Relapse Prevention

Relapse prevention at Rosewood begins when the patient enters treatment.  Patients participate in weekly sessions to strengthen the coping skills they’ll need after discharge.  Prior to returning home, they participate in proactive aftercare programming, including alumni activities, social media communities and more to help position each patient to achieve lasting recovery.
