Recovery from drug addiction can be a long-term process and frequently requires multiple episodes of treatment."

As with other chronic illnesses, relapses to drug use can occur during or after successful treatment episodes.

Addicted individuals may require prolonged treatment and multiple episodes of treatment to achieve long-term abstinence and fully restored functioning. Participation in self-help support programs during and following treatment often is helpful in maintaining abstinence.

Will one trip to rehab work? Probably Not.

Will twenty trips to rehab work? Maybe not.

Will a Sober Coach cure your addiction? Definitely not.

Is every opportunity to receive some kind of help for your addiction a step in the right direction? Absolutely.

Rehabs are care centers for really sick people. Really sick people don't always bounce back and re-engage life without a hitch.

Does a chemical relapse mean treatment has failed? No. It means there is a new opportunity for fine-tuning.

In fact, each trip to rehab, each visit to an intensive outpatient treatment center, each session with a Sober Coach or Sober Companion is one more period of time spent abstinent from drugs. Period.

No one can say which was the one attempt at treatment which saved his or her life. Everyone can say he or she is still alive to fight another day after having completed treatment.

It really is as simple as that.
