Relapse Prevention

Midlands Mental Health Clinic offers a Relapse Prevention Workshop for individuals in Mullingar, Portaloise and Tullamore. Change is possible – let us empower you.

Midlands Mental Health Clinic has developed this relapse prevention programme for anyone struggling with the thought of an addiction relapse. The aim of the programme is to keep you out of the woods and finally living a healthy life.

Our workshop is centred around recognising and therefore understanding the patterns and emotions that lead to a relapse. We can show you how to anticipate and subsequently control the threat of a relapse. In addition, we will also show you what to do if you find yourself at the edge.

We offer an 8-week relapse prevention programme in Mullingar, Tullamore and Portlaoise.
