Relapse Prevention

Aftercare & Planning

We would like to think that completing a treatment program will "cure” the disease of addiction. However, recovery is a lifelong pursuit and success is dependent on the individual’s active follow-up with the aftercare plan developed by the client, therapist, and other healthcare professionals prior to graduating treatment. The purpose of the after care plan is to help the addict eliminate the temptation to use again. While in treatment the addict is provided a safe, structured and secured environment. However when the addict graduates and returns to their life they are faced with many of the same issues they had prior to treatment - legal, financial, emotional, family, relationships, or job placement.

Although, the client has the responsibility and accountability to follow the aftercare plan, The River Source staff monitors the client and the progress of the aftercare plan. We offer clients who have graduated our 30, 60, and or 90-day program the option of participating in anyone of our outpatient and aftercare services for up to one year. Services include: use of the naturopathic clinic, sobriety checks and weekly groups at no cost, or you may partake in our online after care.  At The River Source, we believe that relapse prevention is achieved through a well-managed after care plan.

Relapse is a reality no matter how much one thinks they have a handle on their disease and in most cases addicts and alcoholics who relapse do so within the first 18 months after treatment.No matter how much the addict wishes to stay sober “action” will be required and commitment needs to be strong enough to get up and do what it takes. Once the addict quits doing the things they need to do for their recovery, they will find themselves in relapse.

If you or a loved one is looking for treatment for any type of substance abuse, please call NOW: 1-888-687-7332 or 480-827-0322 (your call is confidential)

Testimonials Dwne erro

" Heroin had brought me to The River Source and me being willing to come. I personally did not choose The River Source, I asked my dad for help and he looked into a few places and talked to Liz on a regular basis and he and me liked what you guys had to offer us. My experience was amazing. When I first got here I wanted to leave. I didn’t believe the 12 steps would help at all and I couldn’t comprehend anything that was going on. But, then I was honest, open minded and willing to do whatever..."
