Aftercare programs are an essential tool for maintaining recovery from addiction. Relapse prevention is a harm reduction strategy that helps keep those in recovery on the right track. When someone in recovery feels that their willpower is not as strong as usual or that they are experiencing cravings and a temptation to abuse substances, aftercare programs are part of the safety net that is available to those who need a helping hand.
At TruHealing Gaithersburg, we consider anyone who spends time with us a forever client. This means that the door is always open if you are struggling. Our aftercare program in Maryland offers a range of benefits to help clients maintain their recovery. These benefits include access to support groups, ongoing therapy, sober living community housing, and connecting you with a 12-step or other anonymous program.

How Aftercare Programs Help with Recovery
Life is always going to have bumps in the road. Some bumps are a little harder to manage on your own than others. If you are in recovery and feel that you are struggling more than usual, an aftercare program can provide you with a range of resources that can keep you on the right track and help avoid relapse.
At TruHealing Gaithersburg, we offer a variety of aftercare programs and services, including:
- Support groups
- Transitional housing
- Group meeting connections
Previous clients who have flourished in TruHealing Gaithersburg’s programs sometimes return to participate in our Alumni Program. This provides an opportunity to give back to the TruHealing Gaithersburg community. If you are struggling in your recovery, we can connect you with an individual who we believe is a good match based on your life circumstances. This can help broaden your safety net and allow you to learn more coping mechanisms and life skills that will keep you on the path towards lasting recovery.
