Rehab centers that provide residential treatment to clients with an additional option in terms of a continuum of care, with additional outpatient drug and alcohol rehabilitation services, can be helpful for many recovering addicts in West Hartford. Examples of this are those people who have not had success at staying relapse free after completing outpatient treatment or those who have relapsed in residential or other programs when no further continuum of care was provided. Relapse is not uncommon when a person has struggled with a long-term addiction, so residential plus outpatient addiction rehabilitation facilities offer a new method which will increase the chances for a successful recovery from the beginning of their treatment until they are completely amalgamated back into a clean and sober lifestyle with a support system to encourage this.
When someone is attending a residential rehabilitation facility they are in a much better position to receive the services vital to their recovery, and to be able to remain 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 component, simply because they have access to drugs and alcohol if something is triggered and they are not able to get the support they need. Relapse is tremendously less likely for someone who receives personalized and aggressive rehabilitation in a residential facility, and then continues to be involved in outpatient substance abuse treatment offered by residential programs who develop a treatment plan that will help them smoothly transition back into drug free life. Residential plus outpatient drug and alcohol 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 establish their lives in a manner that will support the sober life they want to lead, such as services to help them establish employment, get medical and mental services, receive education resources, etc.
