Bridges the Gap Between Treatment and Independence
There is a significant gap between post-treatment and independence. This leaves the individual in a vulnerable position with limited resources and a limited understanding of how to build a life of sobriety.
The type and quality of aftercare the recovering addict receives will play a major role in whether or not the individual remains sober. It is our mission to provide every individual with the right aftercare approach that will allow for the greatest chance of success.
Aftercare programs are designed not only to help the individual but also to provide education and support for the family members as well. The team at Pacific provides constant support and feedback for all involved.
Therefore, referrals for family members are often made to community-based recourses such as Al-Anon, Nar-Anon, or alternative strategies such as the CRAFT (Community Reinforcement And Family Training) approach. Addiction causes instability, therefore there needs to be a precise path to re-establish stability within the family.
After a recovering addict returns from treatment, there will be many questions and concerns. New habits, coping mechanisms and re-building relationships will be at the forefront. We strive to ensure a safe environment for all those who have concerns with this process and provide a platform for them to be expressed. Recovery is a long process, communication and support will play a huge role in the aftercare process.
Everyone goes through the healing process differently, Pacific offers many different recovery paths, depending on the individual. Alcoholics Anonymous, Narcotics Anonymous and SMART Recovery are just a few. With our customized approach, we identify the specific needs of the individual for his/her recovery. These programs allow for guidance, structure and accountability in one’s recovery, and each of them has something different to offer. These programs give the recovering addict an opportunity to connect with large therapeutic communities and peer support.
The transition from an inpatient facility to re-integrating back into society is a daunting task, our team provides different options of transitional residences, allowing individuals to gradually re-build their life. Living with others that have gone through similar experiences allows the individual to have continued support and illuminates that they are not alone.
There are many underlying factors which cause addiction, Pacific recognizes that there needs to be a bridge between mental health and addiction. We want the individual to succeed after their initial entry into recovery, our aftercare programs and Recovery Coaching, are aimed to ensure all aspects of the individual’s health are considered. The best possible aftercare outcome is through working with not only Pacific but other health care and recovery professionals.
