Relapse Prevention: How We Help You Maintain Your Recovery in Malaysia
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. The national average for relapse amongst addicts in Malaysia is a staggering 50% – but with our tools, you can navigate this challenging 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 Malaysia.
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 you will participate in therapies and activities with the goal of developing these tools. You will also receive extensive relapse prevention training and education. Working with our addiction experts, you will start to understand your own addiction and its underlying causes. 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 that is now scientifically proven to aid in the treatment of addiction. It especially helps you to deal with cravings, develop new thought patterns that give you a sense of personal power, renewed alertness and improved strength 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 are feeling the urge to use again. 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 can be a major reason that people go back to drug abuse. We provide Sober Time Coaching to help you develop new strategies and activities to manage your time. During your treatment you will 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. Keeping yourself occupied with healthy activities is a key strategy to preventing relapse.
A Comprehensive Relapse Prevention Plan
During the first 90 days after rehab, maintaining sobriety may be difficult. You will be back in your own environment and may face negative influences or temptation. It’s normal to experience intense emotions. 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 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 the first eight weeks after leaving The Cabin Chiang Mai, but is also accessible to all former clients for however long they feel that they require our professional support.
