Triggers And Coping With Them

How To Shun Temptations


You can engage in these activities to reduce your exposure to circumstances that will lead to relapse, although staying clear of what will stimulate the dependence is hard.

Existence can be very different once one decides to go through therapy for dependence. Just as mustering your courage in undergoing treatment, your focus in staying clean and resisting the urge depends on your commitment to getting well.

A new and abstemious life will begin the moment that provocations are recognized and a suitable reversion avoidance plan is made despite lures being a dangerous trap.


There may still be temptation to fall back into the same old habits that put you in rehab in the first place, the struggle is real and something a lot of people experience when they first finish their treatment program.


Establishing Your Triggers

Developing a roadmap to your recovery should take place while you are still undergoing rehabilitation. To control and keep away possible provocations, dependence retrieval counsellors work with patients to inspect the provocations that caused the compulsion and deal with them while attending the course of the therapy program.

You're unique, so are your specific triggers, except for universal trigger points. Some of these are:

  • Re-established Or Continued Relationships With Drug Abusers
  • Attending venues where drug and booze consumption are very common.
  • Severe Emotional Situations
  • There may be the desire to overcome some negative feelings such as stress, dejection, and unnecessary worries by using drugs or taking alcohol.
  • Negative Home Environment
  • Going back to an isolated and lonely living environment can reignite the same memories that first put them on a road to addiction.
  • Social Surroundings
  • Being in a social situation where alcohol or drugs are being used can trigger an ex-addict into falling back into relapse.
  • Everywhere where drug or alcohol is used should be an "off-limits" for an addict who is just trying to break the destructive habit.
  • Profound Childhood Trauma
  • Surviving strategies are consequence of dysfunctional family situations, childhood mistreatment or shock that will turn into drug overuse.

Supporting an individual with a dependence by locating the precise causes and dealing with them is possible with a cautious and systematic training by a professional dependence counsellor.
