Part of the recovery process is about recognizing relapse triggers and learning how to deal with them in a healthy way. A trigger is something that sets off a memory of an addict’s past use, transporting the person back to the event of her/his addiction.


Triggers are uniquely personal; different things trigger different people. It is recommended that addicts in early recovery avoid situations, people, places or things that trigger the flashbacks / memories and make them want to use again.


Often, this is exactly why we recommend addicts seek detox and treatment outside of the city in which they are from—away from familiar people and distractions that might derail them on their path towards recovery and a better life.


Diamond House Detox has been home to many San Francisco residents seeking a safe private Detox away from the Bay Area. At about 70 miles (1 hour and 15-minute drive) outside of the City, Diamond House Detox is a great choice for loved ones whose lives depend upon recovery. Here is why we are a sought-after detox facility for many San Francisco residents:
