Relapse DVDUsing the analogy of the sinking of the Titanic, Claudia brings a new insight and overview to the issues of relapse using stories and electronic graphics to underline key points that deal with understanding and preventing relapse. Key points discussed are:

  • Overconfidence
  • Calling your own shots; the inability to hear what others are saying; contempt prior to investigation; and wanting immediate results; having unrealistic expectations
  • Control - The addict/alcoholic is willing to surrender to the drug of their addiction but continues to control people, places and things
  • Fear of Feelings - Guilt – about lying, cheating, how you’ve treated others; Fear – about facing the world sober, fear of not being able recoup what you once had; Anger – with self for not being able to control your drug and alcohol use; Sadness – for what has been lost to the disease
  • Secrets - Sexual behavior; physical and/or sexual abuse; secrets about relationships or sexual orientation; other drugs used but not acknowledged; criminal activity; and financial problems. The shame or deception involved in having secrets is a frequently un-addressed issue and major contributor to relapse
    • It is commonly stated that as many as 70 percent of all chemically dependent people who attempt to stop drinking or using will experience relapse, and often more than once
