Rehab centers which offer residential treatment to clients with an added option in terms of a continuum of care, with additional outpatient substance abuse treatment services, can be ideal for many recovering addicts in East Woodstock. Examples of this are those people who have not had success at staying sober without relapse following outpatient treatment or those who have relapsed in residential or other programs when no further continuum of care was done. Relapse is not uncommon when someone has suffered with a long-term addiction, so residential plus outpatient substance abuse rehabilitation programs provide a new approach which will increase the chances for a successful recovery from the beginning of their treatment until they are thoroughly amalgamated back into a clean and sober lifestyle on their own with a support system to encourage this.
When a person is in a residential rehab center they are in a much better position to receive the services essential to their recovery from their addiction, and to be able to stay drug free while they are in rehab. This is not often the outcome with outpatient treatment when someone selects this as a primary treatment method, solely because they have access to drugs and alcohol if something is triggered and they are not in a position to get the support they need. Relapse is even less likely for someone who gets personalized and aggressive treatment in a residential program, and then continues to be involved in outpatient addiction treatment offered by residential programs who devise a recovery plan that will help them easily transition back into drug free life. Residential plus outpatient drug and alcohol treatment facilities help clients develop an aftercare plan that might incorporate continual follow-up visits with counselors who can refer them to services that may help them establish their lives in a way that will support the clean and sober life they want to lead, such as services to help them establish employment, get medical and mental services, receive education resources, etc.
