Cindy, our son completed rehab 3 months ago and had 4 months sober. Yesterday he relapsed after his girlfriend broke up with him. Is relapse common?

Cindy, writes:
Getting a teen to stop using alcohol is only the first step. Alcohol use fills an emotional need. That need has to be satisfied in a healthy way for your teen to be able to stop drinking. Relapsing after treatment is common. It's not considered a treatment failure. Most relapses occur within the first 3 months after treatment. Most often, teens need to go through treatment more than once and follow a long recovery process.
