Discussion: Relapse and Recovery
This week’s Learning Resources
explore the contributing factors to relapse, principles, and procedures
of relapse prevention, and the ways in which culture and diversity may
affect relapse and recovery behaviors. Think about how the addiction
treatment models you have explored complement the principles and
procedures of relapse prevention. Also, consider how the addiction
treatment models effectively manage the contributing factors to relapse.
To prepare for this Discussion, proceed as follows:
Reflect on the video program In their own words, and consider the
issues the addicts discuss, including addiction, relapse, and recovery.
Then, review the article “Treatment for Alcohol and Other Drug
Abuse: Opportunities for Coordination,” and think about the contributing
factors to relapse, as well as principles and procedures of relapse as
outlined in the article.
Next, based on the “Substance Abuse Prevention for High-Risk Youth:
Exploring Culture and Alcohol and Drug Use” article, consider the
multicultural and diversity issues that might affect relapse.
Finally, select at least one additional resource that explores the relationship between culture and addiction relapse.
