When a sponsee relapses, it can be a difficult and disheartening experience for both the sponsee and their sponsor. However, it is important for sponsors to remember that relapse is a common occurrence in recovery, and it does not mean that the sponsee has failed. As a sponsor, there are several steps you can take to support your sponsee through their relapse and help them get back on track.
Some suggest providing non-judgmental support and encouraging your sponsee to be honest about their relapse. They say it is important to create a safe and supportive space for your sponsee to share their struggles and emotions without fear of judgment or shame. Once they have shared their experience, it is important to help them identify what led to the relapse and work together to create a plan to prevent it from happening again in the future.
Tonight we talk about dealing with a sponsee who has relapsed.
