Participation in a drug treatment program is an excellent start on the journey toward sobriety – but it is just the first step. Addiction is a chronic disease, similar to diabetes and heart disease, and success in recovery is an ongoing process. While treatment at The Meadow Lodge is designed to help teens build a strong foundation for recovery, aftercare is essential for teens to embrace a drug-free lifestyle.
Aftercare planning begins the day an adolescent begins treatment with us. Every adolescent leaves The Meadow Lodge with a unique aftercare plan in place, which may include a structured day or evening outpatient program, a sober living environment, or a specific plan for participating in aftercare groups and 12-Step meetings in the community.
