How Can I Stay Sober After Rehab? Extended Care Programs for Heroin Addicts
If you suffer from heroin addiction, you may have tried to get clean and sober more than once. You’ve been to the Narcotics Anonymous meetings, and they worked for a while—until you started shooting junk again. Maybe you’ve even been to rehab. Lots of heroin addicts go to rehab more than once. But addictions have a lot to do with context. It’s easy to feel resolved to stay off heroin when you’ve been at the rehab center for ten days—but it’s a lot harder to hold onto that feeling when you’re back home, sitting on the same couch where you used to shoot up. Talking to your friends who still use heroin. Seeing your heroin dealer on the street. When you go right back into your old life, it’s so difficult not to slip back into your heroin addiction.
So how do you beat the odds and stay off heroin? The best way is to get into a rehab program that helps you break free of your old life and gives you the space to build a new life that doesn’t revolve around heroin. Archstone Recovery Center of the Palm Beaches in Lantana, Florida, offers such a program with its extended care program. Archstone Recovery is a fully accredited, top-rated drug and alcohol rehabilitation facility. Here’s how it works: First, contact us. You’ll speak with an admissions specialist who can answer your questions, help you arrange travel from other parts of Florida, New York (NY), New Jersey (NJ), Washington, DC, Philadelphia (PA), Baltimore (MD), New England, and all over the United States, and deal with your insurance company for you. Then you’ll start rehab.
Initially you’ll attend a residential program at Archstone Recovery’s main facility. You’ll receive medical treatment, attend individual and group therapy, work the twelve steps of heroin recovery, and receive a treatment program designed especially for your individual needs. You will get clean from heroin. Once you’re off heroin, though, that’s where the difference is—instead of going home, back to your old life, you enter Archstone Recovery’s extended care program. You’ll live in state-of-the-art housing with other recent Archstone Recovery graduates, and support one another in staying sober as you attend work or school, attend group meetings and therapy, and learn how to live without heroin.
