What Happens After Adolescent Drug and Alcohol Rehab?
If your teen completed a residential adolescent drug and alcohol rehab program, you may be wondering, “what’s next?”
An abrupt shift from inpatient rehab can be startling for anyone in recovery, but it’s more pronounced with teens. Teens must return to school or extracurricular programs, putting them at risk of relapse from being around some of the same people or situations that contributed to their substance use.
Residential treatment is a significant component of successful recovery for a teen, but it’s just one part. To maintain long-term sobriety and reintegrate into school and society, teens need a comprehensive aftercare recovery plan that takes everyday stresses and risks to sobriety into account.
At Ember Recovery, an aftercare treatment plan is a continuing recovery plan that’s part of an individualized continuum of care to promote long-term recovery.
