Description

by Claudia Black

 

Relapse data has long been available, but in this video, Dr. Claudia Black brings a new insight and overview to the issues of relapse. Dr. Black begins by using an analogy -- that of the sinking of the Titanic and the loss of its passengers. Of the more than 2200 people aboard, 1513 would perish. This was the ship that was unsinkable and, even as the ship was going down, people assumed that they were in no immediate danger. In asking a group in early recovery to put themselves aboard that ship, most would be certain that they would be saved. 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.

The four "icebergs" that can sink recovery are identified as:

    CONTROL: The addict/alcoholic, in initial recovery, is willing to surrender to the drug of his addiction but continues to control people, places and things; this ultimately sets him up for a dry drunk and the active relapse.
    FEAR OF FEELINGS: Guilt -- about lying, cheating, how one has treated others; Fear -- about facing the
     world sober and not being able to recoup what one once had; Anger -- with oneself for not being able control drug and alcohol use; Sadness -- for what one has lost to the disease.
  • SECRETS: Sexual behavior; physical and/or sexual abuse; secrets about relationships or sexual orientation; other drugs that one has used but will not acknowledge; criminal activity; and financial problems. The shame or deception involved in having secrets is a frequently unaddressed issue and a major contributor to relapse.

Dr. Black uses stories and electronic graphics to underline key points that deal with understanding and preventing relapse.
