The primary purpose behind The Hope Center’s aftercare program is to provide continuous treatment to individuals who have recently completed addiction treatment and are beginning re-assimilation back into society. Our aftercare program offers support, guidance, and ongoing follow-up care in order to ensure that each client is continuing on the path towards long-term sobriety.

Why Aftercare is Needed

In most cases, aftercare consists of a multi-faceted program put in place by the client’s counselor or therapist – frequently involving ongoing outpatient sessions, continuous one-on-one meetings with a therapist, some type of occupational counseling, and attendance at outside support groups.

Aftercare comes highly recommended as a part of the standard “Florida Model” of comprehensive recovery. This model has proven extremely successful as clients continue receiving professional therapeutic treatment while being held accountable for the progression and general achievement of fully functional, drug-free lives.

Aftercare includes classes on relapse prevention, the formation of individualized, continuous treatment plans, educational needs (such as resume building and interview coaching), and legal assistance (as far as court orders and fulfilling probation requirements). We will also assist in placing each client in a sober living facility that will cater specifically to all of his or her individualized needs.

Continuing Treatment With Aftercare

Well over 50% of those who make it through a 90-day rehab program will relapse within a year of completing treatment. The highest risk of relapse takes place during the initial 60 days after being released from a rehabilitation program. However, the risk remains exceedingly high for the first 5 years of recovery, on average. In order to establish a solid and sturdy foundation for lasting sobriety, aftercare is an essential step in the overall recovery process.
