If you have recently completed IOP and are looking to continue working on your recovery plans, aftercare
treatment is the right choice. Your recovery is an ongoing process that does not stop after you
successfully detox or stop using drugs or alcohol. In fact, relapse rates for substance use disorders
can be as high as 60%. Therefore, we recommend long-term intervention to facilitate stability, develop
accountability, and treat any surrounding issue related to your substance use disorder. At WMH, the
program is designed to last between three and 18 months, depending on the time you spend in SAIOP.
Participants are required to attend a minimum of two sessions per week and offered the option to attend
support groups such as AA, NA, or SMART Recovery.
Outpatient treatment is effective and is also a great resource for individuals with a busy schedule who
cannot commit to intensive treatment, who have not attempted recovery yet, or who are looking for added
structure and support during their recovery. Aftercare treatment is accessible, cost effective, and
allows you to handle both mental health and substance abuse problems simultaneously.
