What is aftercare treatment?
The residential drug and alcohol rehab programme is only the first step in the journey to long-term alcohol and drug addiction recovery. Everything learnt during the addiction rehab is geared towards preparing patients for the ‘real world’ upon successful completion. Once patients leave the clinic their willpower will be tested especially if the ‘triggers of addiction’ remain. To help combat temptation Ocean Recovery Centre provide an aftercare treatment programme that assists patients sobriety. Aftercare plans complement the therapy sessions patients received during the residential rehab programme.
Ocean Recovery Centre tailors aftercare plans for the individual. The aftercare plans help patients avoid relapse in the 12 months after leaving the clinic. The plans factor in the unique challenges that patients will face in ordinary life. Our extended aftercare lasts up to 12 months after inpatient rehab ends.
What factors influence aftercare?
Aftercare plans are designed around the below factors:
- The patient’s age
- The sex of the patient
- The addiction
- Typical patient behaviours
- The patients medical history
- The social environment
- The professional/work environment
- History of the patients rehabilitation
Ocean Recovery Centre have put in place an extensive and experienced aftercare support team. This team is made up of medical professionals, drug and alcohol addiction counsellors, volunteers and other suffers who have been in drug or alcohol rehab. This team make the difference between a successful recovery and relapse especially in the months following the rehab treatment. If patients relapse or are very tempted our support team will provide advice to help ensure the recovery continues.
