Chronic Relapse

Chronic relapse happens when an individual who is trying to recover from any type of addiction is, for the short term, successful in doing so, and then later falls back into the addiction again. Chronic relapsers can repeat this pattern many times, getting clean from substance abuse, or stopping addictive behaviour, only to later start using the substance or to engage in their addiction once again. With a strong support network and proper medical management, chronic relapsers are eventually capable of overcoming their addictions. Are you, or a friend or loved one experiencing chronic relapse? Do you need information on support networks or group therapies for chronic relapse in your community? Are you looking for a professional who can help you structure a relapse prevention plan, to finally put an end to the cycle of chronic relapse? We have resources within your community that can help.

In most cases, the depression quickly subsides. Others, however, suffer from serious bouts of depression throughout their recovery.

Maximum Strength

Addiction Recovery for Addicts That Regularly Relapse

Millions of Americans today are suffering with addiction - and the standard addiction treatment industry fails them 95% of the time. Dr. Allen Berger, nationally recognized expert on The Science of Recovery, says, "The field for the treatment of substance abuse disorders is in a serious crisis...a crisis that has reached critical mass." It is time for change...before it is too late. In this book, Ross Remien lays out his step-by-step plan for a revolutionized approach to addiction treatment. As an addict himself, Ross relapsed several times. He experienced the deep emotional pain, struggle, and life-long battle that every addict has to overcome. But he did just that. He overcame. With the right support, approach, and commitment to do "whatever it takes" to overcome addiction, Ross was finally able to live the life he always desired. Ross's story not only inspires those who suffer from addiction, but it also provides a proven model for success from someone who never thought it was possible. With his trademark no-nonsense, straight-talking style, Ross breaks down the steps to create extreme recovery and lifelong relapse prevention in your life. If you're struggling with addiction - or if you know someone who is - and are finally ready to break the cycle of relapse for good, Ross will show you the way. In this book, you will: -> Discover the top reasons that you can't currently recover > Learn the hidden pitfalls where relapse is most common - and how to prepare for them > Develop the tools you need to succeed in overcoming your addiction > Own your past and create the future that you want > Create a spiritually profitable life of sustained sobriety

Addiction & Recovery

All the best recovery meetings I have ever been to start with a story, so I will tell you mine. If you identify with it - good - but try to look for the similarities and not the differences. Addiction and Recovery is contains teachings from many different sources; some are the ideas of eminent psychologists, others are from the pages of spiritual books and the minds of spiritual thinkers. Much of the book combines aspects of the AA 12 Step Programme. However, this book is not endorsed by them it might challenge you in places, ask you to at least entertain a few new ideas or give you directions to places you’ve dreamt of visiting all your life but have never believed you could reach, but for now, think of it as sanctuary.

The Chronic Psychiatric Patient in the Community

Principles of Treatment

The purpose of this book is to present an integrated approach to the treatment of the chronic psychiatric patient living in the com munity. This requires that topics as diverse as pharmacokinetics, psychotherapy and community organization be appropriately coor dinated. Such an approach is partly complicated by the wide range of differences among patients, in terms of social skills, intellectual capacity and psychiatric diagnosis. In addition, unclear, insular or overlapping roles of various mental health disciplines further con found integrated treatment efforts. Given such complexity, any single clinician's point of view is sub ject to the distortion inherent in specialization. Too often a volume in the field of mental health focuses either on only one aspect or presents only one clinician's unique perspective of a task that is, in fact, multifaceted. We have tried to avoid this pitfall by having representatives from many of the concerned professions present a variety of treatment approaches and associated issues in one text. Further, the editors have attempted to illuminate the relevant clinical and/or administrative interrelationship between the subjects of each section through a succinct introductory commentary. The book is divided into five sections. The first section represents an attempt to address some of the interactive sociological, psycho logical and pharmacological background issues common to all at tempts at treatment of this population.
