AFTERCARE: RECOVERY ADVOCATE PROGRAM

What the Recovery Advocate Program Does for You 

We are here to support people leaving treatment. In our experience, we see too many patients relapse after leaving treatment. Individuals go home after treatment with many new tools for sobriety and find them difficult to implement and stay accountable in daily life. 

The Recovery Advocate Program provides individuals and families a way to stay accountable. An advocate (sometimes called a case manager) is assigned to each individual to check in with everything going on in that person’s sobriety. Are they attending twelve step meetings? Are they getting proper diet and nutrition? Are they having trouble reintegrating with loved ones or friends? The recovery advocate is a sound and sober voice to talk to in early recovery. Randomized breathalyzers and drug tests are ordered, keeping individuals accountable and family members from worrying or “snoopervising.”

Our Goal 

Intervention911 has been helping individuals with aftercare for 15 years. Early on, this was only available to families that could afford to pay out of pocket, but it is now recognized and covered by many insurance plans. While the recovery advocate program is here to help an individual, we are also here for families and support networks.  We look help each person see their role and how to put a healthy family back together.

About the Accreditation 

We at Intervention911 have earned The Joint Commission’s Gold Seal of Approval for Behavioral Health Care Accreditation. This is a symbol of quality that reflects our commitment to providing safe, effective care. We underwent a rigorous review, and are in compliance with behavioral health care standards related to several areas, including care, treatment, and services; environment of care; leadership; and screening procedures for the early detection of imminent harm. Staff from across intervention911 continue to work together to develop and implement approaches and strategies that have the potential to improve care for those in our community.” 

Established in 1969, The Joint Commission’s Behavioral Health Care Accreditation Program currently accredits more than 2,250 organizations for a three-year period. Accredited organizations provide treatment and services within a variety of settings across the care continuum for individuals who have mental health, addiction, eating disorder, intellectual/developmental disability, and/or child-welfare related needs.
