Advanced Recovery Track
Most people in addiction recovery don’t get the long-term care they need. Some patients may only have a few days of detox or a few weeks of inpatient treatment and believe they are free from addiction. Some patients may even be overconfident about their early recovery once they leave residential treatment.
However, recovery is lifelong and the process isn’t that easy. Relapse can be a part of the addiction recovery process, no matter how long they’ve been in recovery. Considerable time, at least 3 months of treatment on average, is needed to thrive on the road to recovery.
Benefits of Advanced Recovery Track
The Treatment Center Outpatient Services created the Advanced Recovery Track to help patients who have had previous experience in treatment facilities and a history of relapse.
The Advanced Recovery Track provides a more focused and specific continuum of care. Our licensed therapists and addiction professionals provide extra support and helps patients explore their relapse patterns to identify negative behaviors so they can make healthier, positive changes.
The Six Stages of Addiction Recovery
Addiction recovery is a lifelong process. For patients entering our facility, they may be at varying stages of their recovery or move back and forth between stages; the stages aren’t linear.
Below is an explanation of those stages:
- Stage 1: Pre-contemplation
During the pre-contemplation stage, people are more likely to ignore they have a problem and minimize or justify their actions, while minimizing the consequences of those actions.
During the contemplation stage, people are aware of the problem and the heavy impact their addiction is having on themselves and those around them.
During the preparation stage, patients begin to recognize that they are responsible for the decisions they make and have the ability and the willpower to change them. This is when support groups and therapeutic interventions play a key role in the recovery process.
During the action stage, patients are usually engaged in activities that keep their mental, physical and emotions positive. This is the stage when patients readapt and begin living a healthier and soul nurturing lifestyle.
During the maintenance stage, patients are still very active in groups and healthy activities and sustaining these positive habits, while being more aware of triggers and stressors that could lead to relapse.
During the termination stage, most patients can truly feel comfortable walking the road to recovery more independently, but still with the support of therapists, other alumni, sponsors, family and friends.
At The Treatment Center Outpatient Services, we ultimately want our patients to grow at any stage of recovery and focus on maintaining their sobriety. If after leaving our outpatient program our alumni ever feel uncomfortable, they are always welcome to come back and take advantage of our services. (844) 211-7944
