Addiction relapse a common problem for those in treatment

by Adrienne

Hello!

Nice to meet you! I think you've got a great collection of resources here for recovering addicts and their families. I know that for families one of the most frustrating things when dealing with a family member's addiction can be simply not understanding why they can't just "get better" - it's especially hard when you see a loved one repeatedly go through the revolving door of treatment, recovery, relapse, and treatment again.

Because I don't think that many people truly understand relapse and its prevalence as a problem, I created a video that explains relapse, its triggers, and some of the known statistics about the problem.

Did you know that 61% of those who relapse once will relapse again? Yeah. That factoid and others can be found in the video, right here:

I'm sure your readers would find this video fascinating and useful for understanding relapse. If you agree, there's an embed code you can use to include it in your next article. I hope you will share the video and help improve people's understanding of relapse!

Looking forward to hearing your thoughts about the video. Keep up the excellent work!
