Do you find yourself saying things like, “He’s already through rehab recovery several times,” or “She’s been to multiple treatment centers for recovery and rehab”? Sadly, it’s typical for calls to our facility to start like this. Loved ones go away for recovery rehab and come back full of hope, energy, and willpower—and then, the slide backward begins. So many people assume that relapse is a natural, unavoidable part of recovery that it can become a self-fulfilling prophecy. But is relapse inevitable, and is there hope for someone who has been to multiple rehabs?
Instead of looking up “treatment programs near me” online, call 833.551.2304 if you’re seeking recovery help for yourself or someone you love. Speak with someone from our caring and compassionate team to learn more about Gulf Breeze Recovery and what makes it different from any other rehab center.
Is Recovery After Multiple Rehab Programs Still Possible?
When Alex—a former client—first called our facility, their family had all but given up. Attending 11 different rehabs before calling us made this call seem incredibly bleak. Why would they think the 12th rehab would be different from the previous 11?
Through the haze of their addiction, they had a tiny seed of an idea that would ultimately prove to be true: While they had been to 11 different rehabs, each had used the same principles and offered the same basic program. Each one focused on substituting his addiction for counseling, fitness, hard work, or religion rather than providing a real solution. When they realized that Gulf Breeze Recovery was fundamentally different than any other treatment facility, they knew that their past recovery attempts were no longer a factor in their ability to succeed.
The program created by Gulf Breeze Recovery is based on a simple idea: For a person to make a lasting change in their life, that person must have an insight into their addiction that makes continuing with that past behavior unthinkable.
Steps, songs, and mantras can be beautiful—but if they don’t culminate in a personal insight, they are simply pretty words. Chips to count the number of days clean can be helpful as long as the chips aren’t marking a time of mystery where the person holding them has no idea how they achieved it. A treatment program’s greatest gift to clients should be to help develop the ability to see for themselves their true nature that is healthy and whole—not the treatment team’s ability to cheer and coach from the sidelines every time their clients do well.
What Makes Gulf Breeze Recovery Different from Other Rehab Centers?
Most importantly, the team at Gulf Breeze Recovery knows that their job is to help clients learn not just to “hold their addiction in” by managing it but to move beyond it by understanding how it developed. Gulf Breeze Recovery’s addiction treatment programs typically consist of the following:
- Behavioral therapy
- Group counseling
- Individual counseling
- Life skills training
- Relapse prevention skills training
With the help of these activities and therapies, our clients can gain the insight they need to make lasting changes in their lives. We work with each client’s unique situation, taking into account any rehabs they’ve attended in the past and building on those experiences. Together, we can create a path to lasting sobriety.
Today, as Alex explains to other families what they were told when they made that first call, they know that their success isn’t measured externally but internally. No matter how many rehab programs someone has participated in, the ingredients necessary for insightful change were missing if these programs focused on substitution rather than a solution. The real beauty in Alex’s rehab recovery is in the certainty they feel due to learning relapse prevention techniques and knowing that they aren’t “in recovery” or even a “recovering drug addict” but simply a healthy human being, living and thriving.
