Aftercare

Enhance Your Recovery with Aftercare from The House of the Rising Son

Recovery from substance abuse is a long-term process. It doesn’t end the moment you complete a residential rehab program. Instead, you’ll need to continue working on maintaining your sobriety by creating a solid aftercare plan.

The House of the Rising Son can help you with this. We offer several comprehensive aftercare services that will help you transition back into your daily life without disrupting your recovery. Keep reading to learn more about how we can help.

What Does Aftercare Mean?

Put simply, aftercare is an action plan that’s meant to support patients in the parts of their recovery that occur after residential rehab. Aftercare plans can be split into several phases. For example, you might start by spending your days at a rehab center and your nights at home. As time goes on, you can gradually transition into giving yourself more and more freedom.

Successful aftercare programs are designed to prevent relapse and help the patient cope with the triggers, stresses, and cravings found in everyday life. They often involve treatments like:

  • Individual and group counseling sessions
  • 12-Step work
  • Living in a sober living house for some time
  • Participating in events and workshops at the facility where you completed rehab

Who is Aftercare For?

All patients who are recovering from substance abuse need aftercare. It’s an essential part of bridging the gap between the successes you’ve had in rehab and the ones you’d like to have in the real world. It doesn’t matter whether you’ve struggled with addiction to drugs, alcohol, or prescription painkillers, aftercare is a necessary part of your recovery process.

What are PHP and IOP Programs?

As you consider which aftercare plan is right for your needs, you may begin seeing phrases like PHP (partial hospitalization program) and IOP (intensive outpatient program). These are programs that ask patients to spend their days at a treatment center and their nights at home. They differ from residential rehab in that patients get some freedom at night and on the weekend.

PHPs and IOPs are excellent transitionary steps between normal life and the work that you’ve done in rehab. They give you the opportunity to continue benefiting from regular therapy, group activities, and 12-Step program meetings while still being able to sleep in your own bed at night and spend time with your family.

What Happens in PHP and IOP Programs?

Generally speaking, PHP and IOP programs function very similarly to normal residential rehab. At the House of the Rising Son, our aftercare programs include self-help meetings, fun outings, off-site activities, and drug and alcohol counseling, among other things. Ultimately, you should envision aftercare programs like these as an extension of your residential rehab. They are the next step in the process of reclaiming your life.

Is a PHP or IOP program right for me?

Only you can decide whether an IOP or PHP is right for you. However, we strongly recommend that you at least consider signing up for one. These types of programs can provide recovering patients with a large number of benefits that aren’t available through other types of aftercare.

Most importantly, PHP and IOP programs bring a sense of structure to your recovery process. In them, you’ll continue spending most of your time working on your recovery in a concrete way. This doesn’t happen for most people who choose to go without a PHP or IOP program. Ultimately, that means that if you want to maximize your chances of maintaining your sobriety for the long term, signing up for a PHP or IOP plan is the only way to go.

All of this is to say that signing up for either a PHP or IOP program is a good idea for virtually every patient who has already completed residential rehab. If you’re ready to commit to one of these programs, then consider doing so at the House of the Rising Son.

What Makes Aftercare at The House of the Rising Son Different?

We do things a little differently at the House of the Rising Son. This starts with the way that we provide personalized care to every one of our patients. When you choose us for your aftercare plan, you’ll get the opportunity to consult with highly trained physicians who specialize in recovery from addictive substances.

Our medical experts can identify your specific risk factors and opportunities for growth. Then, we’ll work with you to design a plan that is targeted to help you get the most out of your aftercare program.

Ultimately, we’ll likely recommend that you sign up for a plan that involves spending your days at our facility and your nights at home. Although this can sometimes feel restrictive, it’s truly an important part of ensuring that you maintain your sobriety.

That being said, our aftercare programs include more than therapy, counseling, and 12-step work. Although they do include all three of these, they also include fun outings, beach walks along the beautiful Southern California coast, and other fun off-site activities. Collectively, features like these make our aftercare plans something that you’ll actually enjoy participating in.
