What Happens After I Leave the Residential Drug Detox Program?
Addiction is an ongoing disease. That’s why after you leave, we will provide you with references, referrals, and connections to therapists, support groups, and other resources. A residential program is a deeply valuable and rewarding experience, but for a healthy recovery, you should maintain your progress by following up with outpatient treatment. That might be just therapy or meetings, or it may include a medical component depending on your substance and circumstances. Social workers in the program can help you with housing assistance and other supportive steps as well. To simply walk out the door of the facility is to risk walking back into the same stressors and influences that encouraged your substance use in the first place. On the other hand, the right follow-up care can support your recovery journey and give you the tools you need to build the life that you want.
