27 Oct Aftercare for Success
Addiction rehabilitation is an ongoing process that requires a lifetime of effort and maintenance. Checking into a residential facility is an important step, but it is only the first step on the road to recovery. Once residential treatment is completed, it is essential that clients participate in an aftercare program so they can continue to take advantage of the support system they established during their stay. There are two stages of aftercare offered by Therapia and each one will help clients travel further down the path of recovery.
· Advanced Group Therapy – This series of evening sessions helps individuals attain the skills necessary to maintain long- term sobriety. This program lasts for 90 days after the initial residential period is completed. Clients gain support and perspective by meeting with others who have recently finished residential treatment and are dealing with the same issues of readjustment. Random drug testing is also provided.
· Alumni Services/Lifetime Contract – Recovering addicts will be more successful if they stay active in a 12-step program for the rest of their lives. Therapia provides an ongoing program that clients can participate in person or via Skype. This allows clients to not only continue their own recovery process, but to aid others as well.
These programs are part of Therapia’s all-inclusive residential package so clients can participate in them at no additional cost. Participating in a follow-up program doubles the success rate among recovering addicts. Any individual who is looking to make a long-term change in their life can find the tools necessary to do so in aftercare.
In addition to the programs offered by Therapia, clients may wish to participate in other kinds of follow-up programs available in their communities. Holistic programs dealing with meditation, physical fitness, and nutrition have been shown to be very helpful to those in recovery. These are just a few of the options available to those looking to add another dimension to their recovery.
