Rehab centers that offer residential treatment to clients with an additional option in relation to aftercare, with supplemental outpatient substance abuse rehabilitation services, can be helpful for many recovering addicts in Northford. For example, for those people who have not been successful at staying relapse free following outpatient treatment or those who have relapsed in residential or other programs when no additional continuum of care was provided. Relapse is not uncommon when someone has struggled with a chronic long-term addiction problem, so residential plus outpatient substance abuse rehab facilities offer a new method which will increase the chances for an effective recovery from the start of their rehabilitation until they are completely integrated back into a drug free lifestyle on their own with a support system to encourage this.
When someone is in a residential rehabilitation facility they are in a very good position to receive the correct treatment essential to their recovery from their addiction, and to be able to stay relapse free while they are in treatment. This is not often what happens with outpatient treatment when someone chooses this as a main treatment option, simply because they have access to drugs and alcohol if something is triggered and they are not in a position to receive the support they need. Relapse is even less likely for a person who gets personalized and aggressive treatment in a residential facility, and then continues to be involved in outpatient addiction treatment provided by residential programs who devise a recovery plan that will help them smoothly transition back into the real world. Residential plus outpatient addiction treatment programs help clients develop an aftercare plan that may incorporate frequent follow-up visits with counselors who can refer them to services that may help them establish their lives in a way that will encourage the sober life they want to live, such as services to help them establish employment, get medical and mental services, receive education resources, etc.
