Treatment facilities which offer residential treatment with an additional option in relation to aftercare, with supplemental outpatient substance abuse treatment services, can be helpful for certain recovering addicts in West Hartland. For example, for those who have not had success at remaining sober without relapse following outpatient treatment or those who have relapsed in residential or other programs when no additional aftercare was pursued. Relapse is not uncommon when a person has struggled with a chronic long-term addiction, so residential plus outpatient substance abuse treatment centers provide a new method which will increase the chances for a successful recovery from the beginning of their rehabilitation until they are completely amalgamated back into a drug free lifestyle with a support system to encourage this.
When a person is in a residential treatment facility they are in a much better position to receive the services essential to their recovery, and to be able to stay drug free while they are in rehab. This is not often what happens with outpatient treatment when the person chooses 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 a person who gets personalized and aggressive rehabilitation in a residential facility, and then continues to be involved in outpatient substance abuse treatment provided by residential programs who construct a treatment plan that will help them easily transition back into drug free life. Residential plus outpatient drug and alcohol treatment programs help clients devise an aftercare plan that may incorporate continual follow-up visits with counselors who can refer them to services that may help them establish their lives in a manner that will promote the drug free life they want to lead, such as services to help them establish employment, get medical and mental services, receive education resources, etc.
