ENVIRONMENT of RECOVERY" 
 The following plan helps 
1.One needs to identify, what were the reasons, why did the client relapse in the first place.
There are many predispositions that contribute to a relapse. Making a
list of triggers that led to the relapse is the first step.
2.Internalising the many reasons for a relapse.
What contributed to the “mental relapse” and why did it create the personal “emotional relapse”.
This is unique to each client. This soul searching exercise needs honesty, transparency, responsibility and
accountability. This will help you understand your "emotional brain the Limbic system"
3.Recognizing the destructive behaviors that played havoc helps in creating a balanced life style. Addressing ones Guilt, Anxiety, Anger and Shame (GAAS) is vital
for a client’s recovery. Coming to terms with GAAS helps the client heal and feel
no emotional pain. Dealing with ones GAAS has paramount importance in one
maintaining or continuing to live substance free.
4.Planning a Smart Recovery and living a balanced lifestyle
is not an intellectual exercise. It is an exercise in behavior modification and change. Change from the old ways of thinking, feeling and acting. It almost
involves erasing what you learnt to learn a new set of values and beliefs.
5.A balanced lifestyle is contagious and brings about a happy life. One needs to make this happy lifestyle change/transition the new normal and a way of moving forward. Lasting change can happen only when
you work at it on a daily basis.
6.Recovery and being sober, go hand in hand. Building relationships that are  more healthy is the start to sobriety.
Maintaining a drug or alcohol free life takes more than just stopping to drink or use drugs. One needs to embrace life’s challenges and difficulties without the substance and with the help of people, the addict loves. This new
relationship with the partner, family, extended family and the community at large creates joy, happiness and a purpose to live.
