Rehab centers that provide residential treatment to clients with an added option in relation to continuum of care, with supplemental outpatient addiction rehabilitation services, can be beneficial for some individuals in North Stonington. For example, for those who have not been successful at remaining sober without relapse after completing outpatient treatment or who have relapsed in residential or other inpatient programs when no additional aftercare was done. Relapse is not uncommon when someone has suffered with a long-term addiction problem, so residential plus outpatient addiction rehabilitation facilities offer a new method which will set someone up for an effective recovery from the start of their treatment until they are completely integrated back into a drug free lifestyle on their own with a support system to encourage this.
When a person is attending a residential rehab program they are in a much better position to receive the services vital to their recovery from their addiction, and to be able to remain relapse free while they are in rehab. This is not often the outcome with outpatient treatment when someone chooses this as a primary treatment method, solely 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 receives aggressive and personalized treatment in a residential facility, and then continues to receive outpatient substance abuse treatment provided by residential programs who develop a treatment plan that will help them smoothly transition back into the real world. Residential plus outpatient addiction rehabilitation programs help clients devise an aftercare plan that might incorporate regular follow-up visits with counselors who can refer them to services that may help them establish their lives in a way that will promote the sober life they want to lead, such as services to help them obtain employment, receive medical and mental services, receive education resources, etc.
