WHY AFTERCARE PROMOTES LONG-TERM SOBRIETY

When someone attends an addiction treatment program, they can often be concerned about the prospect of returning home. Although achieving sobriety is challenging when in rehab, it can often be more so when patients return to the everyday environments they associate with substance abuse. So how do rehab centers provide support during the transition from rehab to recovery? The answer is with aftercare drug treatment. WHAT IS AFTERCARE DRUG TREATMENT? Aftercare alcohol and drug treatment provides patients with a structured program they can follow while remaining at home. At Elevate, each aftercare alcohol and drug treatment program is devised specifically for each patient and is based on their responses to various treatments and therapies received during residential care. A noteworthy point is that Elevate patients don’t have to pay any additional fees for an after care program, which are available to them for as long as they are required. AFTERCARE DRUG TREATMENT PROVIDES INVALUABLE ONE-ON-ONE SUPPORT When patients have attended a residential treatment program, they will have developed strong trust-based relationships with their therapists. This element of treatment is continued in aftercare so as to provide consistency a recovering addict can learn to depend upon. In


aftercare programs for substance abuse, counselors are available by phone, via a secure internet connection or in person as and when recovering patients require extra support. SUPPORT GROUP REFERRALS Support from others who completely understand a person’s situation is important to someone recovering from addiction. Elevate offers support group referrals as part of our post-treatment plans so that individuals can choose the most appropriate groups in their local area. It is important to have people close at hand who can help people through the tough times and support groups have been shown to promote a longer recovery as a result of this support.

THE LAST PHASE OF REHAB Addiction treatment doesn’t end when someone leaves the center. It is an illness that develops over time and has significant effects on a person’s physical, emotional and psychological well-being. At Elevate, we consider aftercare to be the fourth phase of treatment and the only one that may be required for an indefinite period of time. Ultimately, everyone has their own unique route to travel when it comes to addiction to drugs or alcohol. Some may find it easy to make the significant changes required to maintain sobriety, whereas others may struggle to cope. An after care program provides support at whatever level the individual requires and delivers it in real-time while they remain at home.
