre.
  • Change To A Healthy And Better Version Of Yourself
  • This step starts with little commitments and compliance to an exercise program, balanced diet, and even improved sleeping habits.
  • Addiction will often result in mental and physical desperation, so you need to focus on bringing both to a healthy natural balance.
  • Attending 3 to 6 months of an outpatient program.
  • This will ensure you are surrounded by more support, can attend counselling and get structured feedback.
  • Managing Hunger, Anger, Loneliness or being Tired (HALT approach) effectively also helps the patient in avoiding relapse.
  • It is also helpful to prepare a visual aid listing all the cons of reverting to abuse and the benefits of maintaining sobriety.
  • It is important to save the list and keep it handy in order to review it every once and awhile when you may be tempted to abuse drugs again as it reminds you of the hard work you've made to stay away from the substance.

Finding Support In Recovery

There is the tendency to go back to the drug or alcohol despite all these plans. Relapse should not mark the end of recovery from addiction, instead it should serve as an eye opener to a wider scope of available opportunities of adjustment to get back on course and pursue the ultimate price. Falling into relapse does not mean you have failed, keep on trying.
