What Is Aftercare After Recovery?

What Is Women’s Aftercare?

Planning for relapse prevention begins on the first day of enrollment into an inpatient treatment program and will be updated as your treatment progresses. From this perspective, aftercare is a central component of every addiction treatment program. Aftercare programs can help clients with many of their continuing care needs, including:

  • Locating sober living homes
  • Primary care visits with your doctor
  • Continuing psychiatric therapy
  • Substance use disorder programming
  • Mutual help meetings

Aftercare programs offer ongoing support to help promote sustainable sobriety. Participating in support group meetings or outpatient therapy can help you or your loved one in recovery return to everyday life with a strong foundation.

The Purpose of Sober Living Homes

Another potential aftercare option is a temporary sober living home. These residences can support the transition back into daily life if an individual’s home life does not support a sober lifestyle. Each home will have a set of rules that must be followed, like curfews, limited social hours, chores, and participation in a treatment program.

The local Alcohol Anonymous and Narcotics Anonymous community is available as part of an aftercare program, and their meetings can be a requirement in some sober living homes.

How Aftercare Assists with the Transition from an Inpatient Treatment Program

The residency program at Hammocks on the Edisto is 30 days in length, but it can be shorter or longer depending on your needs and willingness to participate in the program. To be discharged, residents must meet certain criteria:

  • Completion of an inpatient treatment program based on initial screening
  • Meet ASAM PPC-II Discharge criteria and transition into an outpatient program
  • Complete all treatment goals and recommendations based on feedback from your treatment team
  • Development of a relapse prevention program that supports continuing treatment
  • Involvement in outpatient and aftercare programs

We utilize these measures to ensure that clients are in a good place to maintain their sobriety after treatment.
