At Broadway, our caring and professional staff treat each of our clients as individuals; your case manager will design your aftercare plan to meet your specific needs. One of the best features of our aftercare program is a complimentary service. Why? Because our team is fully committed to our clients’ recovery.
WHAT IS DRUG REHAB AFTERCARE?
Congratulations on successfully completing Broadway’s residential addiction treatment program! Celebrate your accomplishment, but remember, this is only the first step in your recovery. The long-term effects of substance abuse on the brain and body do not end with treatment. Many recovering addicts say that it takes a year or longer before you will start to feel “normal.” Choosing to live a sober lifestyle takes a long-term commitment, and the establishment of new routines and behaviors takes time. Aftercare is a broad term that covers the services we provide our clients to help them transition from treatment into everyday life. The goals of aftercare services are to live a sober life, prevent relapse, and to establish and maintain healthy relationships with others. We don’t charge for these services and they are available as long as you need support.
COMPONENTS OF A SUCCESSFUL AFTERCARE PLAN
Each client has different needs from an aftercare program, so before the end of treatment, your case manager and therapist will help you create a personalized aftercare plan to address the long-term physical, psychological, and social aspects of recovery.
A quality aftercare plan focuses on healthy and supportive relationships; when your family and friends are supportive of your recovery, you have a better chance of success. The plan will cover your basic needs, such as housing and finances, by offering employment-related services, vocational skills, or education. It will also address any ongoing legal issues as necessary. Finally, the aftercare plan will ensure your mental health and medical needs are met, including transportation, child care for employment, and ongoing treatment appointments.
EACH OF OUR CLIENTS HAVE ACCESS TO THE FOLLOWING AFTERCARE TREATMENT OPTIONS…
RECOVERY SUPPORT PHONE CALLS
Broadway’s caring staff regularly follow up with you by phone after you leave treatment. They can also contact you via email or text, whichever one you prefer. This frequency of communication is to see how you’re adjusting, find out how you are progressing, and determine whether any changes need to be made.
ADDICTION SUPPORT GROUPS
Our case managers and therapists help clients find the best support groups for them; these groups include Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) and Narcotics Anonymous (NA) 12-step groups. If a 12-step program is not a good fit for you, we can connect you with other recovery support groups, like church-sponsored or secular groups. Moreover, many of our clients go to these meetings together, so we can help you connect with friends and join a carpool if needed.
The basis of an aftercare plan is to prevent relapse by providing the necessary support to meet your basic needs, thereby reducing stress in your life. Relapse is unfortunately quite common, with many recovering addicts experiencing at least one relapse. Relapse does not mean failure, however. Your aftercare plan will identify your support sponsors whom you can rely on when you have the urge to drink or use drugs. Moreover, during and after treatment, your case manager works with you and your sponsor to develop a proactive plan for identifying, avoiding, and overcoming your personal triggers.
All of our clients are invited to regular alumni events that include activities such as sober beach parties, guest speakers, day trips to amusement parks, hiking, and much more. This provides them with a community of people in recovery who are there to help and support each other. A supportive and healthy community is vital for recovery. We want to be there for you like family.
Often, we help clients get into quality sober living houses. Sober living houses are facilities that provide a safe environment for recovering individuals; it removes them from the unhealthy environments that facilitated their addiction. Broadway treatment does not currently provide sober living services; however, our caring case managers can help you find sober living that’s a good fit for you. Likewise, we can connect our clients with non-profit agencies that help people in recovery find good jobs. We also have a 30-day intern program, and our website has a large blog section, with many of the articles written personally by our clients. Broadway has a driver who can shuttle you to and from your ongoing treatment, or we can help you in finding transportation to your job, medical appointments, counseling, or wherever you need to go.
