Aftercare Programs are ongoing, follow up services for individuals who have completed a chemical dependency or substance abuse treatment program.
Care Addiction Center believes in a strong continuum of care that will foster lasting recovery after you have completed Intensive Outpatient Program/Outpatient Program or a program from another substance abuse facility.
At Care Addiction Center we use a team approach to our Aftercare Program. Some of the goals of our Aftercare Program are:
To maintain recovery from drugs and/or alcohol.
Identify skills to prevent relapses from occurring.
Build a support system.
Aftercare occurs every Wednesday evening from 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm and is facilitated by one of our certified counselors.
In our Aftercare Program patients will be able to remain connected and accountable in a lower, less intensive level of care. Groups are didactic format which promotes healthy discussions while continuing to support your recovery.
DON'T UNDER ESTIMATE AFTERCARE
In the United States, an estimated 2.15 million people (9% of the population) have a substance use disorder (SUD). According to statistics, the rates of relapse are extremely high among people with an SUD—ranging from 37% to 56%.
Research finds that when people take advantage of aftercare services, their rates of relapse decrease.
Unfortunately, only about half of people utilize aftercare services and even fewer people complete their aftercare programs. If you are planning on entering or leaving a treatment program, make sure to plan ahead and have an aftercare program in place.
