The goal of aftercare is to maintain your sobriety, so abstinence is expected. However, relapses are common for many people recovering from addiction. If you suffer a relapse or slip, you should not see this as a reason to abandon your aftercare programme. Instead, inform your therapist, counsellor or sponsor as quickly as you can, and use your existing aftercare framework to get back on track.
