Aftercare Helps Prevent Relapse
Addiction is a chronic condition, and while we always hope for complete remission, staying well requires commitment and perseverance. When treatment ends, the stress of everyday life, family responsibilities and jobs can trigger the urge to use drugs or alcohol.
Ocala Consulting & Prevention offers aftercare programs that provide the support and structure needed to ease back into everyday life and to maintain long-term abstinence from drinking and drug use.
Patients who have completed treatment receive a discharge plan that outlines steps needed to strengthen recovery. Therapists and counselors assist patients with the discharge plan, which may include:
Connecting with a psychiatrist, psychologist or therapist to continue to work through mental health issues.
Identifying a 12-step support group or other fellowship meetings.
What to do if relapse is imminent.
If clients have transitioned into a sober-living environment, our program monitors progress, attendance and participation in meetings and recovery-oriented activities.
Habits learned in recovery need time to take root and become permanent. Continued commitment and attention are needed to turn those healthy habits into lifelong practices. Aftercare programs provide peer networks to strengthen those skills, explore challenges, celebrate victories and give and receive advice from those walking a similar path.
