My Kid Just Completed Treatment. Now What?
Continuing Care

Parents often feel uncertain and ill-prepared when their son or daughter has completed addiction treatment. Many parents expect their teen or young adult to be “fixed” when he or she finishes a treatment program. Unfortunately, this is not a realistic expectation.

For many young people, a substance use disorder is a chronic condition that will require management into adulthood, and for some, throughout life. This is typical of chronic disorders. (For example, if treatment for asthma or diabetes were stopped, a relapse would likely occur.) So, with this in mind, how can you best support your child's recovery in the days and weeks after treatment?

To help parents, we created a guide called Continuing Care.
