Do I Really Need Aftercare?
Treatment is a big commitment, so we can understand that the thought of an aftercare plan might feel overwhelming. However, participating in an aftercare plan can significantly increase the chances that you’ll stay sober. You’ll have a schedule to follow and resources within reach.
Having an aftercare plan also teaches you essential coping skills, job skills and stress management techniques. Learning these skills will help you gain confidence in the real world. On the other hand, not having an aftercare plan can jeopardize your hard work. Not only will you be lacking a structured schedule, but also you may not get the support you need from others.
Even though each person is unique, we strongly recommend an aftercare plan for each client.
