Rehab centers which offer residential treatment with an additional option in relation to aftercare, with additional outpatient substance abuse rehabilitation services, can be perfect for many individuals in Prospect. Examples of this are those people who have not been successful at remaining sober without relapse after completing outpatient treatment or those 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 chronic long-term addiction problem, so residential plus outpatient drug and alcohol treatment facilities provide a new approach which will set someone up for a successful recovery from the start of their rehabilitation until they are completely amalgamated back into a clean and sober lifestyle with a support system to encourage this.
When a person is attending a residential rehab program they are in a very good position to receive the services essential to their recovery, and to be able to stay drug free while they are in treatment. This is not often the outcome with outpatient treatment when the person selects this as a primary treatment component, simply due to the fact that they have access to drugs and alcohol if something is triggered and they are not able to receive the support they need. Relapse is even less likely for someone who receives personalized and aggressive treatment in a residential facility, and then continues to be involved in outpatient drug and alcohol treatment offered by residential programs who develop a recovery plan that will help them easily transition back into drug free life. Residential plus outpatient addiction rehabilitation facilities help clients devise an aftercare plan that may incorporate frequent follow-up visits with counselors who can refer them to services that may help them organize their lives in a way that will promote the sober life they want to live, such as services to help them obtain employment, get medical and mental services, receive education resources, etc.
