Preventing Against the First Drink can Come Before Recovery from Alcoholism
The defense against the first drinkWhat is called relapse prevention in modern day treatment is what the founders of AA referred to as the defense against the first drink. The twelve step program of AA focus on a relationship with a higher power of one's own understanding was meant to suffice as the pause between the alcoholic mind and the decision to take a drink. Today, teens and adolescents who are going to adolescent alcohol abuse treatment programs learn an entire range of skill sets which act as relapse prevention. From stress management to emotional regulation, addiction education to diet and nutrition, everything learned in treatment is learned as a defense against taking the first drink.
