Long-Term GoalsSustained Recovery Takes Planning

The last day of official treatment is the first day of your new life – but you won’t be alone. You’re part of our alumni network. You’ll have a discharge folder that includes all your medical records, clinical information gathered by your primary therapist, and the one document that can make all the difference in your sustained sobriety: your Aftercare Plan. While your plan will be custom designed to meet your needs, all successful Aftercare Plans include the following key elements:

  • Community Support
    • Peer
    • Family
    • Professional
  • Medication for mental health as necessary
  • Medical care to keep your body strong and resilient for ongoing recovery
  • Personal Fulfillment
    • Employment
    • Spiritual Development
    • Hobbies, Exercise, Recreation, Wellness

Your Aftercare Plan will include the specific ways you’ll check all those boxes. From granular details like where you’re planning to get your exercise, practice hobbies, or keep developing your stress management techniques, to large questions like where you’ll live, where you’ll go to peer support meetings, and where you’ll receive medical and psychiatric care, all your bases will be covered. You’ll walk out the door with names, dates, addresses, appointment times, and everything you need to keep the momentum you gained during your time with us.

Aftercare Helps Prevent Relapse

Statistics show the longer you stay in treatment, the lower your chances of relapse. Think of Aftercare as a way of staying in treatment as you return to life out in the world. It’s a different kind of treatment. One that requires your commitment, discipline, and diligence. It requires you to be self-managing, self-aware, and completely honest. It requires humility and work. It does not, however, require you to do it alone. It requires the opposite. Take another look at the essential elements of a successful Aftercare program – peer support, family support, hobbies – and notice they all involve the positive input of other people. Take the old saying it takes a village to raise a child and transpose it to sobriety, and you’ll understand the role community plays in your sustained sobriety. Our Alumni Network offers you that level of community commitment. We’ll help you find that safe place wherever you plan to live after your time with us.
