Unity Rehab Helps Addicts Keep Their Substance-Free Resolutions Through Continuing Care
Date:2/8/2010

Addiction Relapse is a persistent problem. In order to help recovering addicts stay sober without relapse, Unity Rehab now offers a Continuing Care program for those that have already undergone an addiction treatment program.

Delray Beach, FL (PRWEB) February 8, 2010 -- As a component of their newly offered Continuing Care program, Unity Rehab provides updated tips to recovering addicts to help prevent relapse. In the wake of recent news about celebrities such as Tiger Woods being admitted for treatment to sex addiction, Unity Rehab has released tips for recovering addicts to help prevent addiction relapse.

Increased media attention for cases like DJ AM, who died of a drug overdose after relapsing in August 2009, and Tiger Woods, who entered into a sex addiction treatment program in January, 2010 has caused many addicts to seek treatment for the first time.

Alan Leshner, Ph.D., director of the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA), says that it is not reasonable to expect that drug addicts will obtain lifelong abstinence with the first treatment experience. "Just like the diabetic, [an addict can be given tools to manage the craving, to manage the compulsion; but every once in a while another treatment may be needed," he says. "Even if [addicts are treated successfully, often there will be occasional relapses."

Unity Rehab provides formal addiction treatment support services to recovering addicts and alumni of their program through their Continuing Care program. Local and remote Alumni are now able to join weekly meetings via conference call or in-person sessions, and can opt to attend quarterly renewal retreats if needed.

Tips provided to Unity alumni include:

 
  • Avoiding people or places associated with your past substance abuse.
  • Ignore the numbers. Many people expect recovering addicts to relapse. Ignore these expectations and focus on your personal recovery.
  • Set milestones. Addiction recovery is a life-long process and can get overwhelming. Set milestones for yourself and acknowledge them in a positive way when they pass.
  • Talk to friends and family members. The people closest to you may be the ones with the greatest fears about your addiction recovery. Talk to them about your feelings, and let them know how they can take an active role in your continued recovery.
  • Find a support group. Many former addicts find 12 step programs like Al-Anon to be helpful in expressing their struggles and sharing their successes with like-minded people.
Unity Rehab’s Continuing Care services are open to all Unity Alumni. If you are someone you love could benefit from treatment please visit http://www.unityrehab.com/ or call 877-83-UNITY.
