What is Aftercare Treatment?
Addiction is a chronic disease that does not end when treatment does. Aftercare is a form of continuing care for addiction treatment. This level of care immediately follows inpatient drug rehab or intensive outpatient rehab. Addiction aftercare plans come in a variety of styles, and each one intends to provide additional support and aid as a continuation of the foundation built during rehabilitation.
After the completion of an addiction treatment center, patients often need support in transitioning to the next phase of their recovery. Whether they decide to enroll in a sober living house or to return home, arranging aftercare services is an essential part of long-term success. At Lighthouse Recovery Institute, we offer extensive, comprehensive aftercare services to ensure that individuals continue to receive the substance abuse counseling they need after completing treatment.
What Type of Services Can You Find In Our Aftercare Program?
The treatment options provided to prevent relapse and expand healthy coping strategies are individualized. Everyone’s needs and goals for their recovery are unique. To assist patients in identifying their next step after treatment, we offer comprehensive aftercare planning and case management services to see how to reinforce their recovery best.
These are one-on-one therapy sessions between the patient and therapist to discuss progress made during treatment and offer ongoing support.
Small group sessions, which vary in frequency depending on individual preference where individuals share experience, build coping skills, and work on support networks.
Ideal for those living at sober houses or transitioning back home. Our outpatient programs offer individual and group therapy for additional support.
Developing an Aftercare Plan
As a part of aftercare planning and services, Lighthouse Recovery Institute’s staff assists with providing touring and transitioning to certified sober living recovery residences. In other cases, the clinical team works with patients and their families to create a plan for transitioning home or to independent living. This process may involve connecting patients with counselors for continued therapy in their aftercare destination or conducting family sessions to identify boundaries and expectations for patients who will be residing at home after treatment.
In addition to assisting with housing transitions, we help in continuing their care following completion of treatment, with medical, therapeutic, and vocational needs.
Case management assists patients in scheduling appointments with appropriate providers to continue medication management, therapy, medical treatment, or any other service that may benefit an individual for their recovery.
Who Benefits from Aftercare Treatment?
Before completing inpatient drug or alcohol rehab, each patient has an individual relapse prevention plan, housing arrangements, a list of community resources, and information about local recovery support meetings and twelve-step fellowships. If a patient has a dual diagnosis, they will also have all necessary scheduled medical and psychiatric appointments post-treatment arranged. These are enormous benefits for addicts who often do not feel prepared to re-enter the world after substance abuse treatment. By assisting them by contributing to a comprehensive relapse prevention plan, individuals can have increased motivation to avoid relapse, social support, accountability for their behaviors, and support during high-risk situations.
Our commitment is to ensure that patients finish our comprehensive addiction treatment center with all the tools and resources they need to maintain optimal well-being and to grow in their recovery.
Life After Addiction Treatment: Alumni Programs
Patients who have graduated the program are welcome to attend groups when they feel they need additional support or to stay connected to the recovery community. Graduates are also encouraged to attend events, such as our weekend activities, dodgeball tournaments, and weekly community twelve-step meetings and annual holiday celebrations. We are very proud of our alumni and their progress, and enjoy having guest alumni speakers for our current patients.
Admissions and clinical staff regularly contact alumni and their families to check in, offer support, and hear about their successes in recovery. Our aftercare programming services help to set everyone on the path for success that is now celebrating their newfound freedom from the grip of addiction.
