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 rehab plan developed by the client, therapist, and other healthcare professionals prior to graduating treatment. The purpose of the continuing care plan is to help the addict eliminate the temptation to use again. While in treatment the addict is provided a safe, structured and secure 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.
How Our Continuing Care Program Works
Although the client has the responsibility and accountability to follow the continuing care plan, The River Source staff monitors the client and the progress of the continuing care plan. We offer clients who have graduated our 30, 60, and or 90-day program or have completed the full continuum of care, the option of participating in any one of our continuing care services. Services may include: use of the naturopathic clinic, sobriety checks, alumni accountability, weekly groups and/or 12 step meetings, or you may partake in our online continuing care. Please note The River Source alumni will be held accountable to the same policies & procedures and/or house rules while on the property as they were when a client. The River Source also reserves the right to not allow alumni on the property if non-compliant with policies & procedures and/or house rules.
Continuing Care Offers Support to Help Prevent Relapse
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.
