Rehab centers that provide residential treatment with an added option in relation to aftercare, with supplemental outpatient drug and alcohol rehabilitation services, can be ideal for many individuals in Amston. Examples of this are those people who have not had success at staying relapse free after completing outpatient treatment or those who have relapsed in residential or other inpatient programs when no additional continuum of care was done. Relapse is not uncommon when a person has struggled with a chronic long-term addiction, so residential plus outpatient substance abuse rehab facilities provide a new approach which will increase the chances for an effective recovery from the beginning of their rehabilitation until they are entirely integrated back into a clean and sober lifestyle with a support system to encourage this.
When someone is attending a residential rehab center they are in a much better position to receive the correct treatment essential to their recovery, and to be able to remain relapse free while they are in treatment. This is not always what happens with outpatient treatment when someone selects this as a main treatment option, simply because they have access to drugs and alcohol if something is triggered and they are not in a position to receive the support they need. Relapse is even less likely for someone who gets personalized and aggressive treatment in a residential facility, and then continues to receive outpatient substance abuse treatment offered by residential programs who devise a treatment plan that will help them easily transition back into the real world. Residential plus outpatient substance abuse treatment facilities help clients develop an aftercare plan that might include frequent follow-up visits with counselors who can refer them to services that may help them establish their lives in a manner that will encourage the sober life they want to live, such as services to help them establish employment, receive medical and mental services, receive education resources, etc.
