Your recovery does not end when your treatment programme does. Our mission is to help you overcome your illness and provide you with the tools to avoid a return to old destructive behaviours. We do not expect you to leave our clinic and fend for yourself.
We provide up to twelve months of aftercare support when you complete a rehab programme with us. The early days of recovery can be a challenging time, so know that you will not be alone.
You can continue to meet with your counsellor or call for phone support should you need to. We will also help you connect with a local fellowship support group, which will act as an additional support base that you will likely find to be an essential part of your ongoing recovery plan.
You are automatically enrolled into a free 52 session aftercare programme at the clinic you attended or any one of our nationwide rehabs (if closer or more convenient). Here you will engage in group therapy sessions listening to others and sharing your own post-rehab experiences such as new friends, local meetings you go to, hopes, ambitions, achievements, progress along the way along with any concerns, fears, resentments that are arising that any and every recovering addict experience in early recovery.
During your weekly sessions, you will have access to your/a therapist who will directly work with you on any number of concerns or fears you have. Here you can speak about specific issues you may not want to share in the group format and also highlight areas that were addressed in during your rehab stay that need more work to improve.
We understand that leaving rehab and having to face the reality of day-to-day life can be an extremely daunting thought. While you may be determined to continue living a clean and sober life, external triggers and temptations exist and dealing with these alone can leave you feeling isolated. To support you during this vital time, we have created a two-tier approach to long-term sobriety.
we provide one year’s worth of free aftercare support sessions every week in the rehab you attended (or nearest clinic). Here you will engage with a group based therapeutic approach, with loved ones in attendance (if you so wish) but with the opportunity to speak with a counsellor one-to-one.
we have built the UK’s first recovery network for all those who have attended a UKAT treatment facility. This lifelong recovery network is called Alumni– a gateway to lifelong sober companionship. Events include Christmas parties, dinners, adventure days out and, of course, summer BBQs.
This is the future of permanent recovery, and we are proud to be the first rehab family in the UK to offer it. Many people fear that putting down alcohol/drugs means losing their social life. At UKAT we say it’s only just begun! Please call to hear more about rehab, recovery and lifelong happiness.
If you have any questions regarding our rehab clinics and aftercare programmes, treatment needs, locations and cost – we can answer them!
