Aftercare Support

Aftercare is an important part of the recovery process, and should be thought of as continued treatment. Recovery from drug abuse and addiction doesn’t stop when a treatment period ends.

One of the most frequent questions we are asked is: what will happen when rehab finishes? The thought of having to adapt to life outside of rehab can seem daunting at first. It is natural to worry about how you are going to cope when you do not have access to twenty-four-hour care and support.

The good news is that we will still be here for you when your rehab programme ends. Fenton House offers free aftercare support for up to a year after treatment finishes. This means that you can visit the clinic on a regular basis to meet with your counsellor to discuss various issues that you are facing in sobriety.

Aftercare is not compulsory, but is strongly recommended. The first year of recovery is when you are most vulnerable to relapse. Having aftercare will vastly improve your chances of remaining free from your addiction. An aftercare counsellor can help you stabilise your recovery and stay focused. The early days of discharge from treatment can be very scary and overwhelming as you try to adjust to your new found sobriety. Life will seem completely different and you may experience difficult emotions and may find yourself in some tough situations. Having the professional support of an aftercare counsellor to help you through this can be invaluable to your recovery.

Ongoing Support and Help

There are many different kinds of aftercare treatment options at Fenton House which can help prevent relapse and expand upon the coping strategies learned during rehabilitation.

  • 12-step programs: Fellowship programs, such as Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) and Narcotics Anonymous (NA), provide support and encouragement for the individual on the road to recovery.
  • Outpatient treatment: The individual lives at home while attending treatment a few times a week when it is convenient for him or her.
  • Group counselling: The patient will listen to and share experiences associated with addiction and work to build social and coping skills in a group setting.
  • Individual therapy: The patient will meet one-on-one with a therapist to build upon progress made during initial treatment.
