Aftercare Management

What you do after treatment is vital for sustained recovery

  • Addiction and alcoholism are chronic brain diseases that do not go away when you stop using or get out of treatment

  • I see many people get out of treatment very confident they have control over their disease

  • They have been comfortable and did not want to use in treatment

  • They don't realize it is far easier to stay clean or sober in a controlled environment where they are monitored and restricted in their access to drugs and alcohol

  • Once they go back out into the real world, they are plunged into a world of easy access and old triggers.

  • Most of them relapse, many in the first month

  • They need ongoing care just like the heart attack patient getting out of the hospital
