Addiction is difficult for all people involved. It takes an incredible amount of courage to start taking the steps towards living a sober life. After working so hard to conduct a successful substance abuse intervention for your loved one, the last thing you want to see is a relapse. Just as intervention is only the first step on the long road to recovery, rehab is also not the end of the journey. This is why aftercare is a useful tool to foster a substance-free life.
Why Is Aftercare Important?
Aftercare is a critical component on the road to sobriety. This is because it allows a recovering addict to remove any doubt about staying clean. Also called continuing care, addiction aftercare involves anything from a brief check-in to group therapy. The point of continuing care is to provide recovering addicts with the resources they need to experience success.
It has been scientifically proven that continuing care has a positive impact on recovery from addiction. This is because programs are usually very structured and offer important coping skills. Furthermore, aftercare helps to keep recovering addicts away from criminal activities.
