A person who has recently stopped using drugs or alcohol can become triggered by numerous different stimuli. When a recovered person returns home from any of our Narconon Fresh Start treatment programs: Fort Collins New Life Center, Lone Star Victory Ranch, Rainbow Canyon Retreat or Sunshine Summit Lodge they may encounter triggers that set off the urge to use drugs or alcohol. A trigger for a recovering or recovered individual can be something as small as a specific smell or object that brings up memories of their substance using past. Needless to say, if something as minor as smell can trigger a person than being in specific places where they used or spending time with people they used with are very big triggers. These triggers create a spark in their mind reminding them of their past, whether good or bad, and causes psychological stress. The counselors at Narconon Fresh Start drug rehab centers have a number of ways to help their client’s push past these triggers without losing control and experiencing a relapse.
