One of the most important pieces of the recovery program at Serenity Acres is aftercare. It took years of substance abuse to develop the addictive behaviors that are addressed in treatment. One or two months of inpatient care is just the first step to recovery. We recognize that aftercare is key to long term sobriety, which is why we begin aftercare and relapse prevention planning on day one and continue developing that plan until discharge.
Leaving treatment and going back to daily life surrounded by triggers and everyday stressors without a comprehensive aftercare plan is a recipe for disaster. Our counselors at Serenity Acres work with each client to ensure they have the resources and tools to maintain sobriety long after leaving treatment. Aftercare plans are unique to each client based on their goals and needs. Our aftercare planning includes making sure clients have access to proper medical care, psychiatric care, substance abuse counseling, employment, education, and housing.
