A professional treatment program can provide you with the support, monitoring, and treatment you need to get clean and sober. Inpatient recovery programs require that you live at the facility for the duration of the program. Many people benefit from the highly structured environment and 24-hour care. Additionally, the treatment staff will create an individualized treatment plan tailored to your specific needs and addiction. Every treatment program is different, but your plan will likely consist of individual therapy, group counseling, family therapy, support groups, and aftercare planning.
Aftercare plans consist of ongoing support options for someone to continue building upon their recovery. These options may include support groups, therapy, group counseling, alumni programs, sober living homes, and more. Recovery is a lifelong process and the sooner you begin, the sooner you can make positive changes in your life.
