Relapse is a common occurrence in the recovery from alcohol and drug addiction. It is usual for an addict to have at least one relapse before achieving long-term sobriety. If you know someone who is trying to recover from a drug or alcohol addiction, remind them that relapse is possible but you can take steps to prevent them. Avoid those triggers that you know will cause you to use drugs or alcohol again to prevent relapse.
Get treatment from a therapist or a professional addiction counselor to fully recover from a relapse. They will aim to evaluate your relapse and devise a strategy to prevent a recurrence in the future. Triggers, coping techniques, and specific individuals in your support network who you can ask for help should all be included.
