How to Make a Discharge Plan When Your Child Leaves Addiction Treatment
by Connie Motley, M.Ed, LPC-S, Executive Clinical Director of Origins South Padre
While residential treatment provides a natural “safe zone” where people seeking sobriety can focus on battling the immediate crisis of addiction, those of us working as treatment providers know that the real work of recovery begins when residential or formal treatment ends. The combination of medical detox, followed by rigorous counseling and family work while in treatment, are only the first steps to a life of freedom from a substance use disorder. So, what should families expect when their loved one prepares to leave treatment and head back home?
