Learn More About the Continuing Care Program at Acadiana Treatment Center
No matter what level of care you participate in during your time at Acadiana Treatment Center, you will be provided with the guidance and support you need to meet and exceed your goals for recovery after treatment. As part of our comprehensive approach, we view aftercare planning as a critical element of success, and we ensure that this facet of care is prioritized throughout the healing process.
Importance of Continuing Care
Why Continuing Care is Vital to the Recovery Process
We’ve all been told countless times that the journey to recovery is a lifelong process. This means that while your path to sober living may begin upon being admitted to our program, your commitment to sobriety is one that will need to be affirmed each day for the rest of your life.
The men and women who seek to heal at our Louisiana facility come from all types of backgrounds, and carry with them unique experiences, successes, and challenges that impact their resolve to live a recovered life. As such, our program staff is dedicated to helping all of our clients make a plan for continuing care that will allow them to continue to build upon the success they found during their time at our center.
What to Expect After Treatment
Aftercare Planning Upon the Completion of Treatment at Acadiana Treatment Center
For clients attending our residential treatment program, discharge recommendations are discussed prior to family week, which is usually held during the client’s third week of treatment. Then, on the last day of family week, the client and his or her family member will decide if they wish to accept the aftercare recommendations from our clinical team. Our staff will continue to work with the client to emphasize the importance of these recommendations, and if for some reason the client is unable to adhere to the recommended aftercare plan due to certain external factors (e.g. employment, family obligations, financial concerns, etc.), then the client’s therapist will provide other, more feasible options.
Regardless of what level of care you participate in at Acadiana, before your official discharge, your therapist will meet with you for an individual session to schedule any necessary appointments, and to finalize the transition plan. He or she will document your overall progress and note the recommendations for ongoing services. It is usually advised that clients stay within the recommended level of aftercare for a period of two years, and they are welcome to attend our Continuing Care group for as long as they may need.
You will leave our center with a clearly written, structured plan for the ongoing support you’ll need upon returning home from treatment. This vital transitional support will help bridge the gap between higher levels of care and more community-based supports such as 12-Step programming. This service is intended to help our clients and their family members work together to extend and solidify the gains made throughout treatment.
