I completed rehab about 8 months ago but relapsed three weeks ago. I already feel my life getting out of control again. Is it normal to need to do rehab more than once? I feel as if I failed but relapsing.

Yes. There are a lot of people who go to rehab more than once. You will only have failed if you give up.

Addiction is a brain disease, so it is not uncommon for someone to relapse. Many people end up going to rehab multiple times before obtaining lasting sobriety or recovery. You definitely did not fail by relapsing. It takes a lot of determination and leveling of pride to come back for help after a relapse. Addiction does not allow for choice of whether to use or not. Never stop fighting for you life!
