Programs which offer residential treatment to clients with an additional option in terms of a continuum of care, with supplemental outpatient substance abuse rehabilitation services, can be perfect for many individuals in South Windham. Examples of this are those who have not had success at remaining relapse free following outpatient treatment or those who have relapsed in residential or other programs when no further aftercare was pursued. Relapse is not uncommon when a person has struggled with a long-term addiction problem, so residential plus outpatient drug and alcohol treatment centers offer a new method which will set someone up for a successful recovery from the beginning of their rehabilitation until they are entirely amalgamated back into a clean and sober lifestyle on their own with a support system to encourage this.
When someone is in a residential rehab center they are in a very good 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 what happens with outpatient treatment when someone selects this as a main treatment option, simply due to the fact that they have access to drugs and alcohol if something is triggered and they are not in a position to get support. Relapse is even less likely for someone who gets aggressive and personalized rehabilitation in a residential facility, and then continues to be involved in outpatient drug and alcohol treatment offered by residential programs who devise a treatment plan that will help them easily transition back into drug free life. Residential plus outpatient drug and alcohol rehabilitation centers help clients develop an aftercare plan that may include continual follow-up visits with counselors who can refer them to services that may help them establish their lives in a manner that will support the clean and sober life they want to live, such as services to help them obtain employment, get medical and mental services, receive education resources, etc.
