A recovering addict will find that relapse (returning to active addiction) is high risk during the first few months immediately following their drug and alcohol treatment. The triggers and temptations can seem overwhelming even to those most committed to maintaining sobriety and change. The steady ground that a addicts once began to stand on in the controlled environment of the rehab center, will immediately feel a lot shakier in the "real world".
There is no denying the fact that first few days, weeks, and months out of rehab will be among the toughest. By fully committing oneself to an aftercare treatment (sober companion, sober coach), the odds of maintaining long term sobriety can be increased greatly. Full participation in the twelve step fellowships in their area can be the single most important thing a recovering addict can commit to. Though it is hard to go and get involved, our sober companions know how to get addicts involved and how to get a sober network to help them through the journey of recovery.
