Transitioning Back Into Life After Treatment

Addiction can be a painful and isolating experience. At Avalon Malibu, we want to be a source of light and healing to help you recover. In recovery, you will learn various new skills to help you feel empowered. With the help of your personalized treatment plan, we believe you have what it takes to recover. Addiction recovery is a life-long journey, so we understand that challenges may arise after treatment. We hope to prepare you for a successful life after treatment so as not to need to return, but there is no shame if you need to. Reaching out for help is always a brave choice to make and we are here to help. 

Support for a Successful Life After Treatment

If Avalon Malibu is the right fit for your addiction treatment, we have the tools to help you heal. We utilize a variety of methods to treat addiction and co-occurring mental health conditions. Your health and well-being are our priority, and we strive to make your stay with us comfortable as you work to heal from addiction. We know the importance of high levels of support while you are in treatment, but we also know the importance of a smooth transition back into life after treatment for long-term recovery.

If you are hesitant to begin your recovery for fear of the unknown, we want to assure you that your concerns are valid and also remind you that your recovery will be worth the temporary discomfort of treatment. We will do our best to support you throughout your stay with us as well and prepare you for life after treatment to ensure you are ready to make the transition from our program back into your daily life.

Addiction Recovery Relapse Prevention

After completing addiction treatment, relapse prevention can be crucial to long-term recovery. An online book publication, Addiction Relapse Prevention by Nicholas Guenzel and Dennis McChargue, discussed addiction and relapse prevention. This source stated the following:

Relapse prevention is an essential part of addiction recovery. Frequent relapses may prevent individuals from progressing in overcoming their addiction. Although relatively little is known about brain functioning in addiction recovery, sustained abstinence likely allows time for the brain to resume normal functioning that can lay the foundations for long-term success.

The above quote emphasizes the importance of relapse prevention for long-term recovery. This source also explained that if a relapse does occur, there are three stages: emotional, mental, and physical relapse. The online book explains that, in treatment, it is important that the individual in recovery is taught various skills. This can help them to work through the possible challenges that may arise to avoid reoccurring relapses. At Avalon Malibu, we create aftercare plans for our clients. We believe this step is vital to support you in your recovery journey and ensure a successful life after treatment.

Aftercare Planning

Addiction treatment at Avalon Malibu involves a high level of care and support to help you heal and overcome your addiction. We want to prepare you for a successful life after treatment by creating an aftercare plan that is tailored to you and your needs. Aftercare plans can provide you with support and services to help ease you back into daily life outside of treatment. We know recovery is a lifelong journey. This means your aftercare plan can also provide you with referrals to support groups as well as outpatient resources. 

We know addiction is a complex diagnosis, and oftentimes, having peer support can be beneficial in the recovery process. Support groups or alumni support groups can be a great source of connection with other people who understand the challenges of addiction and can be there for you through your victories in recovery, too. One study discussed the importance of support groups in recovery. This source said the following:

The natural propensity of human beings to congregate makes group therapy a powerful therapeutic tool for treating substance abuse, one that is as helpful as individual therapy, and sometimes more successful. One reason for this efficacy is that groups intrinsically have many rewarding benefits—such as reducing isolation and enabling members to witness the recovery of others—and these qualities draw clients into a culture of recovery. Another reason groups work so well is that they are suitable especially for treating problems that commonly accompany substance abuse, such as depression, isolation, and shame.

The above quote confirms that support groups have a positive therapeutic impact on individuals in recovery. There are various other ways that aftercare plans can prepare you for life after treatment. Some examples include integrating involvement in the community into your recovery, exploring continued education about recovery, and attending recovery-focused events. We hope to support you in the ways you need so as not to need to return to treatment. However, it is always brave to reach out for help when you need it, and we will be here to help you if you need us.

At Avalon Malibu, we understand that addiction is a complex diagnosis, and treatment may seem intimidating. We want to assure you that your recovery from addiction will be worth the temporary discomfort of the unknown. During your time in treatment, we offer various methods to help you heal from addiction and co-occurring mental health disorders. While you are in our care, we make sure to offer high levels of support, but we also know support is important after treatment. Before you are discharged, you will be prepared for life after treatment with relapse prevention and an aftercare plan to ensure you transition back into life after treatment successfully.
