We Do Recover

Recidivism can be understood as a recurring pattern of relapse, signifying individuals who repeatedly revert to their former negative behaviors, such as substance abuse or engaging in criminal activities. In the sphere of addiction recovery, recidivism serves as a important metric for assessing the long-term success of individuals in maintaining their sobriety. This measure aids in monitoring the frequency at which individuals experience relapses, offering valuable insights to treatment centers and healthcare professionals for refining and enhancing their therapeutic approaches.

It is key to note that recidivism extends beyond the scope of substance abuse alone. Originally a term associated with the criminal justice system, recidivism characterized the tendency of former inmates to commit new offenses following their release. Recognising the parallels between criminal recidivism and relapse in substance abuse, the addiction recovery community has adopted and incorporated this term into its vocabulary.

In the context of addiction treatment, the primary objective is to minimize recidivism rates and equip individuals with the necessary tools and coping strategies to safeguard against relapse. This holistic approach seeks to empower individuals in their journey toward sustained recovery, emphasising the importance of addressing the underlying factors contributing to their addictive behaviors and providing comprehensive support to promote lasting change.
