Aftercare: Recovery Advocate Program
Long-term recovery requires a strong support system. Spending 30, 60, 90 days or more in an excellent inpatient treatment center is a good foundation for recovery. What happens beyond treatment? Why stop now? Why cheat yourself? It takes a stronger person to ask for help. In order to keep that solid foundation, you or your loved one will need to agree to an accountability system that builds upon what you learned in treatment
Receive the same support and treatment as professionals. Licensed professionals such as doctors, pharmacists, and pilots who have participated in treatment are provided with aftercare programs by the state or federal government for 3 to 5 years following their treatment to ensure they keep up the standard of living a sober life. Convicted drug offenders are also required to attend probation or parole approved aftercare programs that provide drug testing, outpatient relapse prevention services and counseling. Now these services are available to you
R.A.P. — a program that works. The Recovery Advocate Program is now available to everyone seeking long term recovery. Intervention911 has developed an advocacy program that is proven to be effective. R.A.P. is a minimum of one year and can continue up to 5 years based on need. R.A.P. offers many services that can be tailored for each individual for lasting recovery results.
Enlist in the R.A.P. and your Advocate will:
- Be directly involved in the continuing care plan from the treatment provider
- Create an agreement between the individual, the family and the treatment provider that supports the recovery process.
- Monitor the individual and motivate them to change addict behavior by providing tools to support their sobriety.
- Have daily contact with the individual at the start of the program and continue weekly contact throughout the programs entirety.
- Coordinate drug and alcohol testing as required.
- Support attending 12-step meetings.
- Be in communication with the family and support group. This includes talking to the individual’s spouse, family members and clinical support team.
- Provide monthly progress reports to the family. If needed, we will also provide the reports to the individual’s employer or the court in regards to any legal obligations such as parole, probation or social services.
We believe that long-term recovery is possible. We know what works. We can mend the gap and create a bridge between the individual and the family. Our Advocate can successfully support the individual in their recovery and enliven the future.
