Relapse
Abstract
Relapse means that the symptoms you had before being treated have come back or gotten worse. It can also mean you are not able to do as many of your everyday activities. Relapse is common for people who have a mental illness or a substance use disorder. It is even more common for people who have both. This pamphlet explains what you can do to prevent relapse. Information about common triggers and early warning signs of relapse is provided.
