What we are about
Relapse prevention is a voluntary organisation of addicts and alcoholics that have been through the harrowing experience of substance abuse, addiction and ongoing relapse.
We saw the collective need to provide first hand unbiased advice to individuals and families of addicts and alcoholics and took action.
Our aim is to offer direction that enables individuals to permanently break free from addiction and to lead a life in recovery, free from the torments of abuse.
Professional volunteers operate advisories and group meetings are channeled through the membership on this website.
As members of Alcoholics Anonymous/Narcotics Anonymous we hold many collective viewpoints formed from the basis of first hand experience, and the experiences of many who have gone through addiction and have seen the other side.
Get clean/sober and help others get through the process.
While we follow the principles of the 12 step programs and fellowships in online meetings, we are open to modern fact based methods and strategies in the pursuit of sustained recovery.
We follow the ‘whatever works’ principle.
We have no religious affiliations or bias and we do not condone or condemn any association, service or consultancy that is in or not in our network. We act merely as a reinforcing guide and a channel to recovery.
We operate autonomously in the spirit of the fellowships and do not charge for services rendered under Relapse Prevention.
Relapse Prevention is not part of any particular association, group, government or governing body or addiction treatment facility. Our focus is exclusively on the addicts and alcoholics and families of those affected, wherever they may be.
Is this for you?
The motivation for joining this site varies from person to person. Either you are wanting to better understand your addiction or the addiction of an individual close to you. If that is the case, yes. The cycle of recovery is a different for each person and that is why we have designed a system for asking questions and finding community answers and for forming an addiction path into something that suits you in a non-confrontational format.
We are not interested in interventions; we are interested in you and want you to sign up with a community of like minded individuals that are here to help.
Treatment services located in close proximity to those that are suffering from addiction disorders play a vital role in access to support and the long term rehabilitation of individuals. Our nationwide database includes all government and private care rehabilitation services and our counsellors are trained and able to guide you to the best format of treatment for you.
There has been a lot of research that shows that residential rehabilitation is often one of the best ways to improve from the disorder of addiction as quickly. This has been proven as patients go from “rock bottom” into life long “recovery” in only a few weeks. This is not to say that everyone heals in the same timeframes, but for those who are committed to healing and do enter formal rehabilitation centres, progress is exponentially faster.
