The Insight Program believes in the value of aftercare substance abuse programs and the long-term positive improvement on the success of substance abusers who are successfully discharged from any form of intensive outpatient program (IOP) or residential treatment program for teens. Recovering from substance use disorders is hard work and it takes time.
One of the biggest opportunities in the treatment world is the lack of appropriate aftercare substance abuse resources. Unfortunately, this often leads to what many have deemed the “revolving door” effect. This is where a drug user enters treatment, sobers up over the course of a month or two, and then leaves the treatment centers hopeful – only to relapse within the first 30 days.
We firmly believe that part of our high success rate for young people and teenagers in drug and alcohol treatment is that we place a emphasis on our aftercare program and substance abuse support groups for teens and young adults.
