Relapse Prevention; Long-Term Sobriety. Best-selling author Rev. Dr. Kevin T. Coughlin Ph.D. shares his experience, strength, and hope, as you travel a journey of lessons learned over two decades of recovery and many years working in the industry with him.
This workbook and manual is jam-packed with information that will assist the newcomer as well as the old-timer in recovery. Successful relapse prevention is a process! Learning, developing, and using new skills, attitudes, beliefs, and values that help you to reach your life’s goals and objectives in recovery. Relapse prevention is about committing to a life of recovery and following an action plan to stay clean and sober. Relapse does not need to happen in recovery from addiction, if it does you move forward in recovery. Addiction is a disease and relapse can happen; however, to teach people that relapse is part of recovery, sets them up to fail. Many individuals recover from addiction without ever relapsing, it’s a choice. To use a drug, you must make a decision followed by an action.
Relapse is not a prerequisite! Addicts and alcoholics can get clean and sober the first time that they try and never look back. A relapse does not have to happen. In fact, if an addict or alcoholic works a modality or program of recovery giving 100% effort, they should not ever relapse. Any relapse could end in disaster! Anyone that has the miracle of recovery should do everything in their power not to ever relapse. It could cost them their lives!
Relapse Prevention; Long-Term Sobriety is the author’s eleventh book. This book is dedicated to the author’s long-time friend and mentor John Phelps.
