Relapse happens. Your participants, clients and patients have been there or are there now. No matter how disappointed and alone they may feel you offer them hope and help.
Relapse prevention is key to successful lifelong recovery. There is no one type of support that fits all. Multiple Relapse Supports such as individual counseling, group support, learning resources and accountability working together, all form an effective relapse prevention structure.
