Miami Aftercare Services

No matter how thoroughly people are educated about the inherent risks involved in the recreational and habitual abuse of any chemical substance, the development of addiction almost always comes as a surprise. Nobody sets out on his or her journey of drinking and drugging with the intention of becoming addicted, but many times this is the outcome. The characteristics of the disease of addiction allow this to occur because one of the fundamental attributes of addiction is that it convinces those who are afflicted that they do not have it and that they are in control.

This is one of the most baffling parts of the disease of addiction and it has allowed for many alcoholics and addicts to continue drinking or drugging long after they had lost all control.

What’s worse is that once addiction has set in, getting sober is not always as easy as just making the decision. Making the decision to get sober is the first major step, but many recovering drug addict and alcoholics will attest to the fact that they had numerous slips before finally attaining sobriety. These slips are not a necessary part of recovery but are the byproduct of how powerful the disease of addiction can be.

" This is one of the most baffling parts of the disease of addiction and it has allowed for many alcoholics and addicts to continue drinking or drugging long after they had lost all control. "

There can be numerous reasons that can lead someone back to the drink or drug, from not wanting to deal with the withdrawal symptoms to any number of outside stressor, or even the disease itself convincing the person that they are not addicted and it was merely a phase. No matter what the reason, the results are usually the same, disastrous for them and those closest to them.

Fortunately, this does not need to be the case and with the correct treatment and support, lasting sobriety is possible. A good start in the treatment process is attending an effective inpatient or outpatient program, like the ones offered at Holistic Recovery Centers. However, attending and completing one of these types of programs is only a beginning and does necessitate a cure from alcoholism or drug addiction. As there is no cure, continued support and treatment are highly suggested. Experts assert that recovery is a lifelong process that is never truly finished, and it requires some level of ongoing effort and treatment as well as a long-term strategy for its continuation. At Holistic Recovery Centers, our aftercare planning services address these continued needs and help patients to maintain their sobriety after they have completed our residential inpatient or outpatient program.

Why an Aftercare Plan is Important

The concept of aftercare stands in direct opposition to the idea that addiction treatment programs offer a quick fix for addiction, meaning that they offer some type of magic bullet that will cure drug addiction or alcoholism. The term aftercare, as used here, implies care after an addiction treatment program, although in a broader sense aftercare is usually used to describe an individual’s plan for continued treatment following an initial health or medical treatment program. For instance, let’s say you were to get a surgery of some sort. After that surgery the doctors wouldn’t just put you in a car, sending you on your way, telling you to have a merry life. No, at some point in the immediate future they would have a follow-up and if the surgery was serious enough, they would make plans for your rehabilitation, setting forth a strategy so that the issue that resulted in the surgery would not reoccur. Given this, why shouldn’t the same occur for drug treatment? Well, that is what Holistic Recovery Centers’ aftercare program was created to do. Our aftercare program offers our patients the ability to create a plan that they can implement into their lives that will reinforce the tools, skills, and strategies that they acquired throughout our recovery program. This is to further help our patients sustain long-term and lasting sobriety well after they have completed one of our residential inpatient or outpatient programs.

At its core aftercare services are a strategy for increasing the longevity of one’s recovery upon completion of an addiction treatment program. Aftercare planning is important because studies have shown that without some form of continued treatment, rates of relapse upon completion of a rehabilitation program are disparagingly high. One particular study shows that up to 35% of individuals who complete some form of treatment program will return to treatment within the following year. This same study showed that the time period when they were most susceptible to relapse was within their first 90 days after leaving treatment. For those who were not involved in some sort of continued care these 90 days can be an extremely treacherous time. This is why Holistic Recovery Centers offers aftercare services. We hope to minimize our patient’s chances of relapsing and cut down on recidivism.

Why You Need a Plan for When You Leave Rehab

Throughout the course of their addiction, many individuals developed a routine that often consisted of seeking and consuming drugs. This is what they knew and after years of performing these same actions like clockwork, they can become very ingrained into the person’s psyche, making it difficult to break these habits.

When an individual achieves sobriety through a treatment program and then returns home, they may be confused as what to do now that their entrenched behaviors are no longer applicable to their new lifestyle. They may be unsure of what to do with themselves, unsure of how to pass the time, or even unsure of how to be sober while at home, with friends, or at work. Part of the process of recovery involves a learning of how to do just about everything sober. This can be a particularly difficult task as many people spent years performing every task in their lives, from the mundane to the complex, under the influence. However, Holistic Recovery Centers’ aftercare program offers the structure necessary in order for our patients to meet these challenges and make the transition back into a sober lifestyle as easy and painless as possible.
