What Happens When You Leave Lakeview Health?
From the moment you enter any of the addiction treatment programs at Lakeview Health, our Aftercare Services team begins planning your successful re-entry into the world. Our mission is to help you live a sober life. Our commitment to you continues long after your time on-campus. We’re with you for the long haul. While you’re here, we create an individualized recovery plan that changes over time as you change. The same is true for your re-entry plan. It’s custom-designed to meet your needs and work for your life. When those needs change—as they will, because no one stands still—your plan needs to change. We promise to be here for you when that time comes. One month, six months, one year, five years—when you pick up the phone and call us, we’ll answer and mobilize all available resources to help you meet whatever challenge is in front of you.
We will follow through on this commitment to you, and we encourage you to verify this for yourself: learn more about our Alumni Recovery Support Resources or come to one of our frequent community events and meet the very real humans at the core of Lakeview Health.
The Importance of Sustained Support
Our culture is obsessed with quick fixes. We have computers in our pockets that put the world at our fingertips, so it’s no surprise everyone is looking for the fastest way to lose weight, the one secret short-cut to getting in shape, or the quickest and easiest way to learn a new skill. Time for a reality check: there is no shortcut to sobriety and no fast track to sobriety. One thing you’ll learn at Lakeview is that recovery is a lifelong process. There’s a saying you’ll hear from the old-timers around support meetings:
“Rehab is short. Recovery is long.”
The reason you hear it is because it’s true. During your stay here, you’ll learn tools and strategies to get sober, but the real test happens when you take those tools out into the world. Starting at least three weeks prior to your discharge date, you’ll begin a constructive dialogue with your Aftercare Coordinator and create your post-treatment sobriety plan.
Meet Our Aftercare Coordinators
Our aftercare coordinators are a key component in our Aftercare Program. They are here to help facilitate your transition into a life of recovery and that you are prepared to use the tools and techniques you’ve learned while in treatment.
