Why Is Aftercare for Alcohol Recovery Important?, Cleveland, Tennessee

The completion of an alcohol recovery program is an incredible milestone. However, completing a program doesn’t mean you’re cured; instead, it’s the beginning of a better future. From an alcohol monitoring system to counseling, aftercare is essential for long-term success in recovery and in returning to a regular, healthy routine.

Guide to Aftercare in Alcohol Recovery

What Aftercare Entails

Aftercare consists of a custom plan designed to begin once your primary treatment has been completed. Its purpose is to support your ongoing recovery through important services, often including an alcohol monitoring system.

Service will be chosen depending on the individual’s unique needs. Common services include the following:

  • Vocational rehab for successful employment
  • Legal or educational assistance
  • Therapy or counseling
  • Help in securing safe housing
  • Medically assisted treatments
  • Accountability through monitoring
  • Social support groups

Why It’s Important

alcohol monitoring systemAftercare programs help individuals get past the most common causes behind relapse. Alcoholism is an incurable condition, so people need to be diligent about proactively avoiding situations that would leave them vulnerable. For example, lack of employment or safe housing will significantly increase the likelihood of a relapse, so the program will help secure these.

An alcohol monitoring system, such as an alcohol bracelet or ignition interlock system, keeps a level of accountability so the individual is encouraged to stay sober. Programs like counseling and peer support provide them with emotional support and help them overcome the mental aspects of alcoholism while providing another level of accountability.
