Is Rehab Aftercare Important?

Aftercare post Rehab is vital, so stay connected. Remember as you leave treatment your recovery begins and gets much more challenging, so you will require support.

Rehab aftercare programs are an integral part of continuing care for the recovering addict or alcoholic.  Staying connected to Hope Rehab Center Thailand, and your recovery-coach after completing your program will help improve success. In addition to using the recovery tools you learn, we emphasise that the personal support service we provide, will aid the recovering addict with additional and crucial support exactly when it is needed: 24 hours a day, every day.

I am still in contact with the first clients that I helped get clean and sober. They check in from time to time which is heart warming and always gives me a thrill. We have a connection that will last forever.

Recovery Planning at Hope Rehab Thailand

Recovery planning is one crucial tool all clients must map out during their last days at Hope Rehab Center. Clients identify specific triggers which might result in relapse and develop a personalised recovery plan specific to their addiction and their new lifestyle, whether at home or abroad. Clients can opt for Rehab aftercare online support service as well as personalised counseling and support via Skype or phone support. Smart aftercare services are effective in preventing painful relapse and are considered essential in the recovery process.

We recognise the chances of relapse are high based on historical averages. These may vary client to client but have some common contributing factors; they include but are not limited to:

  • The client’s drug(s) of choice.

  • The period of time the client has been using.

  • The prior frequency of use and severity of their Rock Bottom.

  • The amount of time (and personal commitment) spent at Hope Rehab.

  • One’s willingness to change.

  • His/her lifestyle and environment after rehabilitation.

Facing the Wreckage Left Behind Following Addiction

Long term drug and alcohol use typically affects the addict in many ways. There are many issues the recovering addict must face after profession rehabilitation is complete.  Financial problems are common and must be addressed usually after treatment. This adds undue stress as the reality of the situation sets in and must be dealt with in a timely manner by using Rehab Aftercare services.

There are also psychological issues with returning to the same environment which can often act as a powerful trigger to most recovering addicts.  Social issues such as friends that use and common meeting places associated with using must be minimised or eliminated whenever possible. This is often an extremely difficult and painful process for the recovering addict because it requires a complete change in habits and lifestyle. Breaking old personal bonds and discovering productive new ones is essential to supporting the recovery process.

In relapse prevention you will learn about the following:

  • Recognition of relapse triggers.

  • How to manage cravings.

  • Social networking in recovery.

  • Thinking through a relapse.

  • Managing a budget.

  • Coping with stress.

  • Conflict resolution.

  • Coping with depression.

  • Changing negative self-talk.

  • Finding worthwhile activities.

  • Life skills.

  • Staying safe.

  • Health.

  • Decision making.

Rehab Aftercare Groups

We suggest all clients completing Rehab attend recovery groups – nothing beats the power of the group, together we are stronger. In addition we can refer you to counseling and therapy to continue the work you have started at Hope Rehab Center Thailand.

For the above mentioned reasons, Hope Rehab Center Thailand places a lot of emphasis on the post program recovery process with a focus on individual needs to help ensure success in recovery both in the client’s short and long term recovery plan.

Remember the acronym HALT, very dangerous relapse triggers:
