Rehab centers that provide residential treatment to clients with an added option in relation to aftercare, with additional outpatient addiction rehabilitation services, can be helpful for some individuals in Salem. For example, for those people who have not been successful at staying relapse free after completing outpatient treatment or those who have relapsed in residential or other inpatient programs when no additional aftercare was pursued. Relapse is not uncommon when someone has struggled with a chronic long-term addiction problem, so residential plus outpatient addiction treatment centers offer a new approach which will increase the chances for a successful recovery from the beginning of their treatment until they are thoroughly integrated back into a clean and sober lifestyle on their own with a support system to encourage this.
When someone is in a residential rehab facility they are in a very good position to receive the services essential to their recovery from their addiction, and to be able to remain relapse free while they are in treatment. This is not often the outcome with outpatient treatment when someone selects this as a primary treatment method, simply because 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 aggressive and personalized treatment in a residential facility, and then continues to receive outpatient drug and alcohol treatment offered by residential programs who devise a treatment plan that will help them smoothly transition back into drug free life. Residential plus outpatient addiction rehabilitation programs help clients devise an aftercare plan that may incorporate regular 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 clean and sober life they want to live, such as services to help them establish employment, receive medical and mental services, receive education resources, etc.
