“Relapse Prevention” will be presented on Tuesday February 28, 2017, from 7:30 pm to 9:00 pm, by Erik Anderson LMSW, CAADC, Dawn Farm Outpatient Program Therapist. Substance addiction has been identified as an illness that requires long-term management. Relapse is a process that begins before alcohol/other drug use is resumed and is usually preceded by a pattern of progressive warning signs. Understanding the relapse process helps recovering people develop an effective plan to identify and prevent relapse. This program will discuss the dynamics of relapse, factors that contribute to relapse, signs that may forewarn of relapse, how to develop a relapse prevention plan and creative, effective strategies to handle both every-day and high-risk situations.
