Four Circles Recovery Center offers a specialized 21-day relapse prevention track for individuals who have completed treatment at any primary alcohol or drug treatment facility within the past 12 months and relapsed. This 21-day program is based on research-backed approaches, including the Gorski-Cenaps® model, which have proven highly effective in helping individuals break the relapse cycle. Our therapists have received extensive training using the Gorski-Cenaps® model and are using it to help clients identify and manage high-risk situations that lead to relapse in the critical first months of recovery.
