Addiction can be treated, but true recovery is a lifelong process. It’s estimated that as many as 85 percent of people who seek drug and alcohol treatment relapse within a year or treatment. Addiction, therefore, requires ongoing treatment and long-term aftercare programs. These types of treatments that focus on lifelong sobriety have a much greater chance of success when it comes to relapse prevention, and offer a person’s best chance at long-term recovery. That’s why at Futures, we provide ongoing care for our Alumni Community for the long-term, beyond just the first 30-90 days. Once you’re a part of our family, we’re with you every step of the way.
Recovery coaching is a type of patient-directed treatment that pairs each client with a recovery coach whose main aim is to keep the client focused on individual recovery goals. A relationship with a recovery coach is especially important in the early days of recovery because the coach can help ease the transition back into regular life, including with things like navigating social situations and managing the stresses of everyday life.
The main goal of our relapse prevention program is to teach clients how to manage triggers. Triggers include things like work, the holidays, finances, favorite bars, and other things that cause stress or remind a person of using, and that might prompt a relapse. In relapse prevention, clients learn valuable skills like identifying individual triggers and more effective coping mechanisms to deal with them.
Sober Living and Transitional Living
Inpatient programs are a very effective way for people to get sober when they’re struggling with addiction because it’s a sober and temptation-free environment. But not everybody is ready to get right back into regular life after inpatient treatment, and that’s where transitional and sober living environments can help. These temporary homes are places where former addicts can live together and get access to continued support and treatment, and they also have rules and guidelines in place to keep residents safe and sober.
