Aftercare Planning

Aftercare planning is a mainstay of effective addiction treatment, as it allows patients to receive ongoing support after successfully completing an outpatient program. Aftercare can entail different types of services, including sober living homes, periodic meetings with a drug counselor and psychotherapist, and ongoing attendance at group recovery meetings.

The key is to have a sustainable plan in place after discharge from a structured treatment program, follow that plan, and modify it as necessary.

As NIDA reports, longer-lasting treatment tends to produce better outcomes for clients, so aftercare programs can be quite beneficial. Aftercare provides individuals in recovery with continued access to treatment that supports their ongoing sobriety.
