What is aftercare?

Aftercare describes the therapy and treatment after the main rehab programme has been completed.  Aftercare can cover a broad range of interventions and most importantly it ought to be tailored to suit the need of the individual.

Latest research clearly demonstrates that engagement in an aftercare programme whether that be as part of a group or simply individual sessions greatly improves the chance of long term recovery.

Aftercare is designed to assist in the transition from rehab to real life with the right support.  In the past, many have made great progress in rehab but have found it hard to maintain those changes having left treatment due to the stresses of the real world.  Aftercare softens this transition and acts as a helping hand when facing obstacles in early recovery.

When making any change there are several steps.  Firstly, there is the thought about making the change; next is the decision to change and thirdly the action of change.  Last but not least is the maintenance of change.  It is this part which aftercare concentrates on.  How many people are great at losing weight, only to put it back on again? To maintain behaviour change requires on-going commitment and maintenance and we know if those changes are maintained in the early days of change, it is highly likely that the individual will be successful in their on-going recovery.

"An unassuming house in the heart of Boscombe where miracles happen. From my initial talk with Paul, the admission process with Jon and my induction with Darryl, I was treated with compassion, empathy and understanding. All the staff had been in the same position as me!...If you are looking for a wealth of experience and knowledge around addiction, a safe environment to turn your life around and a solid foundation for your ongoing recovery you will not be disappointed.”
"Today my husband Paul is 1 year clean and sober thanks to The Providence Projects, he has found himself again and is living the life he deserves. " A life beyond his wildest dreams "… He initially signed up for 1 month but soon realised he needed a further 2 months. Paul has been dedicated and followed the advice given to him. He would not be here today if he hadn't been to The Providence Projects. I cannot thank or praise the program and staff enough…”
"A very special place, with wonderful staff. 3 years on life is amazing. Thank you so much for everything you all did for me. Alcohol dependant and a chronic gambler the Provi gave me a platform to turn life around and that it has, meaningful relationships, wonderful friends and most importantly peace of mind. You told me good things would happen and they have - and continue to do so. Highly recommended..."
