THE IMPORTANCE OF CONTINUING CARE
Completing a residential treatment program is a major accomplishment and a key step in establishing true and lasting recovery. But this is just the first step and your full recovery will require continual attention, especially during the transition from Sabino Recovery to the next phase of your life.
Preparing to engage in your life after treatment is as important as the treatment you receive. It is imperative that you set yourself up for success with the support you will need. Your transitional continuing care plan allows you to practice applying the new knowledge, tools and strategies learned in treatment.
Many of the things you learn here will profoundly change you and you will need the time and support to understand how to access those changes and bring them into your life in very real, everyday ways.
Our Continuing Care Program
Continuing Care Group
You will meet weekly with the Continuing Care Coordinator for interactive and educational sessions about the importance of ongoing care, and work to identify personal triggers which will naturally happen once you leave, as well as recognize unhealthy boundaries and life patterns and work on creating new ones. You will also create a plan for healthier supportive social networks, interests, and passions that reinforce your recovery, improve coping responses, employment, and other activities that provide a sense of worth and self-esteem.
Weekly Primary Therapist One-on-One
As you move through the program here at Sabino Recovery, you and your treatment team will begin to understand what therapies you respond to and benefit from. This allows you to build a plan that will incorporate these therapies into your everyday life at home. Every week you will meet with your therapist and as part of your session, you will be working on your personal plan for life after Sabino Recovery.
Weekly Continuing Care Coordinator One-on-One
A minimum of three of the five weeks of your stay, you will be meeting with the Continuing Care Coordinator to discuss your progress and what transitional programs, therapies, and modalities that will be best to help ensure your continued recovery. You and the treatment team will search for and identify programs, support groups, and modalities where you intend to live and search for programs that fit within your resources with the goal of setting up appointments before your discharge. You will also identify a range of personal interests and goals such as social group, volunteer opportunities, school, and hobbies to help you thrive.
Before you discharge, you will have a sustainable, recovery-focused, self-care plan that will help ensure your continued health. If, after you get home or to a transitional program and things are not working out, we are here for you to help you find different options that are better suited for your needs.
