  5. When a drug addict relapses?
Asked: 2018-05-22 08:09:14
I think my friend has relapsed. What do I do?

Relapse rates are around 40% - 60% in the US, so it is possible. It may have just been a moment of weakness though so try not to chastise him or her. If she’s feeling lower than usual, be there for her.

Check in with her and support her. She may not want to admit that she has relapsed and it may not mean she’s back using again. See if she wants to go to a rehab facility or ask what she needs to help her at this point.
