Planning for Post-recovery Care
There are many components to the rehab and recovery process. Most individuals and families concentrate on the rehab aspect of recovery, but that is only the beginning. The second step is planning for post-recovery care. Twilight Recovery can help with this process.
What Is Involved in Post-recovery Care Planning?
Post-recovery care can seem just as insurmountable as the concept of rehab. Individuals and families may find themselves overwhelmed with the various aspects that need to be covered. However, the process can be made easier by breaking it down into its separate parts.
There are few things more important in recovery than community. This can include:
- Fellow recovering addiction
There may even be other people that can be of assistance following rehab. The goal is to surround oneself with a security network that is willing to support them during the good and bad times ahead. People may believe that since they were able to get through rehab, they can do the rest on their own. This could not be further from the truth.
A recovery center will make sure that individuals are aware that nobody can exist in a vacuum. The purpose is to show people that their go-it-alone mindset may have contributed to their ongoing substance abuse due to rejecting the assistance of others.
Finding Groups Post-recovery
While having a social community is important, it is also necessary to continue attending groups post-rehab. While in rehab, residents benefit from group therapies, where they have the opportunity to interact for the first time with others about their shared condition.
The benefits of these programs cannot be overstated. Therefore, it is only natural that they continue in the post-rehab world. Much like developing a community, some people do not see the benefit in joining groups because they feel they have “done their time” in rehab.
Without these continuing groups, people have a higher propensity for relapse due to losing that connection with others going through the same issues. For example, they may find it difficult to talk to family and friends about their addiction issues because they feel they’ll be judged. However, there is no judgment in these groups, as people understand the pain and conflicting emotions that come with recovery.
Recovery programs will aim to instill these ideas in their residents as they proceed through the rehab process. They will be shown how helpful and necessary group therapy can be and why groups are so beneficial post-rehab. Since this has been proven to be one of the best ways to stay sober, recovery programs will stress groups not as an option, but as a necessity.
Finding Continuing Post-recovery Care From Trustworthy Professionals
Recovery centers have three things they will attempt to do as thoroughly as possible:
- Help a person through detox
- Engage individuals in dialogue about their disorders and allow them to confront their issues in a safe and engaging environment
- Assist in post-recovery planning to prevent relapse
Part of this process, which begins in the recovery facility, is finding medical professionals that the person trusts and that can be trusted. These professionals must be ready for whatever the post-recovery process brings to those attempting to heal. People leave rehab with many questions and need people to help them find answers.
A recovery center can assist residents in finding these caring professionals. This gives people a better chance of attending regular sessions. Without guidance to find professionals, people may choose the first option that appears or abandon their search altogether. This can lead to disastrous results.
A recovery center that can include assistance in finding professionals for residents to partner with can see a lower relapse rate. They can also ensure that residents feel more comfortable starting different forms of therapy within the facility to prepare them for dealing with medical professionals post-recovery.
