What Happens After Rehab?
Going to a treatment facility is usually the first and one of the most important steps for recovery. However, it’s not the only step and the 30 to 90 days an individual spends in a rehab facility is a small portion of time compared to the years that follow in recovery. Adjusting to life after rehab can be challenging, especially since there is often a structured routine in rehab. The reappearance of influences and external factors can also make the process more challenging.
After rehab, recovery is still an ongoing process. An individual has a choice following rehab to move back to their home and their daily life or make some other changes. There are different types of aftercare programs available. Many facilities have their own aftercare programs, which can be a combination of sober living arrangements, medical evaluations, follow-up therapy, and alumni support groups.
The first 30 days after rehab are very important. During this time, you want to develop a recovery plan that includes goals and how to achieve them. You will want to establish a daily living routine and schedule, along with planning some of the important aftercare activities like finding a therapist and finding support groups that are the best fit for your needs.

Why Aftercare Planning is Essential to Success in Recovery
Residential treatment can give an individual the knowledge, habits, and skills to get out of addiction and into recovery. Once patients return to normal life, this is when the real work begins and aftercare is so important. There are a number of reasons why aftercare is essential for recovery
It’s Easy to Fall into Old Behaviors: Sustained recovery will depend on the use of communication and grounding skills in real life situations. Without real-life experiences in a sober life, practicing these new tools can make it easy to slip into old behaviors and relapse. Aftercare support is necessary in this transition period in order to reinforce long-term behavioral changes.
Learn from Others’ Experiences: When you participate in an aftercare program, you can talk to people who have used the skills you learned in real life situations. You will get encouragement regarding areas you are doing well in and feedback where you can improve your skills. You can learn a lot by listening and sharing with people who have had similar experiences. If you are new in recovery, you learn from people who have faced similar challenges to the ones you are currently facing. If you have been in recovery for a while, you can set a positive example for others.
Provides Accountability: When participating in aftercare, you become part of a community of individuals with similar goals. This community is good for providing support, as well as keeping you accountable. Conversations in aftercare can help you see that you could be on a risky path that could lead you to past behaviors. This can be something you are less likely to realize on your own.
Proven by Research: Research has shown that aftercare is effective in helping people in recovery. Studies show that regular aftercare participation once completing treatment is one of the best predictors of sustained recovery.
Many Types of Programs Available: With so many different aftercare programs available, you can choose one to suit your needs.
