Continuous, long-term sobriety is always our ultimate goal for every patient. We know that upon leaving the safety of a treatment facility, life can appear overwhelming with responsibilities and problems. You can never beat addiction, but you can practice maintenance and care to keep dark thoughts at bay and lead a happy and full life. One of the best ways to maintain your sobriety after primary treatment is through Divine Detox’s aftercare program.
What is Aftercare?
Aftercare consists of continued meetings, phone calls, and check-ins after you’ve completed your drug and alcohol treatment. Because the issues associated with addiction don’t instantly end after you’ve completed your inpatient treatment, aftercare programs were designed in order to offer continual care and monitoring.
Aftercare programs are weekly or monthly meetings where people share their struggles, triumphs, learn more about addiction and continue their growth. It’s recommended that anyone leaving a treatment program, including outpatient, participate in aftercare for at least the first six months of recovery.
