Setting up a person that is leaving drug treatment with great aftercare is one of the most important steps in securing sobriety. Many newly sober individuals are vulnerable to relapsing and negative outside influence when transitioning back into society. We want to bridge the gap between addiction treatment and learning to manage your daily responsibilities.
Strong aftercare includes setting up treatment in an intensive outpatient (IOP) program along with placement in sober living housing. Intensive outpatient, also known as IOP, is a lower level of care where clients attend group and individual therapy throughout the week. Usually three days a week is recommended until the person is bumped down to outpatient which requires treatment one day per week. This ensures a smooth transition back into daily life while still receiving the necessary counseling to continue building a solid foundation for recovery.
