Though professional treatment is an important part of addiction recovery, it’s only the first step. What follows is a lifelong journey of sobriety that takes determination, practice and ongoing support to maintain. It’s difficult for nearly everyone, but Orlando Recovery Center makes it easier through the use of alumni resources.
All of our addiction treatment programs include individualized aftercare plans that help set clients up for success after completing rehab. Without an effective plan in place, struggles that arise during recovery can quickly become overwhelming, which increases the likelihood of relapse. Here is an overview of what we offer in our aftercare plans and related alumni services.
Rehab treatment involves modifying damaging behaviors, kickstarting sobriety, building support and understanding the underlying reasons for an addiction. Aftercare involves reinforcing and building upon these foundations through:
For those looking for sober living options within the Central Florida area, we always recommend Next Step Village. As an official part of our organization, this recovery-oriented community allows clients to continue the healing process in our supportive and structured home environments. However, if a client would rather live elsewhere, our alumni coordinators can always refer the client to other trustworthy sober living communities that may better fit their needs.
Clients in our rehab programs will gain access to alumni resources immediately after completing their rehab stay. Resources like online portals, support apps, check-ins and career advising can help alumni build and maintain a stable foundation that promotes long-term recovery.
By registering with our patient portal, clients can access a variety of helpful recovery tools and resources. The portal hosts services that promote overall help and wellness, such as guided yoga lessons, online journaling pages, addiction and recovery information, educational videos, support tools and much more.
Additionally, our teletherapy app allows clients to continue the healing process from the comfort of their own homes. All that is needed is a laptop, smartphone or tablet in order to connect with a behavioral health expert and receive life-changing therapy, learn new ways of thinking or develop mental health strategies.
Orlando Recovery Center also offers several recovery resources that are available to anyone. These include helpful video topics, webinars and learning opportunities for addiction-related content.
Our YouTube channel hosts a wide variety of valuable video topics, ranging from client testimonials to in-depth explanations of how addiction affects the mind and body. Additionally, the video content found on our website can help people with addiction — as well as their friends, family and loved ones — better understand the relationship between mental health, substance use and recovery.
We provide an archive of addiction and mental health webinars presented by mental health professionals, clinicians, social workers and many other types of addiction experts. Each online seminar covers topics related to addiction, such as types of treatment, the impact of mental health conditions and the power of self-care.
Our website offers a wealth of information that can help you and those you know learn more about addiction, mental health and recovery. Our blog is often updated with new articles covering a wide range of topics, such as holiday sobriety guides, avoiding triggers during the pandemic, self-care tips, and much more. We also share news about the latest breakthroughs and updates regarding substances, laws and new treatment approaches.
