The Role of the 4 R’s in Addiction Treatment


Resilience is about adapting to stress and change in a way that helps you to become a stronger person over time. Battling drug and alcohol addictions is hard, but being resilient will help make it a little easier.


Roles are about having a meaningful sense of your purpose and who you are outside of your drug or alcohol addiction. Try to immerse yourself in roles and in the community, whether it’s joining a sports team or a book club, to help you stay sober.


Relapse means that your drug or alcohol use has returned and is part of the recovery. There will always be ups and downs, but it’s important to remember that it is all part of the process and that you will get through it.


Response is a term used to refer to your improvement in your addiction as a result of treatment. Everyone is different and some addiction treatments may work better for you than others. As a result, it’s important to understand that and stick with what works best for you and your personal needs.
