Once you have successfully completed a program of treatment for drug and/or alcohol abuse, there is still a long way to go when it comes to sustaining sobriety for life. For individuals in recovery, the risk of relapse is present for weeks, months, and even years down the road. There is an especially increased risk when it comes to individuals with co-occurring disorders. The risk of falling into old patterns of addictive behavior and self-destruction is high whenever someone tries to return after treatment for addiction. To lessen this risk and allow your recovery to progress in the direction of lifelong sobriety, we recommend entering an aftercare program following your residential treatment.

Our outpatient aftercare program allows you to work on skills that will help you readjust to daily life, prevent relapse, and gain emotional stability. We will help you work on relationships with family, dealing with personal triggers and temptations, and managing anxiety or anger.


What are the Benefits of an Aftercare Program?

Transitioning from an inpatient addiction treatment facility back into daily life can be difficult. A sober living home will allow for this transition to be made more slowly and comfortably.

The flexibility offered in length of stay, partnered with the relationships you will forge within the outpatient environment will create a system of support that will be the backbone to your maintaining a sober life. Going straight from residential treatment back into the autonomy of daily life without a step in between can be jarring and potentially lead to resuming old addictive behaviors.

We recommend participating in such support groups as Alcoholics Anonymous or Narcotics Anonymous to gain a support system in addition to working a 12-step recovery program.

Why is Aftercare Important?

The likelihood of your maintaining a sober lifestyle depends greatly on the quality of aftercare you receive. When you being a drug and/or alcohol addiction rehab program, your treatment team will assist you in preparing for your graduation and beyond.

Our counselors will work with you early on in your program to create a plan of continuing care. These plans include support contacts as well as schedules of activity to occupy the days following treatment. We recommend beginning follow-up visits with your assigned therapist and recovery team following the first 30 days post-treatment. Participating in alumni programs and activities will also allow you to create a reliable network of resources in order to help you maintain your new sober lifestyle.

Outpatient Rehab and Relapse Prevention

You will have many obstacles to face once you begin readjusting to daily life. Stress and responsibilities can bring about urges and temptations. The support of aftercare will arm you with life skills and knowledge to confront these temptations, avoiding the risk of relapse. This along with your support system will prove incredibly helpful, especially during your first year of post-rehabilitation. Your choices for substance abuse treatment will have an effect on your life thereafter and your success at continuing your life of sobriety.


Don't Just Take Our Word For It

  • I'm from the suburbs of Chicago and have been in quite a few treatment centers. Circle of Hope is hands down the best and most comfortable rehab I have ever been in. Not to mention how caring and helpful all the staff are. The door to my counselors office was always open when ever you needed to talk. Everyone genuinely cares there and that’s what made it a special place for me. My four boys are going to get back their Sober and clean Dad back thanks to the help from Circle of Hope.

  • Circle of hope changed my life!! Great food, great staff, wonderful place! Awesome to get to know the amazing clients and see that i was not alone in my recovery. I made friends for life in the short time i got to spend there. Not a better facility anywhere in my opinion!!The team of employees, from the Technicians all the way up to the Owner, all have a patient first mentality.

  • Going to treatment at circle of hope was one of the best programs Ive participated in, they helped me get my life back. They have amazing staff and over all good natured people. They focus on all aspects of counseling , case management, meetings, different types of therapy, including trauma, one on one counseling. This is coming from someone who has been traumatized and neglected. They helped me get to the root of the problem. Which most times can feel very uncomfortable but they provide groups that you participate in and communicate to other addicts and hear their life stories. They really are an organization of team working to help heal the conflicted minds of us addicts that we faced everyday. I would highly recommend this treatment program to anyone suffering from substance abuse or mental health.
