Programs that offer residential treatment to clients with an additional option in relation to aftercare, with additional outpatient addiction rehabilitation services, can be perfect for some individuals in Plymouth. For example, for those who have not had success at staying sober without relapse after completing outpatient treatment or those who have relapsed in residential or other inpatient programs when no additional aftercare was provided. Relapse is not uncommon when someone has suffered with a chronic long-term addiction, so residential plus outpatient addiction rehabilitation facilities provide a new approach which will increase the chances for a successful recovery from the start of their treatment until they are entirely amalgamated back into a drug free lifestyle on their own with a support system to encourage this.
When a person is attending a residential rehab center they are in a much better position to receive the services essential to their recovery, and to be able to stay relapse free while they are in treatment. This is not often what happens with outpatient treatment when the person selects this as the primary treatment method, simply because they have access to drugs and alcohol if something is triggered and they are not in a position to receive support. Relapse is even less likely for a person who receives aggressive and personalized rehabilitation in a residential program, 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 substance abuse rehabilitation programs help clients develop an aftercare plan that might incorporate regular follow-up visits with counselors who can refer them to services that may help them organize their lives in a manner that will encourage the drug free life they want to lead, such as services to help them obtain employment, get medical and mental services, receive education resources, etc.
