Aftercare in case of addiction

Why aftercare? Recovery is a process, not an event.

Addiction is a way of coping with life. However problematic it is, it isn’t the root cause. Quitting is the first step. But it takes a lot more than that to stay clean. 

Our outpatient (group) aftercare focuses on:


The practice and application of the insights and tools learnt

This process of experiencing reality starts after admission. The world is unpredictable, and in daily life we encounter stress and triggers. This is why therapeutic follow-up is important. Reflecting on daily life, and getting an insight into what is happening, your emotions and behaviour, is best done together with a therapist. They support you in making decisions that are good for your recovery. Relapse prevention and emotion regulation, social skills and dealing with stress are important focal points in the aftercare programme.

Constant focus on the deeper psychological causes

As you continue to work with your sponsor, painful issues from the past or emotions may surface. This can be overwhelming. Therapeutic support and therapy are a valuable complement to this process.

Strengthening and maintaining what you learned during your recovery process
