Aftercare in Addiction Treatment
We don’t just want you to meet your potential; we want you to form a relationship with it. The time post-IOP is referred to as “Aftercare,” which, for many, leads to new beginnings. Long-term sobriety is attainable, but it doesn’t happen the minute you quit using. It takes the creation and development of a support system. At Parkdale, we are dedicated to helping everyone acquire support—the professional in recovery, the family, the employer, and anyone willing to engage.
At Parkdale, the concept of “aftercare” is not merely a term, but a pathway to a rejuvenated life, promising new beginnings and long-term sobriety. Aftercare programs are an integral part of the recovery process, providing ongoing support and guidance that extends beyond the confines of an intensive outpatient program (IOP).
There are many benefits to aftercare programs. These programs provide a structured environment that fosters a sense of accountability and belonging, crucial for individuals navigating the road to recovery. Aftercare programs act as a safety net, offering support and resources to prevent relapses and facilitate sustainable recovery. They provide individuals with tools and coping mechanisms to deal with triggers in the outside world, thereby bolstering resilience and self-confidence.
Our aftercare program occurs 100% virtually and can vary in length based on the needs of the individual.

What Does Parkdale's Aftercare Program Look Like?
At Parkdale, we understand the importance of aftercare and are committed to helping all individuals access quality care. Our aftercare program is tailored to meet each individual’s needs, emphasizing community-based support and guidance. We strive to ensure our clients can access the resources and support they need through our partnerships with local resources such as 12-step programs, sober living houses, outpatient counseling services, etc.
Our aftercare programs provide a solid foundation for individuals in recovery as they transition back into their communities and gain independence. By emphasizing relapse prevention strategies, self-directed care, and creating personal empowerment plans, we strive to help our clients develop the skills and resources they need to maintain long-term sobriety.
We are also dedicated to providing quality care for the family members of individuals in recovery. Through our family programs, we provide education on addiction and its effects on families and guidance on effective communication and building healthy relationships.
Aftercare programs are suitable for individuals who have completed detoxification and an initial treatment program, such as IOP. They are open to those who are committed to their recovery journey and ready to take responsibility for their sobriety. It is crucial to remember that the journey to recovery is deeply personal, and there is no ‘one-size-fits-all’ approach.

What to Expect at Parkdale Center
How to Build a Healthy Support System
Experience the power of group counseling facilitated by highly qualified addiction specialists. Join a supportive community where you can share your journey, gain insights, and receive personalized guidance toward lasting recovery. Together, we can overcome addiction and build a healthier, happier future.
This provides a safe and confidential space for individuals to explore their thoughts, emotions, and experiences. With the support of a trained counselor, individuals can gain insights, develop coping strategies, and work towards personal growth and well-being. Whether facing challenges, seeking clarity, or simply looking to enhance your self-awareness, individual counseling can be a valuable resource on your journey toward a happier and more fulfilling life.
Education on wellness recovery and resiliency is crucial in promoting mental and physical well-being. By providing individuals with the knowledge and tools to navigate challenges, cultivate healthy coping mechanisms, and build personal resilience, this type of education empowers individuals to lead fulfilling and balanced lives. It encompasses many topics, including stress management, self-care practices, mindfulness, and emotional and psychological well-being strategies. Through educational initiatives focused on wellness recovery and resiliency, we can enhance individuals' and communities' overall health and happiness.
Family counseling offers a safe and supportive environment where families can come together to address and resolve their challenges. It provides a space for open communication, understanding, and growth, allowing family members to strengthen their relationships, improve their dynamics, and work towards a happier and healthier family unit. Whether it's dealing with conflicts, improving communication, or navigating major life transitions, family counseling can provide invaluable guidance and support to help families thrive.
Developing and nurturing long-term sponsor engagement is crucial for building strong and sustainable partnerships. Organizations can establish mutually beneficial relationships that extend beyond short-term collaborations by cultivating meaningful connections, fostering open communication channels, and delivering consistent value. This approach fosters trust, enhances brand reputation, and creates a solid foundation for continued success in sponsorship initiatives.
Organize group meetings to establish a robust and reliable community support system that fosters connection, collaboration, and collective growth. By bringing together like-minded individuals who share common goals and values, these meetings provide a platform for networking, knowledge sharing, and mutual support.
Having a sponsor, or a person who has been in recovery longer than yourself, as additional support can also be immensely beneficial to overall wellbeing and recovery outcomes.
We strive to provide continued support for families, employers, and colleagues, tailoring our assistance to meet their individual needs and desires. Whether it's offering guidance, resources, or a listening ear, we are dedicated to fostering a supportive environment that promotes well-being and success.
