Many substance use disorder treatment programs only offer 30 to 60-day programs before discharging their clients. While this may be satisfactory in milder cases, it’s often not enough. A month or two allows clients to begin building the foundation for long-term recovery. However, they may not yet have a firm grasp on the new habits and behaviors necessary to avoid relapse. After all, the goal for recovery is life-long abstinence. For this reason, Red Rock Recovery Center offers an extended care program.
Extended care allows clients more time to feel secure in their new lifestyle before returning to living independently. They build autonomy slowly over time to build their confidence.
