When treatment ends, your new life in recovery is just beginning. Getting back to a substance-free lifestyle after treatment is a difficult transition for many people. Addiction physically and mentally changed your body. Using drugs or alcohol was the number one priority over all other responsibilities and significant relationships with loved ones. Treatment helps you plan for life in recovery, how to stay healthy, and teaches you how to avoid a relapse. Applying what you learn in treatment to your new lifestyle will help you achieve a fulfilling recovery.

Aftercare services help you transition into a life of independence and become a productive member of society. With a transitional living program, clients receive counseling, group therapy, and nutrition planning. This aftercare service helps clients ease into living a new sober lifestyle.

Life after treatment can be lonely, scary, and overwhelming. People and places associated with your substance abuse must be avoided. There will always be challenging circumstances in life that can cause intense cravings to use again. In treatment, counselors help you plan strategies to avoid triggers that lessen the risk of relapse. Aftercare services offer counseling, which can encourage you to stay on track with sobriety. Continue to attend group therapy and meetings where new friendships and relationships can develop with other sober people who can also be a support network during difficult times.   

Starting over after treatment takes a lot of hard work, especially after months or years of addiction. Aftercare is an ongoing treatment for addiction and works to maintain recovery from addiction, discover ways to avoid relapse, and live a full life with sustainable relationships and sense of purpose.  

The physical and mental impact of addiction causes psychological changes such as feelings, behaviors, and thoughts. These effects can persist even when the substances are removed. These changes due to addiction reaffirm the need for aftercare services and long-term treatment.
