What Happens After Treatment?
Transitions (change) are often the most difficult time for newly sober people to manage. At Harmony place, we assist our clients with making smooth transitions.
Once leaving the inpatient treatment center in West Palm Beach, people will enter phases such as the Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP), Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) and Outpatient Program (OP). Each of these levels are still connected to the treatment team and treatment plan set up during the time spent in residential. You don’t have to start over, you continue on, just with less programming sessions throughout the day and more time to do necessary things for yourself with the ultimate goal of returning to your life.
As the initial treatment plan was set up and created in the residential phase—a person has a much higher success rate in maintaining sobriety and not relapsing.
If the decision is to return home to West Palm Beach, the specific aftercare plan will be needed to be in place to help succeed prior to living in the same environment. If a decision is to stay closer to the newly created sober support from Harmony Place, then that will also need to be addressed. Practicalities such as school, work, relationships are all included in the comprehensive treatment plan.
Treatment plans are individually designed by a professional team and involve client input. They should be followed throughout all phases of treatment for optimal positive outcomes, though they are open to change due to circumstances.
