Some people attain quickly abstinence almost immediately after their backsliding which is quite conventional in the first few months. With that said, a relapse is a serious issue, because you can quickly become tolerant to the drug if you use continuously for some time and consequently will experience withdrawal when you try to wean off.
Staying drug-free should be the primary governing factor when you make the decision of going back or not to rehab.
Putting these facts into consideration, group support therapy and strong after treatment social backing have been incorporated into management plan for the reassurance of the fresh recuperating abusers. The time taken for recovery will also be shortened if you can overcome some of the temptations of recovering.
