The basic goals of treatment are to arrest your addiction, help you heal, and safely return you to your life. Obviously, there’s a lot more to it, but in general, we seek to accomplish exactly that. Aftercare is often the key ingredient to ensure a safe transition from residential treatment. With numerous options for ongoing care, our aftercare programs are unique in three critical ways. First, you work with the same team you had while in residential. Second, we build a customized aftercare plan to address your specific clinical needs. And third, we set up the program around your schedule so it doesn’t interfere with your forward progress in recovery. These three notable program characteristics make our approach to aftercare quite singular and more effective. And unlike traditional aftercare programs, we focus on the individual, not just group therapy.
Aftercare at 1 Method Center consists of two non-residential treatment options, our Day and Night Patient Programs, and one residential option, which is Sober Living. These all, collectively, have a unique place on the treatment continuum of care. It’s best to think about the treatment spectrum like a pyramid, with the most structured levels of care representing the top of the pyramid. As you meet treatment goals you continually “step down” to a less structured, lower level of care, until you have safely navigated down all the steps of the pyramid to solid ground, which in this analogy, symbolizes achieving a solid foundation in recovery. Because of the effectiveness of our one on one and highly customized treatment process, not everyone requires the supportive aftercare services we provide. However, in many situations, these programs are critical ingredients for success.
