Aftercare Is Essential to Success

One thing that causes people to relapse after completing a recovery program is noncompliance with aftercare or follow-up care. Some people believe that drug addiction can be treated similarly to a traumatic injury such as a broken arm - the arm is set and it heals, the cast is removed, physical therapy is scheduled and life eventually returns to normal.

In most cases, drug addiction cannot be adequately managed this way. Someone struggling with an addiction can appear to heal, only to relapse months or years later because of the chronic nature of the problem. Because of this, following aftercare recommendations is absolutely necessary.

Aftercare is any form of continuous treatment that occurs after initial treatment is completed. It's very important for relapse prevention, as many addicts are at a risk for relapse once being released from a treatment center.
