Care With Purpose
Rehab Aftercare Program
Healing from Addiction Begins Here
Once Residential or Outpatient Treatment Is Over, What’s the Next Step?
Finishing a Residential or Outpatient Treatment Program is a big accomplishment. Your progress in treating your substance abuse or mental health disorders has been steady and successful. Health and well-being are within reach and you’re ready to start the next phase of your life.
But what does that look like? How can you prevent relapse?
You need an aftercare plan.
Recovery can be a long process, not one that ends as soon as your treatment program does. If you’ve made exceptional progress in your treatment program, but you’re not quite ready to transition into everyday life, aftercare programs are the ideal option. Through sessions with groups, individual therapy, and a community of recovery peers, you can achieve your goals for sober living and a healthier future.
What Is an Aftercare Program?
An aftercare program is a form of ongoing care that starts after Inpatient or Intensive Outpatient Programs end. This structured form of treatment provides patients with interpersonal skills, coping skills, and stress management capabilities to anticipate the challenges of substance abuse or mental health and overcome them with resolve.
Designed for the early stages of recovery, an aftercare plan focuses on relapse prevention, individual therapy, and peer support groups to learn and practice essential skills for living a sober life. Depending on the patient’s individual needs, an aftercare plan may include sober living facilities or other outpatient treatment options.
Other treatment programs are often successful, but patients may struggle to make the transition from a structured and supervised program into everyday life. Old obstacles and challenges often emerge, creating obstacles to true sobriety.
An aftercare program helps patients access therapeutic treatment and build a network of supportive peers, all on a similar road to drug abuse recovery. Together, these patients learn to adapt to their new lives and routines while balancing the challenges of sobriety. Support groups, sober living, group therapy, and individual counseling may be included to prevent relapse.

The Benefits of
an Aftercare Program
Whether you’re seeking aftercare for yourself or a loved one, it comes with virtually limitless benefits.
Alcohol rehab and drug addiction recovery can feel isolating. Aftercare focuses on groups of patients going through similar struggles to support each other, practice coping skills, and learn from each other’s experiences.
Individual Therapy is essential to rehab programs and aftercare programs alike. These sessions provide addiction treatment for substance abuse without a limiting schedule, ensuring patients can move forward and heal at their own pace.
Patients benefit from a sober support system. Being surrounded by a group of patients in a recovery community and attending addiction treatment together helps the entire group focus and reach goals together. Our treatment center offers compassionate and qualified providers to help along the way.
An Aftercare Program
Supports Lasting Recovery
Recovery is a process. Addiction and mental health challenges are chronic and unrelenting. Giving patients the autonomy, accountability, and support for a healthy and fulfilling life requires long-term care and treatment.
As patients attend our recovery center and work with peers, they can reconnect with themselves and realize their personal goals. Aftercare offers the techniques and experiences to design their lives with clarity of mind and purpose.
