Relapse prevention planning (also known as aftercare planning) is the process wherein someone makes specific plans that will help them succeed. Because recovery is different for everyone, prevention planning can also look different. At Avalon Malibu, we place a large emphasis on prevention planning. This is because we’ve seen the way it sets our clients up for success and helps them maintain recovery.
Relapse Prevention Planning
Aftercare is always part of someone’s treatment plan at Avalon Malibu. We understand that recovery can become even more challenging once you leave addiction treatment. Because of this, we do everything in our power to make sure that our clients feel confident and have an effective plan in place.
One unique thing about our services is that we emphasize aftercare even from the start of someone’s treatment. This means that individuals are able to have multiple discussions with their team about their individualized aftercare plan.
Key Elements of Aftercare Plans
There are a variety of different things that can be included in someone’s specific aftercare plan. Some people will already know what support group they’re going to attend. This can be an important piece of the aftercare puzzle. Another thing that relapse prevention plans often include is a list of support people. This list can be a helpful reminder that individuals do have people who are rooting for them and who can help provide accountability.
One important thing that can be included in someone’s plan is alumni support. At Avalon Malibu, we have an extensive network of alumni who are passionate about helping others succeed and remain sober.
