We Lead You Forward, Then Follow Your Progress
Your interventionist will work with you to provide case management services and continuing care guidance during rehabilitation, and after rehab is complete. We lead the way, but we also follow your progress moving forward. Whatever bumps you’ll encounter in the road, we’ve been there too, and we can alter the course of treatment to help you continue your recovery.
Our interventionists can arrange further counseling, a sober companion, or a stay in a transitional home such as a sober living community. The treatment center, the interventionist, the addicted person, and the family will all work together to achieve the best possible result.
Recovery from addiction isn’t a “one size fits all” proposition. It’s vital to create a custom-tailored approach based on the unique needs of each unique person. Our case management commitment is to help alcoholics, addicts, and their families find the solution that will work best for them.
There are a variety of continuing care options that can help ensure long-term recovery, and bring peace of mind on a daily basis:
Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP)
After rehab, an individual may continue therapy on an outpatient basis. This can be done at the rehabilitation center that provided the primary treatment, or could be a new outpatient program, depending on the geographic and other needs of the addicted person. If the addict is working or attending school, they may schedule appointments around their activities.
Individual, group or family counseling
Many individuals find that continuing therapy is necessary to their recovery. Therapy can help an addict discover the causes for their behavior and help them learn how to cope with the challenges of life without substances.
A live-in facility for recovering addicts provides structure and expert and peer support after rehab. A sober living house is often recommended. Research shows that the longer an addict stays immersed in recovery, as they do in a residential environment, the better the chances for long-term sobriety. Because most sober living homes are structured in a way where the addicted person can go to work or school by day, yet have a safe and secure therapeutic environment to return to each night, they are an excellent way to re-enter life for those who are newly sober. Residents at a sober living facility will have typically have some house chores, be expected to follow sober living house rules and curfews, and attend meetings or counseling sessions.
For those who wish to return home, but still feel the need to transition back into the world, a sober companion provide personal support on an ongoing basis. Sober companions are empathetic, but trained and experienced individuals who understand the challenges of recovery and provide different levels of care depending on the client’s needs.
Most importantly, there is hope at the end of this journey. Addicts and their families often discover new resources or strengths they never knew they had, or a talent that was suppressed, or something special that fills them with joy or passion. There is a reason that some recovering addicts go on to become counselors, or find a career helping others overcome addiction. They want to share the hope that they found, and give other people the tools and the vision to achieve sobriety for themselves.
