What Are Aftercare Services?
Aftercare services help individuals in recovery from drug or alcohol addiction maintain their progress even after completing a formal treatment program. Lifestyle changes, healthy coping skills, and participating in 12-step meetings are just a few of the ways that those in recovery can continue to heal.
Addiction is a chronic disease, and many of those in recovery will relapse after a period of sobriety. However, relapse is not a failure, and it doesn’t mean that treatment hasn’t been effective. Having compassion for relapse is essential, as is having a place to turn once a relapse occurs or if the temptation is high. Our aftercare program provides those in recovery with a resource for relapse prevention. Our case management services also make it easy to return to treatment if a relapse has occurred.
We are committed to providing excellent client care. In our effort to provide exceptional service, we employ trained specialists who work with clients to promote their recovery goals. Utilizing motivational interviewing techniques and relying on the MATRIX Model, patients are constantly assessed for their readiness to change and maintain a life free of substance use. We provide small group settings that promote supportive and integrative group styles.
What to Expect from Our Addiction Aftercare Program
Our Aftercare program typically consists of 12 sessions. These take place once a week over the course of a three-month period. Additionally, patients can participate in individual sessions once monthly to stay on track with their recovery needs. Our pre-approved curriculum relies on evidence-based practices and the MATRIX Model to assist clients in learning about their addiction, preventing relapse, and living healthy lives.
