Our greatest sphere of influence is not just the first weeks of residency or treatment, but in the weeks, months and years after a person has left our premises. We believe that our most important task is to provide a lifetime of care, a lifetime of change, a lifetime of potential.
We run a two year aftercare programme for all residents who have completed treatment. This aftercare programme is run on a nationwide basis to facilitate access to the service. One of the major challenges facing a person after their residential stay is relapse.
Many people struggle to make the adjustment to a new way of life and fall back on old habits of coping with life. If a person does not actively take care of their sobriety, in the normal ups and downs of life, he/she can easily relapse into using drugs or alcohol.
Aftercare provides a supportive environment, each week, and a group of people where help is available on the road of recovery. Over the course of 2 years you are given the opportunity to develop the skills and real confidence to deal with life challenges. All aftercare groups are facilitated by trained facilitators. Peer support and sharing is an integral part of the recovery process.
Evidence has proven that aftercare is an integral part of the road to recovery.
Located in Waterford, we also have a residential service which offers further assistance to those who need extra support in early recovery. They live in a supportive environment with on-going help to grow into their new found life-styles.
