Treatment facilities which offer residential treatment to clients with an additional option in relation to aftercare, with supplemental outpatient substance abuse rehabilitation services, can be beneficial for some recovering addicts in Ballouville. Examples of this are those who have not had success at remaining sober without relapse following outpatient treatment or who have relapsed in residential or other programs when no additional aftercare was pursued. Relapse is not uncommon when a person has struggled with a chronic long-term addiction, so residential plus outpatient addiction rehab programs offer a new method which will increase the chances for an effective recovery from the beginning of their treatment until they are entirely integrated back into a clean and sober lifestyle on their own with a support system to encourage this.
When someone is attending a residential rehabilitation facility they are in a much better position to receive the services vital to their recovery, and to be able to stay drug free while they are in treatment. This is not always the outcome with outpatient treatment when the person selects this as the main treatment component, simply due to the fact that they have access to drugs and alcohol if something is triggered and they are not able to get support. Relapse is tremendously less likely for a person who receives personalized and aggressive rehabilitation in a residential facility, and then continues to be involved in outpatient addiction treatment offered by residential programs who construct a recovery plan that will help them smoothly transition back into the real world. Residential plus outpatient addiction rehabilitation facilities help clients devise 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 promote the drug free life they want to lead, such as services to help them establish employment, receive medical and mental services, receive education resources, etc.
