What’s Included in the Extended Care program at Sustain Recovery?Leave a Comment
Extended care services provide a critical buffer between the initial stay at a residential inpatient treatment facility and returning home. Young adults and adolescents suffering from drug addiction are put at an disadvantage if they quickly return to their old neighborhoods. The same stresses and triggers which helped catalyze their addictions originally are still there. Immersion in that environment without the adequate skills and tools preparation can lead to relapse. Extended care continues the treatment and therapy started in treatment, allowing a recovering young adult to develop a solid foundation for a new substance-free life.
Sustain Recovery Services has established a premier sober living environment in beautiful Orange County, southern California, that sets the standard for such facilities. The primary directive of all sober living is to establish a drug and alcohol free group home. Recovering adolescent addicts and alcoholics can continue to participate in 12-step recovery and other programs while they re-establish themselves in school, work and communities. Most facilities do nothing more than this, leaving residents to cook and clean for themselves and to enroll in and secure transportation to group programs. Sustain Recovery goes beyond the common call for support.
First, recognizing that healthy eating is a critical aspect of addiction recovery, Sustain Recovery offers residents nutritional guidance and planned meals. We staff our houses around the clock with qualified personnel and a three-to-one caregiver-to-resident ratio. We continue the structured schedules experienced in previous treatment programs. Therapy, group therapy, life skills training and life coaching are incorporated into the Sustain Recovery program.
Other coaching services include educational and vocational training, resume building, and time management. We provide transportation options to allow our residents to get to and from their schools or places of employment. Perhaps most importantly, we encourage our residents to have fun. Involvement in local YPAA (Young People’s AA) is part of our programming, supporting our residents in getting involved with other young people in recovery.
Every weekend, Sustain Recovery offers family programming including Al-Anon attendance and group family therapy. We believe that addiction and alcoholism are family diseases, therefore requiring family healing.
Sustain Recovery Services raises the bar on providing extended care services to young adults and adolescents in recovery from drug and alcohol addiction. Our homes are high end luxury models, gender-separated, and nestled in the hills of southern California.
