What Happens After Detox?
It is important to recognize that detox is only the first step. Medication assisted detox cannot be an individual’s only plan. It is critical that detox is followed by a continuum of care that supports individuals to continue in recovery.
While in detox, we introduce our clients to the 12 steps, begin individual, group and family therapy, and teach holistic coping mechanisms such as meditation and yoga. Our case managers work hard to help each client craft a detailed plan for continuing their recovery after detox. For most individuals, following detox we encourage a stay at an inpatient residential facility, followed by an intensive outpatient program. For some individuals, it is appropriate to go directly into an outpatient program following detox. However, when it comes to recovery, the more treatment a person can, and is willing, to receive, the better.
Guardian Recovery Network has meaningful relationships with many treatment providers across the county. The Guardian Recovery Network also operates its own network of clinically sophisticated facilities in multiple states, including Colorado, Florida, Maine, New Hampshire and New Jersey. Whether a client continues their recovery journey at one of our facilities or at another provider’s, it is our mission to help smooth the transition from physical detox, into active recovery.
