Support at Every Step of Recovery
Recovery does not end once you complete a treatment program. Recovery is a lifelong process that requires constant work. An essential piece of the recovery process is after care, which provides support following the completion of a treatment program.
At Impact Recovery Center, we offer quality after care programs that provide continued support through your recovery. These programs ensure that you remain in the recovery mindset even when you are not in treatment, and continue to interact with others who are in recovery. Please contact us to learn more about our after care programs and pathways to recovery.
What is After Care?
After care is the period of recovery that follows treatment. Recovery is a lifelong process, and support is required at every step. In the scope of rehab, the term “after care” generally refers to the programs that a person participates in during the time immediately following their completion of an addiction treatment program. The purpose of after care is to ensure that a person continues their dedication to recovery and avoids relapse in the weeks and months after treatment.
Our After Care Programs
Our after care programs involve people who are at every stage of the recovery process.
We have alumni meetings, guest speaker events, and Saturday cookouts all aimed at bringing together people in our recovery community. These events are a chance for participants to not only connect with others in recovery and remain in a program, but also to have fun in sobriety!
We hold biweekly “sponsor nights” that give our clients an opportunity to connect with other people in recovery and participate as sponsors.
People who have participated in our addiction treatment programs and live in the Birmingham area and throughout Birmingham can attend our sponsor nights.Service is an essential component of the 12 steps of recovery. By serving as a sponsor, you can share your experiences in recovery with another person, and enrich your own experience and theirs! Being somebody else’s sponsor is one of the best ways to “pay it forward” and foster accountability in recovery
How Our Aftercare is Different
First of all, our aftercare is free. Our alumni coordinator stays actively engaged with our clients once they finish the program. Our alumni can come back to Impact as much as they want. Our aftercare consists of onsite weekly meetings, sponsor nights, cookouts, sports, and monthly alumni meetings with a 12 step speaker. We find that our men that stay in the Birmingham area crave the culture at Impact and want to come back and participate and stay plugged in.
