Relapse

/re.lapse/

n.noun

A relapse is the reoccurrence of negative behaviors that were thought to have been removed from an individual’s lifestyle choices. For instance, a person who successfully graduated from a rehabilitative center for heroin abuse, may in fact, relapse by consuming heroin prior to reaching a state of recovery. 

Relapsing is always a possibility for those who are in a state of recovery, and therefore, should always be recognized as a potential threat. Those who feel as though they are fully ‘recovered,’ from a negative behavior, are more likely to relapse, and partake in that behavior if they ignore the threats of repeating behaviors. For this reason, it is crucial for those in recovery to recognize the possibility of relapse, additionally taking further steps to prevent the possibility of the specific, relapse.
