Personal Recovery Resources

There are a number of community resources available to those who struggle with drug and alcohol addiction. Our drug and alcohol treatment center in Philadelphia works with each patient, prior to discharge, to develop a personalized after-care plan that addresses his or her individualized needs. Having a strong after-care plan can help ease the anxiety of transitioning back into day-to-day life upon completion of a drug and alcohol treatment program. After-care enables patients to achieve long-term sobriety. We understand the struggles that occur in the early stages of recovery and we are here to help guide you every step of the way. While after-care plans typically include an Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) or sober living arrangement, it is important to be aware of other addiction recovery resources available in the greater Philadelphia area. Our drug and alcohol treatment center in Philadelphia provides you with personal recovery resources to ensure long-term success.
