This is why it is becoming best practices for a patient to enter some form of an aftercare program, particular during the first year of recovery.

The Importance of Aftercare Planning & Case Management Services in Addiction Treatment

Studies confirm that relapse is highest in the addict’s first year after addiction treatment. Aftercare services have never been more important as they are now in today ‘s world of easily accessible drugs. The more individuals and their families understand addiction and the long term process of recovery the more prepared they can be for the unexpected challenges that they may face. A patient’s aftercare plan needs to address all of the obstacles that they are likely to face once they complete addiction treatment. This includes relapse prevention, relation dynamics, financial stability, family interaction and overall health stability. The longer that an individual can be engaged in some form of addiction treatment the better the chance of lifetime success.
