Going to a treatment facility is the first and most important step for many in their recovery, but it is only one step. The 30 to 90 days most individuals spend in a treatment facility is only a very small period of time compared to the many years that follow in recovery. For many, adjusting to life after rehab proves more challenging, especially the loss of the Square One Clinics routine and the reappearance of external factors and influences.
Square One Clinics’ Aftercare program allows the client to continue receiving therapy and counseling after leaving treatment which is extremely critical. It is generally advised for newly recovering individual to attend weekly sessions, gradually reducing frequency to bi-weekly and monthly as time goes on and their recovery is more secure. Therapy and counseling are especially important for recovering clients with a dual diagnosis with an additional mental health condition, who need treatment for both.
