A component of the rehabilitation system is regression. There are a number of things which you can do to get back on the path of recovery if you have experienced a relapse.
Relapse gets even the most committed and focused patient on their way to recovery.
Feeling great remorse and shame after relapsing is common. You may have the feeling that you should be giving up the fight and carry on with your addiction rather than remaining obligated to work hard in order to overcome the fleeting desire to use drugs.
National Institute on Drug Abuse pegs relapse around 40% to 60% among recovering patients.
Think of your relapse as an opportunity to fine tune your prevention strategy and become more familiar with your triggers. A better plan to complete rehabilitation can be formulated when one search intensively for the main determinant of the regression.
Although unfortunate, relapsing after spending considerable amount of time being sober is fairly common. There is usually that urge to return to the use of drugs when someone has become clean for sometime.
You can overcome this feeling when you identify the factors that make you to be tempted.

Your target should always to fully recover after the whole process. The first month after you have recovered, you need to be keeping the best company and maybe change the environment you are living in. You should also continue taking therapy at an outpatient facility after completing rehab.
