Relapse prevention is a cognitive-behavioral approach with the goal of identifying and preventing high-risk situations such as substance abuse, obsessive-compulsive behaviour, sexual offending, obesity, depression etc.
Furthermore, relapse prevention is an important component in the treatment process of all psychological conditions. Relapse is a process, it's not an event:
In order to understand relapse prevention the person has to understand the stages of relapse. Relapse starts weeks or even months before the event of actual physical relapse. At mind plus we make our patients aware about these stages so that they could recognize the signs and symptoms to prevent it from actual Physical Relapse.
At Mind Plus we try to prevent Relapse by:
- Making our patients aware about High Risk Situations
- Self Evaluation
