Five Potential Percodan Relapse Triggers

Five Potential Percodan Relapse TriggersThe most common relapse triggers are social, environmental, psychological and physical. All of these Percodan use triggers can be prevented with continued treatments through aftercare programs.

1. Stopping Treatment Can Trigger Percodan Relapse

Continuing addiction treatment after primary care is like taking vitamins or getting regular checkups. You may feel that aftercare is unnecessary, but these treatments are meant to stop a Percodan addiction relapse before it happens. Aftercare treatment is a prevention program. Stopping treatment means not attending support group meetings or therapy sessions or stopping the use of medication without a doctor’s consent. A false sense of confidence or complacency may keep you from continuing to build on the foundation of your sobriety.

2. Social Situations Can Trigger Percodan Relapse

The people you surround yourself with can contribute to Percodan abuse, addiction and relapse. People who are enablers, who do nothing to stop you from using, will never be good for you. When you are surrounded by enablers, your addiction will only worsen. Other Percodan users can drag you back into the cycle of abuse, and eople who encourage Percodan abuse should be avoided at all costs. You’ve worked so hard for sobriety, and by simply avoiding bad situations and enabling people, you can avoid relapse. The people who enable your addiction have no concern for your health, safety or happiness, while other users are so wrapped up in their own addiction that their judgment is clouded. Set the example for those around you and learn to avoid social and behavioral relapse triggers by attending regular aftercare sessions.

3. Your Environment Can Trigger a Percodan Addiction Relapse

You should never willingly put yourself in any situation which you know that abusing Percodan will be difficult to resist. Keep Percodan out of your household. Tell those who live with you or are in close contact with you to keep you accountable by watching their Percodan prescriptions. There are relapse trigger avoidance techniques which you can learn in rehab and perfect in aftercare that will make resisting Percodan abuse much easier, but it helps to have an environment that doesn’t enable your addiction.

4. Psychological Issues Can Trigger Percodan Relapse

Mental and emotional triggers such as stress can trigger a relapse. When you were actively using Percodan, any overwhelming emotion such as sadness, anger or anxiety caused you to abuse. Perhaps you started self-medicating as a way of coping with these emotions. Techniques for solving your mental and emotional problems in a healthy way are provided by aftercare programs. Therapy sessions can help you cope healthily without relying on Percodan. Isolation, complacency and boredom are also psychological relapse triggers that can be properly dealt with by recovery professionals.

If you are using Percodan to self-medicate a mental health disorder such as depression or bipolar disorder, have these issues properly treated by medical professionals. These disorders can perpetuate addiction.

5. Physical Cravings Can Trigger a Percodan Addiction Relapse

Your physical health may be a trigger that leads you to self-medicate pain or another illness or injury, restarting the abuse cycle. Be prepared to handle cravings in the real world by starting in rehab and continuing to be supported in aftercare programs.
