The model does not show an end to the process of change and suggests that a person is ever-progressing in the cycle. Logically, Relapse , or recurrence of previously undesired behaviors, would follow Maintenance of the newly acquired behaviors.
When one Relapse , they may not be aware of it i. Precontemplation or may go through the Precontemplation phase quickly to being aware of the problem i.
In Drug and Alcohol Recovery , this model is popular to help patients understand their pending journey or the journey they have made to the current point. I congratulate them for making it to the Contemplation stage and being self-aware that they Relapsed. Empowerment comes from helping the client to reflect on what did not work in the Maintenence stage and helping them to correct that when taking Action.
Again, I stress, building resiliency including a support system and healthy coping mechanisms is a very important task during the Action stage.
