Life After Treatment, What Is Next?

Updated: Jun 26, 2020

During life after treatment, people will either enter a Recovery Home or return back to their old lives. Unfortunately, this sometimes exposes them to old habits and influences, which can be difficult to resist and increase susceptibility to relapse.



TCI Village is very well aware of the pitfalls of one's journey back to sobriety hence it emphasizes the extreme value of connection to the facility and its support staff providing aftercare and mentoring for advice and recovery support.



Relapse prevention is undoubtedly the foremost structure focus any aftercare effort seeks to attain post-care success. TCI Village Recovery Specialist advocates the following activities to help TCI graduates obtain better balance in dealing with issues upon release from treatment.



JOIN SUPPORT GROUPS

Whether it’s Alcoholics or Narcotics Anonymous or any other group, it is important to surround yourself with people who understand your experience and who are available in times of doubt or crisis.



Become engaged with the Recovery Community

Addiction is isolation; recovery is community. Getting involved with the Recovery Community connects people in recovery with others who are dealing with life after treatment. TCI Village events and outreach programs are opportunities for all alumni as well as anyone in recovery to make friends and celebrate their success.



Establish Routines

Make a schedule and stick to it, for your nutrition, your work, and your personal time. This will ease the transition back into life outside of treatment. TCI program trains all clients to plan and write a daily activity structure, behaviorally, they are trained to embrace the day to day activity plan. Simply, one must never deviate from approved to do's.



Set boundaries and limits

It is important to let people in your life know that you are making this change and that you are fully committed to it.



Volunteer

Pay it forward by dedicating your time to organizations you care about. You can also attend TCI events get-togethers . Feeling good about yourself and your contributions to your community will make it easier to say no to negative influences and yes to the life you want to live.




Stay in touch

TCI Village connection continues after graduates leave the village as alumni. TCI Founder and Director Dionisio Tan Jr. is a deep advocate of brotherhood gatherings, get-togethers, and group activities as a way of celebrating sobriety and ensuring that graduates are on the right path.



Listening to people share their stories of recovery can empower others to ask for help and change their lives. It reminds others they are not alone. Sharing your story is also a way to reflect on your progress and the struggles you’ve overcome.



TCI Village is big on and about the post-care life of all its alumni, even when treatment ends, TCI knows recovery is for life.
