What to Expect In Our Aftercare Program
Your aftercare planning begins from the time you enter treatment. Our facility team works closely with your case manager to devise a comprehensive aftercare plan that will work for you once you’re ready to leave our doors.
Once a patient is discharged, their case manager may continue to check up on them periodically to ensure they’re doing well and make any needed adjustments to the aftercare plan.

Who Needs Aftercare?
The complex disease of addiction can’t be cured with a single treatment, medication or short-term program. Long-lasting sobriety is an ongoing choice that people must recommit to every single day. Because of this, aftercare is an essential part of every patient’s recovery program at The Recovery Village.

Life After Rehab: The Aftercare Process
Weeks, months and even years after a formal rehabilitation program is complete, patients still run the risk of relapse. According to the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA), the relapse rate for drug addiction is between 40-60%, with even higher rates for alcohol addiction. However, the longer a person stays sober after completing a rehab program, the lower their chances of relapse become.
At The Recovery Village, we help bolster post-rehab success by structuring our programs around the skills needed for lifelong wellness. In the beginning stages of treatment, patients adjust to sobriety, learn how to modify harmful thoughts and behaviors and begin to understand the roots of their substance use disorder. Following medical detox and residential treatment, they move to progressively more autonomous levels of care in partial hospitalization, intensive outpatient and outpatient programs. There, people gradually gain more independence, develop a strong support network and foster greater self-understanding and acceptance.
Once an individual has worked through these levels of care, they are ready to begin the aftercare process. Aftercare marks the transition from formal treatment to lifelong recovery outside the walls of our facility. Before a patient is discharged from our program, counselors, psychiatrists, psychologists and physicians work closely with their personal case manager to devise a comprehensive aftercare plan.
