Drug rehabilitation aims to help individuals recover from substance abuse and lead drug-free life. However, relapse, the return to drug use after abstinence, is a significant challenge in recovery.
Relapse can occur due to various factors, including environmental triggers, stress, underlying mental health issues, and inadequate coping skills. Drug rehabilitation programs must address these factors comprehensively, offering support, counseling, and relapse prevention strategies. By understanding the complex nature of addiction and implementing effective relapse prevention measures, drug rehabilitation programs can increase the likelihood of long-term recovery and sustained sobriety.
Clinical TrialTo address this issue, researchers investigated the connection between sleep disorders and the likelihood of relapse in individuals who use substances. The researchers also looked into the potential underlying mechanisms and corresponding interventions.
392 male substance users participated in the trial and completed questionnaires on sleep disorders, quality of life, and relapse inclination. Additionally, 60 participants with sleep disorders were randomly selected and divided into two groups: intervention and control. The intervention group underwent a 12-week program of Health Qigong specifically designed to treat sleep disorders, while the control group continued their regular work.
