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 treatment concludes. Individuals go home with many new tools for sobriety and find them difficult to implement, which makes it challenging to 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.”
