Drug and Alcohol Treatment Aftercare Programs within Nova Scotia
Aftercare programs are commonly provided when someone completes an inpatient or an outpatient drug and alcohol treatment center. The aftercare process is there to help recovering addict's transition back into society again, and continue to work on their sobriety. This can include gaining new employment, becoming connected with other sober individuals and people who continually work at sobriety and living a sober life. An aftercare program can also include sober living communities, which are communities of people who live together and are in recovery from addictions. Transitional homes and halfway houses are there for offenders who were caught up in the criminal-justice system because of their addiction, and require a place to be after treatment. Regardless of the aftercare treatment available, recovering addicts should make every effort to continue to work on his or her sobriety through the support of others or organizations whom support sobriety.
