The reality is that there is always a chance of relapse for any number of reasons, but it does not have to be an inevitability. We discuss the possibility of relapsing with our clients early on and throughout their program. By dealing with this possibility of relapse upfront we are able to make our clients aware of the why, when or where they may find themselves vulnerable to such an event. Then, how to best avoid the possibility of actually experiencing a relapse. Our goal, a well-founded recovery as the best defense.
