Relapse is often a process, not an event. If you’ve relapsed or feel in danger of relapsing, we’ll help you get back on your feet. Instead of merely repeating the same treatment, we confront relapse with an innovative approach, facing the challenge with you.
Turn setbacks into solutions.
Someone with a substance use disorder may be in recovery for months or even years when they find themselves turning to substance use again — seemingly without warning. Sometimes signs of relapse can go unnoticed or be dismissed. And if not proactive, the risk of relapse will grow. But, Ashley can help you take back control.
Our Relapse Program gives you a treatment plan unique to your needs and circumstances. Specialized in prevention techniques outlined by Terence Gorski and the Gorski Approach, our team of licensed counselors identifies and addresses any underlying issues, triggers and co-occurring or untreated mental health concerns to help you pave the way to lifelong recovery.
“I came to Ashley as the result of my relapse after many years of sobriety. I entered feeling angry at myself, exhausted, ashamed. Ashley is a remarkable place of hope and healing. Every person on the staff treats patients with dignity and respect.”Jim R.
How the program works
The Relapse Program takes place at our 147-acre main campus in Havre De Grace, Maryland. Nestled into the Chesapeake Bay, it’s the perfect setting for you to find the motivation needed to heal the mind, body and spirit. You’ll have support from your peers in our inclusive environment where all people are treated with dignity and respect.
Throughout the 28-day program, you will:
- Undergo onsite, medically monitored detoxification, if needed.
- Have access to Ashley’s team of certified medical professionals, and relapse counselors.
- Work with the team to identify personal relapse warning signs and develop a plan to manage them.
- Attend 12-Step meetings.
- Attend individual and group therapy.
- Receive an individualized continuing care plan to manage the transition from inpatient treatment to the next stage of recovery. Experience has taught us that longer-term treatment results in better outcomes
