Warning Signs of an Alcohol or Drug Relapse
Relapse is common in the alcohol and drug recovery process. It is estimated that more than 90% of those in recovery have at least one relapse before they achieve lasting sobriety.
But a relapse, sometimes called a "slip," doesn't begin when you pick up a drink or a drug. It is a slow process that begins long before you actually use. The steps to relapse are actually changes in attitudes, feelings, and behaviors that gradually lead to the final step, using a drink or a drug.

Share your experience to influence treatment
Please complete this survey to help improve the results of treatment for substance use disorders!

Why?
  • People who have experience with substance use disorders treatment and services know what works and doesn’t work for them. But too often, they are left out of policy decisions – like how treatment and recovery programs are designed, and how programs can help people meet their recovery goals.
  • Community Catalyst and Faces & Voices of Recovery want to change that!
  • By completing this short survey, you can share your experience to help make treatment and services work better, and improve recovery outcomes.
**We expect this survey will take you around 20 minutes**
