T.E.A.M. – Technology Enhanced Aftercare & Monitoring
A functional aftercare program designed and offered by Sovereign Health of California.
The support and contribution rendered to individuals recovering from addiction towards
their commitment to sobriety. More than half the client population is prone towards
relapse even within the first year of successful completion of transitional living.
This shows the significance of post recovery Aftercare and Follow-up programs for
such candidates to participate and continue a life of long term sobriety.
After care programs involve assisting the recovering individual in returning to
normal life, dealing with stress, finding a healthy social group and resisting the
craving for the drug/ alcohol/ narcotic. Recovering individuals are encouraged to
take part in support groups or 12-step programs. Individual therapy may also be
continued throughout the aftercare process. If drug use was attributed to trauma
or mood disorder, counseling and/or medications may need to be continued for several
months or even years.
