Treatment is only the first step in the recovery process. When treatment ends, the real journey begins. The time immediately following treatment can be a dangerous one – once you are out of the safe environment that treatment provides, it can be easy to fall into old patterns. But at West Coast Rehab, we are invested in your long term success and are here to help you achieve long term sobriety. That’s why we offer strong aftercare programs to help you transition successfully out of treatment and back into your life.
What is aftercare?
Aftercare refers to the treatment that you will need after your stay. While inpatient treatment is a great first step, additional treatment and support is needed to help you on the road to recovery.
What treatment options does West Coast Rehab offer?
At West Coast Rehab, we believe in individualized treatment – both during your stay with us and after. Towards the end of your inpatient stay, you will meet with an aftercare specialist and come up with your aftercare plan. This may include:
- Intensive outpatient
- Sober living
- Continued sessions with your therapist(s)
- Referrals to outside clinicians
- Referrals to community resources
- Support groups and/or 12 step meetings
Why is aftercare important?
The transition from treatment back into “real life” can be a challenging and stressful one. Without the right tools and support, relapses can and do happen. That’s why it’s important to commit to a comprehensive aftercare plan to continue your path to long term sobriety and happiness.
