Aftercare Programs for Substance Abuse

Alcoholism and drug addiction are diseases, just like diabetes or hypertension. They require treatment, lifestyle changes, and preventive maintenance. Patients and family sometimes think our six-week rehab program is enough and that the results are permanent, only to be disappointed when a relapse occurs. Proper addiction aftercare and constant vigilance can help ensure success.

Aftercare Services & Solutions for Recovery

At Stepping Stone Center for Recovery, our Aftercare Plan offers recommendations on lifestyle changes and preventive maintenance for your newfound sobriety. Just as a diabetic needs to watch their diet and take insulin every day, so does the recovering addict or alcoholic need meetings and a strong support program. This might include:

  • Alcoholics Anonymous or Narcotics Anonymous meetings
  • A sober-living house
  • Addiction aftercare groups
  • Psychiatric services
  • Family counseling
  • Vocational counseling
  • Work or school
  • Continued education
  • Physical rehabilitation

Individualized Aftercare Plans and Alumni Support

Our highly experienced case managers work with your therapist and family to develop an Aftercare Plan personalized for your specific situation and needs. A case manager is an important part of your clinical team. They will:

  • Assess your needs upon admission to treatment
  • Stay abreast of your progress through treatment
  • Discuss options with your family
  • Locate living arrangements, meetings, and doctors in your area
  • Develop, with your input, an Aftercare Plan custom-made for you
  • Offer lifetime support by staying connected with our alumni department

A personalized Aftercare Plan is important. No two patients are identical, and no two plans should be the same.

Remember, Addiction is a Family Disease

The patient is often not the only one that needs help. The family system can also be very ill and require recovery. It is highly recommended that the family get involved with support groups, such as Codependents Anonymous or Al-Anon, and seek individual or family counseling. Our goal is to return the treated patient back to a safe and stable environment.

We Call Them Admissions Coordinators. Our Patients Call Them “Lifesavers.”

Our Addiction Helpline is available to anyone struggling with a drug or alcohol problem, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. The specialists on the other end are caring, empathetic folks that have been in your shoes and want to see you get better.
