Emerging adults recovering from drug and alcohol addiction leave rehab armed with new life skills, better self-understanding and a commitment to stay sober. While they have begun to change, the world they face after rehab has not—so relapse remains a real possibility. At Elm Tree Recovery, we have a solution. Our aftercare program continues the progress made in residential rehab while supporting re-entry into education, work and family.
Structured Sober Living
Rehab is an intensive, highly structured environment where recovering young adults can concentrate on self-revelations and life lessons. For many, structure and support are the keys to making sobriety a permanent part of their lives. Elm Tree’s structured sober living provides a safe, drug-free environment and a community of sober companions who share and support the commitment to recovery.
The aftercare program at Elm Tree Recovery continues the individual treatments and group therapy that began in rehab with nine to 15 hours per week of intensive outpatient therapy. The IOP process may include:
- Relapse prevention
- Cognitive behavioral therapy
- Motivational interviewing
- Psychoeducation12-step program participation
Regular monitoring and drug testing also reinforce participants’ commitment to abstinence. Because continuing clinical treatment is so essential to young people with dual diagnosis conditions, Elm Tree aftercare includes the services of a case manager who sets up regular appointments and monitors attendance.
Academic & Vocational Coaching
The opportunity to pursue academic and vocational goals at nearby colleges and trade schools is a standout part of Elm Tree’s aftercare program. Participants receive academic and vocational coaching and support, including:
- Help obtaining a GED
- Vocational counseling
- Enrollment assistance
- Tutored study hall sessions
- Education & coping skills for college stressors
- Collegiate recovery programs
One of the main goals of Elm Tree Recovery’s aftercare program is the successful integration of our young adult participants into a happy, productive and sober life. Often, family members are unsure how to help or interact with a recovering individual. To address the needs of family members and bridge the gap left by addiction and recovery, Elm Tree aftercare also provides parent coaching services.
