Here at TTC Care, we want our patients to feel comfortable and confident after they graduate from our inpatient program and return to everyday life. We know that recovery is a lifelong process, so we start planning a detailed aftercare plan while they are still current patients at the facility.
Our Continuing Care Department helps patients transition into aftercare as smoothly as possible. This process starts as soon as a patient completes detox. Patients will continually meet with clinical liaisons until the discharge date arrives. This way, patients can build a relationship with their liaison, as well as their therapist. The three work together on a plan for a successful and ongoing recovery.
After discharge, patients will either go to an approved sober living home, return to their home or, if so desired, we will help them make other living arrangements. Many times, we have found that graduates of TTC Care want to make a new life in a new area instead of going back to an environment that reminds them of their old habits and lifestyle. In these cases, we fully support them in their quest to relocate.
Services Available in Our Addiction Recovery Aftercare Program
Our staff works together to create a personalized and effective aftercare plan for each patient. There are a variety of treatments and services that can be included in the plan. Here are some examples:
Individual and Group Therapy
We will help arrange ongoing appointments with a local therapist or counselor for one-on-one and group therapy sessions. This helps develop life skills and provides support. If a patient has been involved in our 12-step program, we can also refer them to local meetings so they can continue their work in AA or NA.
Dual Diagnosis Treatment
Patients who may have received a dual diagnosis while at TTC Care will be able to continue part of their treatment with the help of a local psychiatrist or therapist.
TTC Care offers a wide variety of holistic services to its patients. This includes treatments such as massage, acupuncture, yoga and physical therapy. Patients who are local to the West Palm Beach area can continue to receive holistic services after graduation at The Outpatient Treatment Center. For our long-distance patients, we will find appropriate holistic services in their area.
Court Liaison Program
Our Court Liaison Program assists individuals who may need help with legal issues. This program allows patients to primarily focus on getting well instead of getting caught up in the legal system.
Many aftercare plans include spiritual care, including connections to local pastoral counselors as well as Christ-centered 12-step meetings.
Many times, a person who is graduating a rehabilitation facility is simply starting over with a brand new life. We understand this and provide extra help, including food stamps and locating state health insurance and other free or low-cost community resources.
Because addiction is a disease that affects the entire family, we offer ongoing support and help to graduates so they can rebuild or improve their familial relationships. Family workshops are a part of many of the aftercare plans we design.
Structured Post-Inpatient Programs to Choose From
After graduating the TTC Care inpatient program, clients often choose from one of the four structured, ongoing treatment programs we have available:
Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP)
When a patient is in our IOP program, they are still overcoming addiction and receiving treatment for co-occurring disorders, but they no longer receive treatment at TTC Care. Instead, they visit The Outpatient Treatment Center, which allows them to live in a recovery residence or their own home while they work or attend school.
Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP)
PHP consists of five hours of therapy six days a week. This option is more structured than IOP. A patient in the PHP will spend the morning or afternoon in group therapy at The Outpatient Treatment Center. For PHP patients who work or go to school during the day, evening groups are available.
Outpatient Program (OP)
OP is for patients who have either come from another residential treatment facility or have been in our IOP or the GO Program for six months or longer. Outpatient clients attend sessions at The Outpatient Treatment Center and manage their lives independently.
Aftercare: An Essential Step in the Recovery Process
TTC Care believes strongly in aftercare: It’s just as critical to recovery from drugs and alcohol as any inpatient program. We believe that starting an aftercare plan can begin as soon as treatment begins.
