Caring for your active recovery is a priority. Relapse prevention starts and finishes with a great aftercare program.
Active recovery is a life built on cessation of drug and alcohol use whilst turning up for and engaging in a rich and meaningful life.
An aftercare plan is crafted for each individual in its detail. All of the details address behaviours that move a person towards a life free from active addiction. A person in active recovery is more likely to maintain healthy relationships, work or college life, physical, mental and emotional balance. They are more likely to stay stopped in all major life event of great joy, immense experiences and deep pain.
The Intervention Service clearly advocates that the whole family have a clear and open aftercare plan that lists recovery behaviours and relapse consequences. The help is available at every level for a person in active recovery. We know that inactive recovery behaviours lead to relpase, so the Intervention group is quick to gather and respond when a person ceases to engage with the treatment or recovery coach after care plan.
A typical plan will involve some or all of the following:
- recovery coach
- 12 step meetings
- Recovery ACT program
- SMART program
- Treatment centre after care meetings
Close relationship with full range of healthcare. G.P. dentist etc
Close attention to nutrition.
Regular and developing exercise and sport.
Personal development by way of learning and education.
Attention to making amends, tidying up the past, clearing debts and personal addiction induced consequences.
Attention to legal and social obligations.
The Intervention Service sees relapse as preventable with full and willing accetpance that addiction is treatable and not curable, that all behaviours need to be attached to values of recovery, health, family and work.
Relapse is inevitable with no meaningful changes in all areas of a persons life, such that they will always gravitate back to chemical use with not aftercare plan in place and in use.
