Relapse

My partner completed 4 months in rehab and got out on saturday. Moved into his own place, not sure what what could have triggered him, but he relapsed and has been missing since saturday night. So, as a family what do we do now, is there a "  relapse programme"  ? What could have gone wrong, he did SOOO well, we really had high hopes for him, and then this, clearly he was not ready to be on his own yet, probably should have stayed longer in tertiary, but he said he was ready?

When you find him. Get him to attend as many N.A meetings as possible. Every area have them. Get him a sponsor. Trust me if this program can help for me it can help for anyone. It doen''t matter how long you have been clean you can relapse at anytime. You may never see the triggers but they are all over. What you have to remember is that this is a desease, we can never be cured. We can only ''arrest'' out addiction we determine the period ourselfs.

I can not put in word what the N.A did for me and on a dayly basis still do for me. When I get triggered by something i phone or sms my sponsor and not my dealer. I have safety nets in place, like never have more money availible to me than just for bread and milk. Because I know I can''t trust myself.

N.A is God send! Serenity.
