“Relapse Prevention” will be presented; by Erik Anderson LMSW, CAADC, Dawn Farm Outpatient Program Therapist. Addiction has been identified as an illness that requires long-term management. Relapse is a process that begins before alcohol/other drug use is resumed and is usually preceded by a pattern of progressive warning signs. This program will discuss the dynamics of relapse, factors that contribute to relapse, signs that may forewarn of relapse, how to develop a relapse prevention plan and creative, effective strategies to handle both everyday and high-risk situations. This program is part of the Dawn Farm Education Series.
