The Value of Rehab Aftercare

Once you have completed your detox and rehabilitation treatment here at Rehab Clinics Group, it is understandable to be worried about the potential relapse challenges you may face once you return home and into your routine.

Re-building your life, relationships and routine without drugs or alcohol can be difficult and takes time to readjust. Seeking support to continue your recovery journey and stay sober will massively reduce the risk of relapse and is a huge benefit of our rehab aftercare services.

At Rehab Clinics Group, we are committed to helping you on your recovery journey. The rehab centres we work with provide a range of aftercare support options that will help you after rehab and build on all the hard work you have done during your stay with us.

The risk of relapse tends to be the highest during the first 2 months of leaving an inpatient rehab facility, due to the lack of 24/7 support and guidance that is provided during the rehab programme.

After you have successfully completed your drug or alcohol rehab programme, you will automatically receive free aftercare sessions for the first year after you have completed treatment.


What is Aftercare: Recovery Sessions Explained

Rehab aftercare sessions provided by our rehab centres take place at the rehab and can also be attended virtually. This means that if you attend a rehab centre which is further away, you will still have access to aftercare groups.

Aftercare offers you the opportunity to ask questions, discuss concerns and remain accountable for your recovery amongst the other people in the sessions. Aftercare groups discuss their own recovery journeys, discuss how they are feeling, and sessions are held by an addiction specialist who can offer support.

Your aftercare group doesn’t have to be at the facility where you first received your treatment programme, and you will be welcomed at any of our rehab aftercare groups.

Why is Aftercare Important?

Individuals who keep up with their aftercare plan are much more likely to beat their alcohol or drug addiction and build upon their coping strategies without a relapse.

Although relapse is common for some people in recovery, this does not mean it is the end of the recovery process. Aftercare can help people stay on track and offers a space to seek advice. Relapse prevention techniques are often utilised.

The key benefits of aftercare include:

  • Supportive environment to talk about recovery
  • Mutual support from others in the same position
  • Weekly check-ins with an addiction specialist
  • Access to rehab services from your own environment
  • Relapse prevention techniques
  • Remain accountable in your recovery
  • Constant support to maintain sobriety on a weekly basis


Local Recovery Support Options After Rehab

As well as aftercare provided by residential rehab, there are a number of local outpatient rehab services which can help people in recovery maintain sobriety. Alcoholics Anonymous, Narcotics Anonymous and Cocaine Anonymous are free recovery services that host group meetings weekly across the country.

AA and NA meetings are held multiple times a week in the local area to help people struggling with drug or alcohol addiction. Aftercare is important to help maintain sobriety, and these outpatient addiction services can be massively beneficial to those who are struggling.

At Rehab Clinics Group we recommend attending AA or NA meetings alongside aftercare sessions to give you the best possible chance of maintaining sobriety and long term recovery. Find local AA meetings and local NA meetings here.
