Community Integration Benefits to the Recovery Process
Isolation in Addiction
Life after addiction treatment still comes with obstacles that the patient and their family will need to overcome. With a comprehensive addiction treatment aftercare plan that incorporates the various areas of the patient’s lives the path to recovery is much more obtainable. At one time in the past, housing options were very limited for people suffering from drug or alcohol addiction. These individuals had to reside with family members or in an institution. Today there are various forms of supported housing options available to individuals who suffer from substance use disorder. The recommendation for the best possible outcomes is long term engagement in a sober living or aftercare program.

Twelve Step Programming is now available in many towns around the country. They provide structure and support on a long term basis for those suffering from various forms of addiction. We provide daily transportation to various 12 step meetings to help engage the patient into the recovery community and build a support network while they are still addiction treatment. Research shows that daily interaction with support groups increases the chance of staying sober dramatically for those suffering from drug or alcohol addiction.
When it comes to recovery from drug or alcohol addiction there is no single cure for staying in recovery. All an addict and the family can do is to continue to work on the troublesome areas of life that continue to cause a retreat back into the grips of addiction. Addiction Treatment at Lighthouse Recovery institute is the most effective way to stop substance use disorder.
