Relapse Prevention program

Addiction has both psychological and physical factors to consider, and both should be managed during treatment to foster a recovery with fewer and less significant episodes of relapse.

Detox focuses mainly on the physical aspect of addiction, but in order to avoid relapse, the emotional and behavioral aspects need to be considered and addressed. We Use Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)that  is an effective tool for enhancing treatment and helping to reduce relapse, as the journal Psychiatric Clinics of North America states that abstinence rates may be increased with the use of CBT methods. We also use Behavioral therapies help a person to become more self-reliant and able to work through potential stressful situations that may arise. CBT explores the way a person’s thoughts are related to actions, and the therapy can design ways to modify negative thought patterns, thus positively affecting behavior.

Stress is a common trigger for relapse. We teach the patients ways to cope with both external and internal stressors with CBT, individuals may be able to avoid a potential relapse. Studies published in the journal Psychiatric Times have indicated that CBT may actually help to improve a person’s neurobiological circuits in the brain. Depression, anxiety, and mood fluctuations are common side effects of addiction and withdrawal, and CBT can help to smooth out some of these symptoms by teaching strategies to manage them.


We provide Physical stability to the patients through medical detox, as our initial treatment goal is to remove the drugs or alcohol safely from a person’s body and brain while minimizing potential withdrawal side effects. Detox focuses mainly on the physical aspect of addiction. We offer medication-assisted detox to help relieve the symptoms of withdrawal, giving our patients the optimal chance at success. We utilize the latest evidence-based resources to make the detoxification process as safe, comfortable, and effective as possible.
