Chronic Relapse:

Often referred to as the revolving door syndrome.  Those suffering from chronic relapse are in a pattern of going to rehab, getting sober, completing the rehab program and then relapsing. Chronic relapse can go on for many years and may cause an individual to conclude that rehab does not work.

Revolving Door Syndrome:

Caused by many reasons. A couple of the most common are overconfidence and a disconnect with the treatment modality.

Relapse: 

Defined as the returning to abusing a substance regularly and sometimes uncontrollably. Relapse differs from a lapse, which is considered a one-time slide into substance abuse and doesn’t occur more than once

The data presented below is based
on the traditional model of treatment.

On average, between 25-50% of substance abusers will return to using drugs or alcohol within two years of receiving treatment.

Many studies have been performed highlighting that abstinence, or refraining from using the substance at all, is the only true way to prevent relapse. Addicts who remain abstinent for five years or more only have a 15% chance of relapsing while those sober for a year have a little more than a 50% chance. One-third of addicts who abstain for less than a year will maintain their sobriety

Some of the reasons for people to repeatedly relapse include:
  • Uncertainty
  • Uncertain about recovery: meaning are they really committed to becoming sober?
  • Pleasing Others
  • Getting sober to please someone else and not for themselves. The result is often relapse as soon as they can get away with it.
  • Repeating the Same Program
  • The individual keeps choosing the same traditional recovery treatment option that is not suitable for them (this is one of the most overlooked factors).
  • Co-Occurring Disorders
  • Some people have co-occurring disorders, where they suffer from another mental health problem along with their addiction. Until such people have both of their conditions addressed, they will struggle to settle into sobriety.
  • Pride
  • If the individual is prideful and arrogant, they may find it difficult to be receptive to new information that can make their recovery successful. It is best that newly sober people cultivate a beginner’s mind and be humble enough to accept help.
  • Will-Power
  • Recovery from drug or alcohol abuse encompasses more than simple abstinence. Sustaining your sobriety is a complete change of mind and spirit, not just abstinence.
  • Fear
  • Some people may be scared of fully recovering from their addiction. Substance abuse has become such an essential part of their self-perceived identity that they may fear to let it go.
  • Preparation
  • Another common reason that people become chronic relapsers is that they do not prepare well enough for the transition from rehab to home.
  • Expectations
  • Unrealistic expectations can derail (take out “a”) recovery. Just because you are sober does not mean you will no longer have a bad day. Being sober is terrific but does not exempt you from experiencing ups and downs.
  • Swapping Substances
  • When individuals give up their drug of choice and starts to use other substances, they will stop, and most likely reverse, any progress made in their recovery. This will lead to a relapse back to old habits and conditioning.

Why Does THRIVE: Total Health Recovery Work Where Others Don't?

THRIVE: Discover Who You Really Are!

Developed by a team of addiction recovery experts who wanted to help people understand the true underlying cause of their addiction problem rather than band-aid their feelings of discomfort with the routines, rituals and doctrine of traditional treatment models.  The team also focused on the unmet needs of those who were suffering with chronic relapse.  Inspired by the Three Principles of Psychology (Mind, Thought and Consciousness) they determined to create a program that would represent a paradigm shift in the current model for addiction treatment to a more effective method.

The THRIVE® program is a holistic approach that employs the three principles to reacquaint individuals to their own natural health, resiliency, and serenity. This insight-based method helps people rediscover and reconnect to who they really are.
