Seeking Treatment for Substance Use Disorder

Aftercare Planning

Planning for aftercare begins when you first arrive for treatment. The goal is to set you up for success for your life in recovery. When you leave treatment, your aftercare plan will serve as the foundation you can rely on in ongoing recovery. As you progress in your recovery, you can make changes to your aftercare plan that fit your lifestyle.

    This is a huge accomplishment! You've completed treatment. I have a folder here with all your aftercare appointments and your doctor's appointment, as well as a copy of your prescriptions, your completion letter, and a certificate for completing treatment. I put your counselor's business card in here, as well as mine, so please call us if you're struggling with your recovery.

    Aftercare can include plans for:

    • Employment
    • Peer support groups
    • Therapy
    • Relapse prevention
    • Medical treatment
    • Housing
    • Legal issues
    • Financial stability
    • Crisis management
    • Education
