Most people think of relapse as a slippery slope to ending sobriety. Treatment has worked hard to get that idea across because it not only places fear in people if they use again but it promotes the idea of relapse as an inevitable part of a lifetime cycle of relapse and recovery.

The good news is that treatment is not the only option and a proven effective alternative exists.
