Step 5: So You Slipped Up?
Anybody who has ever fought a drug addiction or participated in drug and alcohol rehabilitation programs knows how easy it is to slip up and relapse. Once that relapse happens, it can be even harder to put it behind you and get back to your drug rehab. Relapsing is not the end of your journey to a drug-free life! If you have a slip up, go back over what happened and determine what changes you can make if it happens again. Then get back on your feet and start again. Never let guilt and shame take over if give in to your drug addiction during rehab. You’re trying your best, and all you can do is keep at it.
