Our after-care program is an integral part of each individuals treatment plan. It has been widely found and understood that without any support following a formal treatment program, individuals are at significantly higher risk of relapse.
With this in mind, we strive to make sure every individual who has accessed services with Mark Amy Treatment Centre continue to be and feel supported in the early stages of their recovery. The after-care program emphasizes support in the areas of relapse prevention and planning, crisis support, cultural support and activities, resource provision, hosting and assisting individuals to access a variety of peer support/mutual aid support groups, assisting in development of a support system and regular connection through phone and in-person means. The plan may not include all of the above, but is rather tailored to each individuals needs and devised with their input. The ultimate goal of after-care is to help program alumni use the tools they have learned while in treatment, to prevent relapse.
