Soon after your arrival in drug rehab, you'll start planning your exit. It's easy to stay sober while away from temptation, and although a substantial period of abstinence gives you a foundation for recovery, the real challenges begin once you leave rehab.
You will need to determine what most threatens your continuing sobriety, make a plan to minimize your exposure to these threats and decide exactly what you will do when tempted.
The time you spend planning against relapse while in drug rehab pays enormous dividends once back in the community.
Worried that you might relapse? Take the AWARE Relapse Questionnaire. The AWARE Questionnaire (Advance WArning of RElapse) was designed as a measure of the warning signs of relapse.
