Relapse Prevention and Addiction Recovery
- Participate in our specially designed relapse prevention courses
- Adhere to the personally designed program of aftercare our clinical team develops for each individual client
The rate of relapse amongst recovering addicts who cease treatment immediately after completing inpatient rehab is significantly higher than amongst those who continue on with a specially designed program of addiction recovery aftercare. While we at The Lighthouse Recovery Institute do incorporate extensive and detailed relapse prevention courses into our inpatient program, we strongly believe that relapse prevention as part of a continued aftercare program is essential to maintained and meaningful sobriety. We recommend that all of our clients remain involved with some program of addiction recovery immediately following their graduation from inpatient treatment – this typically comes in the form of integrated involvement in a 12-step program, such as Alcoholics Anonymous, Narcotics Anonymous, or any other similarly structured 12-step fellowship.
We will introduce our clients to the 12-step method while they are in treatment, familiarizing them with the literature and the basic structure of the program in general. We will also transport clients to and from local 12-step meetings, allowing them to become further acquainted with the program of recovery they will be expected to participate in.

Our Mission at Lighthouse Recovery
We also utilize a relapse prevention program called MAP as a part of our services offered to recently graduated clients. MAP follows up with alumni on a weekly basis, checking in to see how many meetings they are managing to attend, what other actions they are taking to bolster their recovery, and whether or not they are in need of any additional support. MAP also engages with the family of the recovering addict or alcoholic, mapping the progress and emotional state of all members of the family individually, and helping guide them through any issues and resolve any concerns that may arise.
In addition to this program of aftercare, the case manager that worked closely alongside each client while he or she was undergoing inpatient treatment will follow up with the family of the client for a year after program completion. This way, if a client seems to be getting off track, we can evaluate the situation and do our best to assist in any and every way possible.
Relapse prevention is a crucial component of inpatient treatment, and its importance will last for the remainder of one’s sobriety.
