Why 90 Days in Extended Care is Beneficial to Long-Term Recovery
At Arbor Extended Care we recognize that alcoholism and addiction are chronic diseases. For this reason, we recommend at least a 90-day stay in any transitional living environment. The transition from a highly structured inpatient treatment center to a successful real life can be an arduous one. It is often a lengthy process for clients in early recovery to acclimate to a new environment, develop an understanding of what their challenges and goals are, and begin to implement a plan for sustained change and improvement.
Because of this typical timeline, 30 days in extended care can often prove to be insufficient. It is vital that clients have enough time to internalize the need for improved life skills, time management skills, and various aspects of life that encompass a holistic plan for recovery.
Additionally, we often do a great deal of damage to our bodies and minds during active alcoholism and/or addiction. The reality is that these organic issues take time to heal. The longer that clients can remain in an environment that is supportive of this transition, the greater their chance for long-term sobriety and overall success in all areas of their lives.
In considering the many aspects of life that suffer during active alcoholism and addiction, life skills are an important aspect that are often neglected. While this term can seem a bit broad, life skills can generally be defined as any psychological, social, or interpersonal skill that is important.
The fact that many of these skills must be relearned, or even taught from scratch, can be one of the more overwhelming aspects of recovery, and therefore has become one of the key focuses of Arbor Extended Care.
All house managers are certified as Peer Recovery Support Specialists, have undergone intensive training, and have successfully navigated this journey themselves. They are properly armed with the necessary tools to mentor residents on these important skills.
By meeting clients where they are at, setting measurable and attainable goals, and providing support along the way, we help clients learn to live again.
