A practical approach to recovery from addiction.

A Focus On Relapse Recovery & Prevention

Alcoholism and drug addiction are chronic, progressive diseases. As with any chronic disease, relapse is a reality. However, we know that the longer a person can engage in treatment, and the more individualized that treatment is, the more positive the outcome.

Makana Path’s Medical Detox Program is designed for clients who have experienced relapse. We specialize in treating chronic relapsers and those who identify as treatment-resistant and utilize a multi-pronged approach that comprises:

  • Clinical and medical evaluation.
  • Intensive Healing.
  • Case management.
  • Aftercare monitoring.
  • Relapse prevention training.

Relapse happens, but it isn’t a sign of moral failure. It’s a sign that treatment needs to be more accurately tailored to a client’s needs. In our experience, permanent recovery outcomes occur when a client participates in a combination of evidence-based clinical therapies and 12-step programming under the direction of a case manager who advocates for their care.

Recover With Us


Relapse is a part of recovery, but it’s preventable. Our relapse focus instills a set of lifelong practices that empower our clients to achieve and maintain lasting recovery. For more information, contact an Admissions Counselor at 1-866-922-0776


Relapse is also a sign that a person’s spiritual health is lacking. Real recovery requires a spiritual awakening, and it can be easy to get caught up in the noise of everyday life, even after you’ve completed treatment.

Makana Path’s Intensive Healing Program is designed to help our clients heal old belief systems that are holding them back in multiple areas of their lives. We rely on several types of clinical and complementary therapies, including:

  • Individual and group therapy.
  • 12-step education.
  • Physical exercise with a certified personal trainer.
  • Healthy meal preparation.

Whether a client has recently relapsed or is new to recovery, relapse prevention is our top priority. But prevention is so much more complicated than merely learning how to say “no.”

Recovery is a journey that requires a lifelong commitment to sobriety. It’s important to understand that relapse isn’t something that occurs suddenly, nor does it signify the end of recovery.

Instead, relapse occurs over time and offers plenty of warning signs. The coping skills and strategies we teach at Makana Path can help a client bounce back after a relapse rather than return to substance use, or prevent relapse altogether.
