Discharge Planning

Discharge Planning And Aftercare Services

Deciding to attend a detox and residential treatment program in Beaumont, California marks a pivotal and transformative moment in your life. Nevertheless, detox and inpatient treatment represent just the initial milestones on the road to recovery. Achieving long-term success and preventing relapse necessitates more than a short stint in treatment.

As an integral part of a comprehensive continuum of care, our discharge planning and aftercare services empower you to navigate the crucial steps following rehab, ensuring a sustained path to freedom.

The Importance Of Discharge Aftercare

Completing a drug and alcohol rehab program can be quite challenging, especially when transitioning from constant monitoring and care to independent living. Navigating life outside of treatment while maintaining recovery can be a real test. But fear not, as aftercare services are here to provide continuous support and guidance, ensuring you overcome any obstacles without succumbing to temptation.

During residential treatment, you’ll have the opportunity to delve deep into the root causes of your substance abuse. This intensive program also equips you with valuable coping mechanisms and essential skills necessary for a clean life. However, it is aftercare that truly allows you to put what you’ve learned into practice within real-life situations, all while receiving professional guidance and unwavering support.

According to the National Institute on Drug Abuse, it’s estimated that 40-60 percent of individuals undergoing substance abuse treatment may experience relapse at some point in their recovery journey. It’s crucial to understand that relapse doesn’t signify treatment failure; instead, it indicates the need for adjusted treatment and aftercare approaches tailored to meet individual needs. A comprehensive and personalized aftercare plan, focusing on overall wellness, plays a vital role in preventing relapse and helping individuals regain their footing after a setback.

What will your discharge plan look like after addiction treatment?

At Auora Recovery Center, we understand that each person’s journey to recovery is distinct, and we tailor our treatment approach accordingly. Our experienced staff takes into account your clinical, medical, and financial requirements to provide personalized recommendations for rehab aftercare discharge planning.

Your aftercare discharge planning goes beyond mere abstinence; it encompasses a comprehensive array of therapeutic interventions and services. These interventions aim to address various aspects of your life, including emotional well-being, physical health, vocational development, social reintegration, and psychological support. After successfully completing addiction treatment, your discharge plan may encompass several or all of the following elements:

  • Medication management for substance use disorder and co-occurring disorders
  • Attendance and participation in 12-Step meetings or other alternative support groups
  • Family involvement and therapy
  • Continued treatment in PHP, IOP, or OP
  • Drug and alcohol-free supportive housing at a sober living home
  • Random drug testing and/or breathalyzer tests
  • Facility-sponsored services like alumni groups, online support groups, and group therapy
  • One-on-one mental health counseling
  • Life skills training, job training or assistance, and/or parenting classes
  • Holistic services including nutritional guidance, exercise, yoga, and meditation

Before you are discharged from residential care, you will work with your substance abuse counselor to come up with an aftercare plan that works for you. Having your aftercare plan lined up before you leave rehab will allow you to feel supported and confident upon discharge.

Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP)

Following residential treatment, individuals often transition to a partial hospitalization program (PHP)—a vital step in their care journey. PHP bridges the gap between residential and outpatient treatment, offering intensive yet structured treatment and therapy during the day, much like residential care. The key distinction lies in the ability to return home in the evenings. For countless individuals, PHP serves as the crucial initial step in their continuum of care, fostering lasting progress and wellness.

Intensive Outpatient Programming (IOP)

Intensive outpatient programming (IOP), a vital component of the continuum of care, follows PHP to address addictions and co-occurring disorders on an outpatient basis. Instead of engaging in therapy and counseling throughout the day, IOP requires just 10-12 hours per week. This specialized care encompasses relapse prevention and life-skills training, empowering patients to attain a new level of independence. However, the journey comes with its fair share of challenges and triggers. Yet, fear not! IOP stands ready to provide the unwavering support needed to remain steadfast on the path to recovery.

Sober Living in California

Participating in a PHP, IOP, or standard outpatient program? Consider the option of a sober living home in West Palm Beach for your aftercare needs. Research highlights the significance of stable, supportive, and sober housing in preventing relapse. Many individuals lack a supportive household or cannot afford rent after treatment. Sober living homes serve as a crucial bridge, addressing the housing gap faced by individuals in recovery post-rehab.

Living in a sober home entails random drug and alcohol testing, adherence to house rules, rent payment, and active participation in a sober support group. But it’s more than just that! These homes provide a safe and supportive environment, fostering a collective commitment to sobriety among residents. Although formal professional treatment is not offered, sober living homes aid in maintaining structure and accountability, helping residents thrive in their journey.

Support Groups (Alcoholics Anonymous, Narcotics Anonymous, SMART, Etc.)

Addiction is often characterized as a disease of isolation, but recovery tells a different story. It’s a journey of self-discovery and building connections with fellow individuals on the path to sobriety. Support groups, such as 12-Step groups and other alternatives, serve as pillars of ongoing support, encouragement, and camaraderie among like-minded individuals.

From the moment they step out of rehab, many individuals find solace in the welcoming embrace of a sober support group. These groups provide a nurturing environment where members uplift and guide one another, fostering enduring sobriety within the community. While some individuals engage in recovery support groups during the initial stages of their recovery, others choose to attend meetings for several years or even throughout their entire lives. Come on in and find your place among a fellowship of strength, hope, and resilience.
