Treatment facilities which offer residential treatment to clients with an added option in relation to aftercare, with additional outpatient drug and alcohol treatment services, can be perfect for some people in Trumbull. For example, for those people who have not had success at remaining sober without relapse following outpatient treatment or those who have relapsed in residential or other inpatient programs when no additional continuum of care was provided. Relapse is not uncommon when a person has suffered with a chronic long-term addiction problem, so residential plus outpatient addiction rehabilitation centers offer a new approach which will increase the chances for an effective recovery from the beginning of their treatment until they are entirely amalgamated back into a clean and sober lifestyle with a support system to encourage this.
When a person is attending a residential rehab facility they are in a much better position to receive the services vital 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 someone selects this as a primary 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 receive support. Relapse is even less likely for a person who gets personalized and aggressive rehabilitation in a residential program, and then continues to be involved in outpatient drug and alcohol treatment offered by residential programs who construct a recovery plan that will help them easily transition back into drug free life. Residential plus outpatient addiction treatment programs help clients devise an aftercare plan that may include regular follow-up visits with counselors who can refer them to services that may help them organize their lives in a manner that will support the sober life they want to live, such as services to help them establish employment, get medical and mental services, receive education resources, etc.
