I have considered for myself that a “relapse” is to mean that I have returned to continual drug use with no immediate end in sight. And a “slip” for me indicates that I have an intention to remain in the recovery process, but my program needs some adjustments.

I have heard from some people that in there opinion, there is no difference between a relapse and a slip. So for me the difference is my intentioned course of action during and after drug use.
