Understanding Relapse: A New Perspective and Guide

Monday, December 13, 2021 7PM (EST) FAN Virtual Forum ZOOM Webinar

Like any other chronic condition, substance use disorder (SUD) or addiction, is a relapsing disease. Just as those with diabetes may have a relapse of their symptoms, people in recovery may also return to using drugs or alcohol. In fact, the National Institute on Drug Abuse estimates that approximately 40 to 60% of people treated for SUDs will face a relapse. However, the stigma surrounding addiction also hinders our understanding of relapse or recurrence.

 

For our December Family Forum, we’ll present a new perspective on relapse as a natural consequence of chronic disease. Join us as two leading experts from Sanford Behavioral Health, Founder and President Rae Green and Clinical Therapist Carli Noffsinger, provide a practical guide to addressing relapse.

What Will You Learn?

Green and Noffsinger will share how recovery is a family endeavor. And how open communication can serve as a deterrent to relapse. They’ll also explain how family members can talk about relapse with their loved one in recovery in a non-reactive, non-argumentative way.

 

This presentation is intended for:

  • Individuals in recovery

  • Family, friends and support systems of those in recovery

  • Health care and clinical professionals

How do you prepare for something you don’t want to happen? And how does communication and preparation have the ability to reduce the occurrence of relapse? How does opening up the dialogue about relapse/recurrence diminish stigma? With overdose deaths at an all-time high, it’s never been more important to learn how preparing for relapse can be used as a tool to prevent it.
