Treatment facilities that provide residential treatment to clients with an added option in terms of an aftercare, with additional outpatient substance abuse treatment services, can be ideal for some individuals in Monroe. Examples of this are those people who have not had success at staying relapse free after completing outpatient treatment or who have relapsed in residential or other programs when no further continuum of care was pursued. Relapse is not uncommon when a person has suffered with a long-term addiction, so residential plus outpatient substance abuse rehab programs offer a new method which will increase the chances for a successful recovery from the start of their rehabilitation until they are entirely amalgamated back into a clean and sober lifestyle with a support system to encourage this.
When a person is in a residential treatment program they are in a very good position to receive the services vital to their recovery, and to be able to stay relapse free while they are in rehab. This is not always what happens with outpatient treatment when someone chooses this as the main treatment option, simply because they have access to drugs and alcohol if something is triggered and they are not able to get the support they need. Relapse is even less likely for someone who gets aggressive and personalized rehabilitation in a residential program, and then continues to be involved in outpatient addiction treatment provided by residential programs who construct a treatment plan that will help them smoothly transition back into drug free life. Residential plus outpatient drug and alcohol rehabilitation facilities help clients develop an aftercare plan that may 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 support the drug free life they want to lead, such as services to help them obtain employment, receive medical and mental services, receive education resources, etc.
