What is Aftercare?

Aftercare is a broad term used for a treatment team and patient plan before treatment at a center, increasing the chances for success afterward.

There are various types of aftercare substance abuse programs to choose from. Each individual must tailor plans according to specific needs, location, and available resources.

Relapse is less likely when a solid aftercare plan is not only created, but executed. Recovering patients are more likely to focus on recovery when they have plans in place and additional support at home and in their communities.

Inpatient and outpatient treatment programs are just a small part in the scheme of recovery.

Creating a plan while in PHP or IOP that transitions to aftercare rehab programs are always encouraged.

Personal Aftercare Plan

Once clients step down from inpatient treatment programs and are in partial hospitalization programs or intensive outpatient programs, they begin to engage in more detailed conversations with treatment teams surrounding life after treatment.

Generally, clients take an honest at look everyone and everything involved in their lives. They will be guided to ask themselves some of these common, aftercare-planning questions:

Of course, there are many other questions one might ask themselves during the process of creating aftercare plans. These plans are individualized to each person, especially since each person has unique home, work, and community situations outside of our facility.

The Transition to Aftercare

The process of transitioning from a treatment facility in any capacity can cause a lot of worry. Thoughts and questions run through our clients’ minds. They wonder what it will be like to return to the same places and to see the same people now that they are sober and working diligently to stick with recovery. There may even be difficult emotions to work through such as guilt, shame, fear, and resentment.

These feelings are completely normal. This is why preparing in advance with an aftercare plan is so important for all recovering clients.

There are a variety of steps individuals who are transitioning out of rehab can attempt to relieve some of the challenging thoughts and feelings. Options include meditation, exercise, journaling, talking with a mentor, and creating positive plans for the future.

Most importantly, the time will come when clients must choose which aftercare programs they will become involved in.

Addiction aftercare programs for substance abuse are everywhere. Those living in or near large cities will have more options, although towns and rural areas may also have some to choose from. In the end, everyone will have some sort of aftercare option where they live— even if it is virtual.

According to addiction experts, sponsorship has incredible benefits such as:

Those who are in PHP or IOP programs and can get out in the community, while also remaining in treatment, can start attending AA/NA meetings and develop relationships with  sponsors. Meanwhile, sponsors can prepare sponsees for life after treatment.
