Relapse Prevention and Recovery Training

About the Course

 

Recovery is now a central focus of treatment services for drug and alcohol agencies.  Drawing on the latest research in recovery, this course will offer those working with problematic drug and alcohol users a clear map of the recovery processes, identify the key challenges those in recovery face.  This begins by understanding the nature of drug and alcohol problems and how recovery addresses these issues.  

 

The course looks at the differences between recovery rates in early onset addictions compared to late onset addiction, that show markedly different recovery patterns.  Based on this, it gives workers practical skills to support clients in early recovery which focuses on protecting the achievement of remaining substance free.  There are only 8 reasons why relapse can occur and the courses then examines the clients personal risk profile.  A wider set of coping skills are then developed to overcome these broader challenges.  Specific attention is then given to lifestyle modification and the importance of recovery environments.  Finally, the programme gives workers skills in developing relapse management plans to help clients overcome setbacks.  This is supported by key learning from clinical research and practical examples.
