Once the patient has completed tapering and no longer needs medication therapy, our program offers all patients an aftercare counseling program without charge. Aftercare has no time limit, but the patient will be required to have and pay for regular drug screens (at cost). The purpose of aftercare is to help the patient continue to focus on a drug-free lifestyle and to explore satisfying alternatives to drug use. We believe that providing after care at no cost helps our patients have the highest chance of success, as patients never lose access to counseling as needed, community classes, 12-step meetings, etc. These are all crucial in rebuilding and maintaining a life in recovery.
