Recovery is an ongoing process that never ends. Completing rehab does not indicate that your journey to sobriety is finished. For some with a substance abuse disorder, this may take time to grasp fully. Rehab is a profound time in recovery when you can address many issues and learn new skills to cope in the future healthily. Though a person can change immensely during rehab, it is essential to be involved with an aftercare program to eradicate any risk of relapse.
Our graduates at Bayview Recovery receive extended services in an aftercare program. Whether it is through our outpatient program, sober living, or continued individual therapy, there are many options for you to stay committed to recovery. No matter what stage you are in recovery, Bayview Recovery is here for you. If you are battling addiction and could benefit from a drug rehab followed by an aftercare program, we can help you take the first steps towards recovery. To learn more about our services, please contact Bayview Recovery today at 855.478.3650.
What Does Life After Rehab Look Like?
Drug rehabs are important in recovery. However, they do not last forever. The intense work and learning in rehab will provide you the skills necessary for the ongoing battle with addiction. As mentioned above, an aftercare program will help immensely to keep you on track in recovery. Life after rehab is the continued work and use of what you learn in rehab. Listed below are therapy skills you can use in life after rehab:
- Set goals for the future
- Handle relapse triggers
- Deal with transitions
- Process painful emotions and maintain positive thought patterns
- Strengthen coping skills
- Focus on mental health
- Continued therapy
- Joining support groups for support and accountability
Returning to your life after rehab can be stressful. Focusing on your recovery should be just as important to you as it was in rehab. The work in your recovery should continue, and each aftercare appointment should be viewed as a vital component of your recovery. Bayview Recovery’s aftercare program encourages you to be actively involved in your recovery to sustain lifelong sobriety. We believe life after rehab is just as important as life in rehab with sobriety being the main goal of both.
