Sprout Health Texas believes that the process of recovery does not stop once our treatment program ends.
Recovering and maintaining sobriety is a constant journey that teaches our patients a lot about their own will power, strength and endurance. We will remain committed as long as our patients do and reaffirm that statement with our continuing care programs.
The Effectiveness of Continuing Care
Follow-up is one of the most important steps in your treatment program. In order to sustain a lasting recovery, it is necessary to continue receiving professional help. Sprout Health Texas is committed to your recovery; therefore, we provide continuing care.
While at the facility, you will learn necessary skills to help sustain your sobriety, such as relaxation techniques and physical exercises aimed at keeping you healthy and alert as well as techniques that help you deal with drug cravings and their triggers. Our continuing care, which includes support meetings, individual counseling and the rebuilding of damaged relationships, begins once your treatment is over
Once you return to normal life, you will no longer be surrounded by clinicians or people experiencing the same thing as you; therefore, returning to your past social circle and the risk relapse are increased. Attending support groups, such as Narcotics Anonymous or Alcoholics Anonymous, provides you with a similar environment that you experienced at our treatment facility.
Coping With Addiction Through Cognitive Behavioral Therapy
One of our most effective therapies, the Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, teaches our patients how to get rid of negative thinking patterns. It is specifically designed for our patients to develop new thoughts about life, break old habits and abdicate unwanted behavior patterns. We also teach our patients about their addiction, what caused it, what the triggers are and how to combat their cravings.
Rebuilding Broken Relationships
Another therapy we offer, which we highly recommend, is family therapy. We cannot stress enough the importance of family participation in your treatment process. Addiction does not only affect the addicts but their family, friends and loved ones as well. By involving your family, we can help repair damaged relationships. We can also educate them on the signs of addiction and how to support a loved one through a treatment program. They can become your support system once you leave our facility. It is beyond important to have support outside of our facility because returning home after days or months in treatment is like being born again. You are a completely different person and need people who love and support you around to help ease the anxiety of starting over.
We Help You Learn To Help Yourself
After you complete your treatment, we highly recommend attending support groups, such as Narcotics Anonymous and Alcoholics Anonymous. These are known as chapters and meetings and they are highly effective in creating a large network of support for recovering patients. They lend support, guidance and advice in a positive and safe environment.
Meetings and chapters were established to help recovering patients transition into everyday life. Everyone who attends meetings is either in recovery themselves or an Alumni of a facility; either way, they understand what you are going through and will offer the best tips and tricks on how to maintain sobriety.
Sprout Health Texas believes that it is important to offer aftercare and continuing care programs that help structure a community of prosperous alumni. Who better to receive guidance from than someone who completely understands your struggles? Our Alumni can offer a tremendous amount of support. They have successfully completed treatment programs, have learned the skills necessary to aid in recovery and understand how to encourage others facing similar obstacles.
We understand that the recovery process is hard enough which is why we highly recommend reaching out to support groups for guidance after you leave our treatment facility. As mentioned before, the recovery process does not end when our treatment program does; it is a long lasting process. When you feel lonely, afraid or like giving up, please turn to the many support groups available that will offer support and guidance in a friendly, positive and safe environment.
