CLIENT OPPORTUNITIES FOR AFTER CARE

InnerBalance Health Center’s addiction recovery treatment program provides clients with continued life coaching and nutrition support upon completion of the InnerBalance program. Clients receive:

  • 11 full hours of life coaching and/or nutrition coaching support sessions to help them in their ongoing recovery.
  • If living locally, clients also are able to attend weekly after care support groups facilitated by InnerBalance staff at the InnerBalance location.

Re-entry into “normal” life is frequently a very difficult transition for clients, whose life skills and recovery skills can be very new and weak, after only 28 days of treatment. To help clients achieve a higher level of support after completing our treatment program, ongoing professional support is often needed for clients to gain more skills that will allow them to lead lives of recovery and self-sufficiency. Evidence shows that:

  1. Having a solid support network of people and groups who are knowledgeable about addictions and
  2. Having clearly defined structure and activities is essential for long-term recovery.

Often, one or both of these pieces is missing from clients’ after care recovery plan and is one of the main reasons relapse occurs. If it is determined that your loved one needs additional help with these resources InnerBalance does not provide once treatment at InnerBalance is complete, would you consider helping your loved one in any of these areas? Please answer the following questions to help determine your loved ones options for recovery care after treatment.

Client Opportunities for After Care

  • Are you in support of your loved one continuing their recovery in an outpatient program if it is determined that this after care support will help them receive continuing skill-building and support needed to remain sober?
  • Are you in support of your loved one continuing their recovery in a sober living residential program if it is determined that this after care support will help them receive continuing skill-building and support needed to remain sober?
  • Are you in support of your loved one continuing their recovery by receiving ongoing support with an addictions specialist, mental health counselor, psychiatrist, or other specialist if it is determined that this after care support will help them receive continuing skill-building and support needed to remain sober?
  • Are you able and willing to financially support (either partially or in-full) your loved one in paying for the continuing after care resources they may need to help build long-term recovery skills and remain sober?

  • What is the monthly financial amount you are prepared and able to contribute toward their after care recovery plan? (Please provide a dollar range. This will help coaches and counselors be able to find financially viable/realistic resources that may meet the needs of your loved one).

  • DEFINITIONS:
    Sober Living:
    facilities used by people recovering from substance abuse which serve as an interim environment between rehab and their future lives. These facilities grew out of a need to have safe and supportive places in which people could live while they were in recovery. They are primarily meant to provide housing for people who have just come out of rehab (or recovery centers) and need a place to live that is structured and supporting for those in recovery (Retrieved on August 13, 2015 from wikipedia.org)
    Outpatient program: an intensive outpatient program (IOP) usually offers weekly group (and sometimes individual) therapy sessions at a drug rehab or outpatient facility. Clients receive addiction treatment, denial management and relapse prevention therapies and skills training. Many programs provide 3 targeted sessions per week for 6 to 8 weeks. IOPs can help enable people in recovery to continue their recovery skills following successful completion of a rehab program by offering accountability, a sober supportive community, and skills training.
    Sober companion: acts as an advocate for the newly recovering person and provides new ways for the client to act in their own living environment. Some providers stay with their clients for many months, and some offer only transportation services (for instance, to and from treatment facilities or sober living homes)....The sober companion's duties encompass a wide variety, from simply ensuring the client remains abstinent to serving as a resource broker in the client's home community (Retrieved on August 13, 2015 from wikipedia.org)

  • Family Input

    Though our program does not entail family therapy, we value your input and participation in your loved one’s treatment process. If you could take a few moments to complete the following questions, we would greatly appreciate any information, concerns, and insights you could provide our treatment team to better provide for the needs of your loved one.
  • What concerns do you have with your loved one’s behaviors that are associated with drinking and/or substance use?
  • Are there any additional problems or behaviors that you feel need to be addressed along with the client’s use of alcohol and/or other substances?
  • Is there any history you feel would be helpful for our team to know regarding family dynamics?
  • Your loved one may choose 1 family member to attend our 3 day family program at no additional charge. This program contains a significant amount of education, resources, and support provided and we highly recommend someone from the client’s family or primary support network attend. If your loved one chooses to have someone attend, will that person have the ability to attend?
