Rehab Aftercare Services in Atlanta, GA
We Continue to Support Your Recovery After Your Rehab Treatment
Recovering from an addiction is a lifelong process. Completing rehab is a monumental step and one you should feel proud of, but it’s not unusual to feel anxious about leaving and returning to the outside world. At Mount Sinai, we will continue to support you once your rehab treatment is over. We know that leaving rehab means you might have more exposure to temptations. It’s important that you have a support system that will continue to encourage your recovery.
A major component of our aftercare program is family involvement. Families are included in effective aftercare planning and post discharge services. Our Aftercare Coordinator contacts involved family members to include them in the aftercare process. Families are educated on the types of aftercare services available in their area, and the treatment team recommendations for the continued care of their loved one.
Creating a Successful Aftercare Program
The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) has outlined the core components of a successful aftercare program. These include:
- Health – Keeping up with your physical and mental health.
- Home – Creating a safe, comfortable home environment where people can feel secure and separated from temptations.
- Purpose – Finding a cause that motivates you to move forward, whether through school, work, family responsibility, or productive hobby.
- Community – Having a community that will support your recovery and be there for you during the difficult times. At Mount Sinai, we can help you find resources and support groups in your community.
You are not alone once you leave rehab. There are always people out there who understand the struggles you are going through and will be there to help you through them.
Mount Sinai also has alumni services where rehab graduates can return once a week to share their experiences. Your recovery is important to us and we will help however we can.
