A Full and sustained recovery is possible with the help of Abstain Alcohol Detox Aftercare generally refers to the care that is provided after the client has completed the detox. Many home detox providers do not deliver aftercare as part of the treatment but tend to signpost on to other services or peer support groups.
Abstain are ethically bound to give our clients the best chance at recovery and have included the aftercare programme as part of the treatment journey. This is to provide our client the best opportunity at staying in recovery long enough for the new coping strategies and life skills to take hold.
Staying focused on your recovery plan is critical for best outcomes.There are also many steps that recovering alcoholics can take themselves to minimize the likelihood of relapse. The aftercare package provided by Abstain is divided into two distinct parts where you will be educated on the risks and causes of relapse to help you avoid relapsing.
Part One is delivered as part of the treatment programme and consists of six sessions on relapse prevention, family dynamics and education on the physical and psychological effects of alcohol on the individual and their family.
Part two is all about you taking control of your recovery. Abstain can help you to identify a peer support group that can help you to stay motivated as well as offer a further six week programme for those who would benefit from a little more intensive help.
Steps for the Individual Sobriety is not a single action, but rather a continuous chain of actions and decisions made throughout a recovering alcoholic’s life. Many in recovery find that sobriety is hardest to maintain early in the process, and gradually grows easier as new habits, relationships, and routines are formed.
The vast majority of support groups are classified as 12-Step programs. These programs generally break down recovery into steps that all members are expected to follow.
12-Step programs are modelled after Alcoholics Anonymous, by far the best known and most widely attended substance abuse group in the world. While Alcoholics Anonymous in particular and 12-step programs in general are the most popular support groups, Many other groups are available for individuals who feel a different approach would work best for them.
SMART recovery provide a very good alternative to AA and 12 step but can also be done in parallel with 12 step. Although it is difficult to accurately gauge the success rate of individual groups, studies have shown that regularly attending a support group substantially increases the likelihood that a recovery alcoholic will remain sober.
