Avoid Relapse After Treatment
Ongoing attention paid to your psychological well-being and mental state is important, and the best way to do that is to construct a safe life for yourself after cocaine addiction treatment. That means creating a schedule for yourself that includes employment at a job that is supportive of your clean and sober lifestyle, finding a home that is in a safe area unstained by drug addiction and attending aftercare services that provide you with ongoing guidance and support.

Aftercare to Avoid Relapse
Create a Positive Work and Home Life to Avoid Cocaine Relapse
If your family is far away and you don’t yet know people in recovery in your area, you will need to find a place to live that you can afford or a room in a house with other roommates who will understand and support your continued recovery. Connections through those you meet at cocaine rehab may help, as will online searches, 12-step meetings and good old-fashioned word of mouth.
In the same way, you will need to find employment at a job where drugs and alcohol are not used regularly. For some, waiting tables or cooking in restaurants that serve alcohol is not a good idea in the first year or so until they get used to being around alcohol without drinking. Graveyard shifts, construction jobs, fishing boats and other professions where many often imbibe before or during their shift may prove to be too much temptation for those in early recovery.
Find a job that provides you with steady hours, low stress and money that will pay your bills when you leave cocaine rehab.
