Relapse Prevention: How We Help You Maintain Your Recovery in Saudi Arabia
Relapse prevention is a crucial component of all of our treatment therapies, as it has been proven to drastically increase the effectiveness of our drug, alcohol and process addiction programmes.
Relapse rates in Saudi Arabia can be staggering – but with our tools, you can navigate the challenges of your environment and come out stronger for it. We believe having access to these strategies is key to achieving long-term sobriety once you return to Saudi Arabia.
We define relapse prevention as tools and techniques designed to help people with drug and alcohol addictions from falling back into using again. During your treatment, the therapies and activities you take part in will help you to develop these tools. You’ll also receive extensive relapse prevention training and education while you’re with us. Working with our addiction experts, you’ll start to understand your own addiction and its underlying causes.
Ultimately, we will teach you methods to change your behaviour and provide you with tools and techniques to help cope with stressful situations that may lead to relapse.
The Cabin’s Relapse Prevention Tools and Techniques Include:
Mindfulness meditation is a 2,500 year old practice that exercises the brain – and it’s scientifically proven to aid in the treatment of addiction. It especially helps you to deal with cravings and develop new thought patterns that give you a sense of personal power, renewed alertness and improved strength. In short, it helps you to avoid relapse.
Tools to Identify Your Triggers
Relapse usually results from a buildup of stress or pressure. There will always be warning signs or triggers that let you know you’re feeling the urge to use again – before you actually use. Our rehab programme will teach you how to identify these warning signs and equip you with the tools to cope with your triggers and stay sober.
Strategies for Managing Your Sober Time
Boredom is a one of the biggest reasons that people go back to using drugs or alcohol. To combat this, we provide Sober Time Coaching to help you develop new strategies and activities to manage your time after rehab. During your treatment, you’ll partake in various activities such as yoga, swimming and biking, among others.
Our goal is for you to develop healthy hobbies that you can integrate into your daily life outside of rehab – because keeping yourself occupied with healthy activities is a key strategy in preventing relapse.
A Comprehensive Relapse Prevention Plan
During your first 90 days after rehab, maintaining sobriety may be difficult. You’ll be back in your own environment, without the constant support of rehab – and you may face negative influences or temptations.
It’s normal to experience intense emotions as you readjust to life at home. But the reality is, the stress and anxiety of everyday life will test your strength and might make you want to use again.
The Cabin will prepare you for these challenges. We’ll help you to create a personalised relapse prevention plan that will anticipate possible causes of relapse and develop strategies to overcome them. This plan will serve as a solid foundation for your long-term recovery.
Online Video Aftercare Programme
We also offer a unique online aftercare programme, hosted on our own, secure video platform. This programme includes free weekly group sessions and optional one-on-one counselling, which can be carried out in the comfort and privacy of your own home.
Aftercare is free to attend during your first eight weeks after leaving The Cabin Chiang Mai, but is accessible to you for however long you feel that you require our professional support. We’re here for you.
