Aftercare is a critical and long-term stage in a successful recovery. The commitment to aftercare will help to determine and predict your ongoing success. Growing in your new healthy beliefs and self-identity is a process that requires active practice. Relationship, lifestyle and daily habits will all be impacted by your on going participation. The 30-90 day period immediately following your exit from treatment is the most vulnerable time for an addict and will require active participation in daily meetings.
