Unfortunately, relapse numbers are high for those who are addicted to drugs and alcohol.  Most people relapse, but aftercare options can help mitigate the chances of relapse. Aftercare includes sober living facilities and alumni programs that are situated to help people stay sober once they leave treatment. Sober living houses people with others who are in recovery with the goal of creating a community of support and accountability. Alumni programs help keep the client connected to the treatment center’s staff and peers. Both of these options go a long way in ensuring that they stay on the path of sobriety.
