Why Go To Aftercare?
Here at Serenity Light Recovery, we have developed an aftercare program available to all clients who successfully complete treatment for one year, post-discharge. Aftercare is a general term for those services and activities used to maintain sobriety after discharge. For some clients, aftercare may be part of a lifelong health plan, where their needs will change, with time. Serenity Light Recovery’s aftercare program consists of a weekly aftercare group meeting, which will be the foundation of connecting with others at sober events and activities. Following up with others in a similar stage and path of recovery assists in accountability, as well as helps to foster new friendships.
What Is Aftercare?
Once you have been through a detox program and a residential rehab program, the next step is an aftercare program. However, while you understand what addiction rehab and detox are, you’re not really sure what an aftercare program is. Simply put, aftercare is an ongoing treatment program. During aftercare, you continue to get treatment for your addiction. In doing so, you are more likely to remain sober.
