Treatment facilities that offer residential treatment with an additional option in relation to continuum of care, with additional outpatient substance abuse rehabilitation services, can be helpful for certain individuals in East Haddam. For example, for those who have not been successful at remaining relapse free after completing outpatient treatment or those who have relapsed in residential or other inpatient programs when no further aftercare was provided. Relapse is not uncommon when someone has struggled with a chronic long-term addiction problem, so residential plus outpatient substance abuse rehab centers offer a new approach which will set someone up for a successful recovery from the start of their rehabilitation until they are thoroughly integrated back into a clean and sober lifestyle on their own with a support system to encourage this.
When someone is in a residential rehabilitation center they are in a very good position to receive the services essential to their recovery from their addiction, and to be able to remain drug free while they are in rehab. This is not always what happens with outpatient treatment when someone selects this as a primary treatment component, solely due to the fact that they have access to drugs and alcohol if something is triggered and they are not able to get the support they need. Relapse is tremendously less likely for a person who gets aggressive and personalized rehabilitation in a residential program, and then continues to be involved in outpatient drug and alcohol treatment offered by residential programs who devise a treatment plan that will help them easily transition back into drug free life. Residential plus outpatient addiction treatment facilities help clients devise an aftercare plan that might incorporate continual follow-up visits with counselors who can refer them to services that may help them organize their lives in a way that will encourage the drug free life they want to live, such as services to help them establish employment, receive medical and mental services, receive education resources, etc.
