Christian Alcohol and Drug Treatment Centre bets on Terence Gorski Model, Prevents Relapse in Addicts

Fallbrook, CA (PressExposure) March 31, 2012 -- Recovering fully from drug addictions cocaine or any other substance abuse is not an easy task. It is common knowledge that one needs tremendous self-control, determination and belief in the power of God besides the encouraging support from near and dear ones and due medications to get over this problem. While abstinence from drugs and treatment are crucial components of recovery process, experts have pointed out the need for taking note of warning signs of relapse coming in the way of recovery. Christian Drug and Alcohol Treatment Center of California has been making successful use of the Terence-Gorski model of relapse prevention and bets on the efficacy of the model.

Highlighting the significance of the model, the head of the organization, Mr. Todd, lists out many such instances where a timely detection of relapse symptoms paved the way for treating the patients effectively. Todd points out that the steps of the Terence Gorski Model are capable of giving out early hints of relapse provided the caretaking person or the patient himself is made well aware of these. For the patient to be aware of these symptoms, it is necessary that he or she first stabilizes self with proper medication and gains some amount self control with a few days of sober living.

Mr. Todd holds that the model of Christian drug rehab programs is highly practical and is not pushy in nature. It is highly patient centric and not confined to rigidities of timelines. As per Todd, the model is based on the premise that relapsing back to addiction does not crop up all of a sudden. Rather, there are progressive signs of relapse happening which need to be taken account of. And, if these are not detected early, each progressive sign has a capability to weaken the resolve of the person and a time eventually comes when the last sign will lead to intake of the substance. It is these signs which the model focuses on for devising an appropriate behavioral-psychological treatment schedule.

Giving further details on the working of the model, Mr. Todd mentions that the success of the model is dependent on the correct identification of the relapse signs. Mr. Todd attributes the success achieved by his organization in guiding the patients on road to recovery to the use of this model. With significant reduction of the relapse cases, the model has proved to be successful in empowering the patients to recover fully.

Todd reiterates the commitment of his organization to the continued use of this model for relapse prevention in future also. "We want to continue with this highly effective model. We would even like to advocate the other Christian drug rehabilitation centers who are using this model to the patients", says Todd.
