Substance abuse aftercare is a crucial component to lifetime recovery. Our goal at Sanford House is to offer quality care in a safe and supportive environment as an individual goes through our treatment programs. However, this is only a small part of the necessary long-term, continuing care for recovery. Before completing treatment, clients will meet with their counselor to develop a personal addiction aftercare recovery plan which will include resources for support and options for a healthy lifestyle to ensure they remain successful in their journey in recovery. Some clients may choose outpatient or intensive outpatient services as part of their continuing care. Clients will learn how they can acquire support through sponsors, peer recovery coaches, recovery support groups, on-line recovery resources, and other resources of their choosing.
