Aftercare Programs for Substance Abuse

Alcohol and drug addictions are diseases, just like diabetes or hypertension. They require treatment, lifestyle changes, and preventive maintenance. Individuals and families sometimes think attending a rehab program is enough and that the results are permanent, only to be disappointed when a relapse occurs. Proper addiction aftercare and constant attentiveness can help ensure success.

Aftercare Services & Solutions for Recovery

At Stepping Stone Center for Recovery, both the Detox and Stabilization Program and the Relapse Recovery Program provide a comprehensive, individualized aftercare plan. Each plan is created from knowledge gained through the results from the evaluations, assessments, and treatment provided paired with continued needs to support and encourage continued sobriety.

It’s important to acknowledge that your short treatment stay at Stepping Stone Center for Recovery is not a final cure for the long-term. It is really only the beginning stage of your addiction recovery path. Throughout your stay, you’ll be learning or revitalizing your coping skills that you can use far beyond treatment. The group therapy and counseling provide a solid foundation to move forward with an action plan that addresses exactly what each next step should be to successfully stay in recovery.

The action plan or Aftercare Plan offers recommendations on lifestyle changes and preventive maintenance for your sobriety. As a person in recovery, you’ll need to diligently follow your program and actively manage your disease. The good news is that you don’t have to do this alone. Your treatment team will ensure everything is set up with follow-up appointments, next steps in treatment (as recommended), and connecting you with our alumni community and a Certified Recovery Coach. Below is a list of other things we may help with as you transition from our care to your next step in recovery.

Our highly experienced case managers and aftercare coordinators work with your therapist and family to develop an Aftercare Plan personalized for your specific situation and needs. They are 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 you and your family
  • Locate living arrangements, meetings, and doctors in your area

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 your loved one back to a safe and stable environment.
