How are aftercare plans developed? While engaged in inpatient treatment, clients work alongside our comprehensive team of therapists, counselors and physicians to develop a detailed plan that caters to all of their individual needs. One of the factors that will be considered in depth is which housing situation is the most appropriate. In the majority of cases, sober living housing is a viable next step in the overall, multi-phased treatment process. We highly recommend that while residing in a sober living house, our clients continue with our inpatient treatment (IOP) or outpatient (OP) programs. This provides ongoing clinical care, and allows clients to openly discuss any issues that may arise in a safe, supportive, therapeutic setting.
Immersion Recovery and Aftercare
While every aftercare program will look slightly different depending on the individual, there are some components of every aftercare program that remain consistent.
At Immersion Recovery Center, we encourage all of our clients to:
- Actively continue to participate in a 12 step program of their choosing – We require our clients to attend at least one 12 step meeting every day, and remain actively engaged in their stepwork. We require our clients to find a sponsor with ample sobriety under his or her belt. At Immersion Recovery Center, 12 step immersion is the cornerstone of our multi-phased treatment program.
- Participate in our Alumni Program – which was specially designed for those who have graduated from inpatient treatment and are looking for additional support as they continue on in their recovery journeys. Our Alumni Program keeps past clients connected through social media outlets, and we organize regular group meet-ups and recovery-friendly activities to keep our alumni engaged. We also offer a comprehensive list of resources for those in early recovery.
