When a drug addict relapses, it means they have returned to using drugs after a period of abstinence. Relapse is a common part of the recovery process and can happen to anyone struggling with addiction. It’s important to approach the situation with compassion and understanding, while also encouraging the individual to seek help and get back on the path to recovery. Depending on the circumstances, this may involve attending therapy or counseling, going to a support group, or entering a treatment program. It’s also important to address any underlying issues or triggers that may have led to the relapse, and develop a plan for how to manage these factors in the future.
