What Is Aftercare?
Finishing a drug or alcohol program is a well-earned achievement, but that doesn’t mean treatment is completely over. Even after completion individuals are still at risk of relapsing. Aftercare is the ongoing process that includes going to 12-step meetings, or either one-on-one or group counseling. Rehab aftercare helps to ensure a successful recovery.
How Long Does Aftercare Last For?
Aftercare can last from just a few short weeks or a lifetime, depending on the patient. Every individual is different, so each aftercare plan should be individualized. There is no one size fits all when it comes to aftercare. Aftercare programs can always be temporarily halted and resumed when necessary.
