What to do after Rehab?
When it comes to alcohol and drug abuse, so much of the focus is on getting the individuals into treatment so that they can get the help they need. This is a direct and vital part of the recovery process just as much as medical detox is. However, after treatment is completed, what should those individuals do? Some may benefit from a sober living facility while others may benefit from returning home if their home environment is supportive of their recovery efforts.
AdCare Treatment Centers’ parent company American Addiction Centers is not only a nationwide leader in addiction treatment, but it is a source that supports alumni. Former patients are encouraged to be part of the alumni program for the purpose of being part of a community and in order to get support through their recovery efforts. The alumni program provides exclusive online content, regional and national events, and contact and support from our alumni concierge. AAC even offers a recovery app to contribute to the well-being of individuals after they leave treatment. This is how much we care.
The recovery app helps former patients to retain connections with other alumni, to participate in wellness challenges that help to keep them healthy, monitor progress, maintain a gratitude journal, and gain access to recovery-related content to watch, read, and listen to.
Regardless of whether an individual comes to treatment for alcohol or drug abuse, whether they receive inpatient or outpatient care or have received treatment via telehealth, everyone’s sobriety is equally important to us. And maintaining long-term sobriety is the ultimate goal. This can only be achieved through being connected with supportive and/or likeminded people. Whether they are family or friends, amazing connections from the treatment program, or a 12-step group, people who want to support the sobriety efforts of an individual just out of treatment are welcomed within their inner circle if they want them to be.
AdCare Treatment Centers’ locations are spread across the states of Rhode Island and Massachusetts. Although our programs are both inpatient and outpatient, we offer a specialized program tailored specifically for veterans and first responders, virtual support meetings, family services, and criminal justice services. This shows just how much AdCare wants to support its patients not only during the treatment program, but long-term as well because these services help to build a solid foundation from which to build upon.
AdCare treats everything from alcohol, to opioids, to heroin, and marijuana. And after completing medical detox and a treatment program, it will be time to re-enter the world while in recovery. Whether an individual decides to go to a sober living facility or to return home to a safe and supportive environment, continued support from the AAC alumni program would help to enhance the individual’s sobriety efforts. Facing sobriety alone may be as overwhelming as facing an alcohol use disorder or a substance use disorder. That’s why AdCare Treatment Centers provides patients with the tools they need to live a life of long-term sobriety.
