What Happens After Rehab?
Once a client has completed a 30- day residential treatment program which include the detox phase, they are highly encouraged to continue following the treatment plan set up with them and suggested by the clinical team at Harmony Place. The 30- day residential program lays the foundation and allows the body to heal from toxins, while continued care is crucial to maintain sobriety.
Once leaving residential treatment center in Philadelphia, people will enter phases such as Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP), Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) and Outpatient Program (OP) –where each level has a carefully structured plan for creating optimal results for returning to everyday life.
People who leave rehab without a continued care plan can relapse because the transition back to their lives is too radical being newly clean and sober. By following a treatment plan that gradually shifts and adjusts in needed changes for a sober life—a person has a much higher success rate.
Think about it—someone who has been using almost daily for five years might need more than 30 days to get it all together. A specific aftercare plan will be needed to be in place to help succeed when returning home to Philadelphia.
A continued care treatment plan is started when a person enters Harmony Place, and a complete and ongoing assessment is made by the clinical and medical staff. As a person goes through detox and residential phases, they will be able to assist the onsite team and be able to determine appropriate length of stay, individual needs, and any logistical challenges that may arise.
Treatment plans are individual and should be followed closely, though they are open to change due to circumstances. The most common and widely used tool for helping stay sober is creating and maintaining a support group. Popular for obtaining long- term sobriety is 12 -Step groups, which are all over Philadelphia and surrounding areas. When creating a treatment plan with the clinical team and case managers while in rehab, it will be important to set up and find meetings in your area.
To find 12-Step meetings in Philadelphia, you can access them online or call. From N. 63rd or Frankford to Willits, there are several Alcoholics Anonymous and Narcotics Anonymous 12 -Step meetings at all hours of the day.
There are other sober groups and people turn to their church or religious fellowship as well. Throughout the treatment process, your family will be more educated with what you are going through as an addict, and when you return from rehab treatment, they can be better supportive through the adjustment period.
