Recovery from a substance abuse problem has its own timeline — and some people will need a more extended stay in treatment to get the help they need. Primarily, the severity of your habit and the underlying issues which have sustained your habit will determine how much time you will need in recovery. If you have already taken the brave step of admitting you need help and contacting a qualified rehab problem like Bayview Recovery, then an extended care program can give you the greatest assurance of completing your recovery and avoiding the life-threatening dangers of relapse that a failed recovery attempt can mean.

The Importance of Extended Care Addiction Treatment

Recovery has many phases. Recovery often begins with medically-assisted detox, and Bayview Recovery can work with your provider to incorporate this aspect of your treatment into a broader recovery plan. After detox, individuals then begin individual and group therapy to address the psychological aspects of their addiction. This is a critical aspect of recovery, regardless of the drug or severity of the user’s habits, because therapy can help the recovering individual avoid relapse, which can be extremely dangerous.

The length of this phase can vary widely, because it can involve a wide range of issues many of which can be very deep-seated, affecting the recovering individual for years before being treated. Recovery for women can be especially complex, and they will often benefit the most from extended care programs which emphasize a nuanced and in-depth approach to issues which predominantly affect only this gender.

Most importantly, Bayview Recovery recognizes that every individual will recover at their own pace, regardless of their past experiences or gender. An extended care program can accommodate any individual who needs more time to recovery for whatever reason. If an individual needs more time than allotted by a more traditional rehab format — even if it’s merely an additional week or two — an extended care program can give them the time they need to feel confident about leaving treatment.

Benefits of Extended Care Addiction Treatment

Bayview Recovery’s extended care program helps its client by giving them more time to accomplish their specific recovery goals, and it reinforces several facets common to all individual’s in recovery. These facets include:

  • Accountability – By holding individuals accountable for their actions, the treatment team can help strengthen the individual to be more responsible for their own sobriety after treatment. Some individuals will benefit from the added supervision and internalize these components to better self-regulate their own behaviors once they leave the program.
  • Education – Each individual learns at their own pace, as well, and some individuals may need more time to learn and apply strategies to their own lives in a meaningful way. The greater an individual’s understanding of the problems and challenges of addiction, they better prepared they will be to face these tests and triggers after rehab.
  • Healing – Healing is also a highly individual process that can be difficult, if not impossible, to estimate or predict. This is because the emotional and physical toll that addiction can have on an individual can be immense. Healing is not only an internal process. Family members and loved ones will also need time to heal from the repercussions of addiction. Extended care can also help make the client’s return to family life more comfortable for all involved.
