Follow Up Sessions

What Happens After Addiction Treatment?

Many people think that addiction treatment is just getting clean. What they may not understand is that sobriety is a lifelong commitment – one you have to work at every single day. Without the proper support systems in place, maintaining one’s recovery can be challenging. This is where follow up sessions become an integral part of an addiction treatment plan.

What are Follow Up Sessions?

Follow up sessions are a type of aftercare or ongoing treatment for addiction recovery. Once an initial treatment plan has been completed, it’s important to create new systems for day-to-day life. Each and every one of these systems should put your sobriety above everything else. As you unlearn your bad habits and avoid old temptations, you get the opportunity to build a new lifestyle. You’ll also check in to see if medications need to be adjusted or if your treatment plan should be updated as you progress.

Group Meetings in Addiction Aftercare

Part of this process should involve establishing a sober support network by attending local meetings, such as a 12-Step group or SMART Recovery programs. By getting plugged into the community, people hold themselves more accountable and feel a greater responsibility for their sobriety. In these meetings, you’ll also be surrounded by people who understand your personal battle with substance use and who can relate on a personal level.
