Relapse is a major problem facing counselors in addiction treatment since most addicts under treatment often crave for the drug, and if there is no effective follow-up, they are likely to resume the use of the drug. In most cases, the counselors are likely to feel frustrated, discouraged and pessimistic about their work. To avoid this, it is important to ensure that the rates of relapse are checked with adequate measures. First, it is important to ensure that the patients are exposed to lifestyle factors such as stress levels, balance, cravings as well as urges. When the addicts are exposed to these situations but monitored to avoid taking the drug, then the model will effectively ensure that the addicts anticipate relapse through recognition and coping with several determinants as well as covet antecedents. This will ensure that the rates of relapse are minimal, which in turn reduces the probability of the counselor being discouraged from their approaches to treating addicts.
