Hesperia Continuing Care is necessary for anyone who has completed drug or alcohol rehab. This process is one that needs to continue for the rest of the person’s life because an addiction is something that can easily be fallen into in the future. For many, addiction is described by their genetics or by their mental makeup. Therefore, it can be hard to kick the addiction and equally hard not to turn back to it when one hits their stressor that made them turn to it in the past. Hesperia Continuing Care will give all post-rehab patients that strength and the help that they need to continue to say “no” to their old, dangerous habits.
Long-Term Benefits Provided by Hesperia Continuing Care
While Hesperia Continuing Care will not be as in-depth as inpatient or outpatient rehab was, it will still address the entire person by dealing with physical, emotional, mental and spiritual issues. It will also help to address any family or relational issues that could exist, or that could become problematic to recovery in the future. That is why we at First Step Recovery Center often recommend family or couples counseling to deal with the hurts and hardships that may exist in the home due to one person’s drinking or drugs problem. This type of counseling will give people a safe place where they can discuss their hurts and concerns and find a listening ear that will help them acknowledge and work through their disappointments with life and with individuals.
Of course, Hesperia Continuing Care focuses mainly on the affected individual and on the steps that he or she needs to take to continue living a clean life. Depending on the individual and on how rehab went, individual or group therapy may be recommended. The patient may take part in continuing art, music or sports therapy if that worked for him or her during rehab or they may transfer to a community program that has a proven success record for aftercare.
