change a house

My daughter said she does not want to go back to our current house after hospitalization, which will remind her of everything. Should we move to another house to minimize the trigger?


There will always be some kind of trigger, no matter where you go. This will be a good way to practice skills learned in treatment as she steps down to php then iop and continues therapy. The trick is to learn to deal with the triggers while recovering. It's hard work, but worth it in the end. There are even triggers in treatment. They're an inevitable part of life and recovery. I wish you the best. Please keep us posted.
