The Importance Of Aftercare
Leaving treatment isn’t always easy, especially if you are making the transition from 24/7 monitoring and care to independent living. Adapting to life outside of treatment while learning to manage your condition can be challenging, but aftercare services exist to provide you with continuing care and support so you can overcome your difficulties.
Residential treatment allows you to dive deep into the underlying causes and conditions of your mental health condition. It also introduces you to healthy coping mechanisms and other skills you need to manage your remission. However, aftercare allows you to practice what you learned during treatment in real-life situations while still obtaining professional guidance and support.
Solutions that Work
Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP)
After you complete residential treatment, you will likely transition to a partial hospitalization program (PHP). PHP can be described as a step-down from residential treatment, yet more intensive than outpatient treatment. During this level of care, you will attend structured treatment and therapy during the day that is similar to residential treatment. The primary difference between residential and PHP is that you get to return home in the evening. For many people, PHP is the first step of their continuum of care.
Intensive Outpatient Programming (IOP)
Intensive outpatient programming, better known as IOP, is the next step in the continuum of care after PHP. These programs exist to treat on an outpatient basis. Rather than participating in therapy and counseling all day, you will only spend 10-12 hours a week in IOP.
