Relapse Prevention Program

Sigma Counseling offers a relapse prevention program for substance abuse.  The Relapse Prevention Program is a systematic and cognitive approach method focused on assisting clients to coping and self-regulation skills in order to recognize and manage external, internal triggers, and relapse warning signs throughout the recovery process.  Relapse prevention program primarily focuses on preventing clients from relapse by setting up relapse prevention plan that includes active participation treatment in individualized setting.

Recovery is defined as a process of building a new life style through management of symptoms, and achieving and maintaining abstinence in order to return to healthy functioning. Relapse episodes are usually preceded by a series of observable warning signs. Typically, relapse is about falling back into old thoughts and behaviors that progressively increases a person’s distress, ultimately leading to physical and/or emotional collapse. The distress intensifies and can lead a person to justify returning to substance use for relief. To understand the progression of warning signs, it is important to look at the dynamic interaction between the recovery and relapse. The interaction of recovery and relapse can be described as related processes that include: 1) abstaining from alcohol and other substances; 2) separating from people, places, and things that promote the use of alcohol or substances; and 3) establishing a social network that supports recovery.  

Sigma Relapse Prevention Program is welcome for clients experiencing a range of substance related issues, including voluntary clients, clients on probation, and clients involved with Child Protective Services (CPS).
