We’re there for our alumni. Even when they’re not here.
Whatever your needs or situation may be, we’re ready to work with you.
When clients complete their treatment program, they may need to go back to their home state because of family, work, or financial obligations. Other clients may want to stay local to continue with their sobriety. Regardless of where you need to be when your program is completed, we will be there to help assist in your aftercare.
At Genesis House, we understand the importance of aftercare for our clients. We know that when clients transition out of treatment and back into the real world, aftercare services make that process much easier. Along with helping to ease the transition, aftercare is important for those recovering from substance use disorders for the following reasons:
Therapeutic work can continue — You began therapeutic work while in treatment, but just because your program has finished does not mean that your therapeutic work is finished. Remaining connected to therapeutic services like seeing a therapist regularly can help you maintain your sobriety by continually working on the mental, emotional, and spiritual aspects of yourself and the world around you.
Connection to the recovery community remains — You will develop strong bonds with other clients here at Genesis House, showing you just how imperative it is to have friends in recovery who can hold you accountable and be a shoulder to lean on. Continuing to stay in touch with these individuals regularly, as well as working to establish a firm standing in your own local recovery community, can keep you rooted in your recovery at a time when you may feel most vulnerable.
Your odds of long-term sobriety increase — Studies show that the longer a person remains in treatment, the more likely they are to uphold long-term sobriety. Aftercare serves as a form of addiction treatment, as it continues to provide you with resources and skills to maintain your sobriety. So, when you remain involved in aftercare, you are growing your chances of staying sober for the long haul.
Aftercare at Genesis House
At Genesis House, we value the importance of aftercare just as much as we do any other portion of addiction treatment. That is why we make sure to offer as much aftercare support as we can to each and every one of our clients. Some of the most beneficial aftercare services utilized in treatment centers like ours include the following:
Help finding sober living — Sober living is one of the best ways to reintegrate back into everyday life after addiction treatment. Part of your aftercare, if necessary, can include someone helping you find a sober living home that meets your specific needs.
Hosting meetings — Treatment facilities are known to host 12-Step meetings on-campus and within the local community. Doing this allows current clients and alumni to meet with one another, share, listen, and develop bonds with one another.
Alumni programming — Alumni programming focuses on providing clients with opportunities to remain connected to the facility. This might include annual cookouts, events, meetings, or other activities that bring the treatment facility’s community together.
We place just as much focus on the aftercare that you receive as we do the treatment programming you obtain with us here at Genesis House. We are excited to see what you do with your sober life!
