If you have successfully completed treatment at another program, please call our admissions office to find out how you can attend our Aftercare group.
Any alumni who has successfully completed treatment at Turning Point of Tampa may participate in the Aftercare program indefinitely, at no charge.
Why Is Aftercare So Important in Addiction and Eating Disorder Treatment?
While addiction and eating disorder treatment can be transformational, what happens after you leave treatment is just as critical. Individuals who do not have proper support networks are more likely to relapse or struggle with their sobriety or disordered eating. Luckily, many treatment programs now include some aftercare components to their programs to foster these vital connections.
At Turning Point of Tampa, we go one step further, involving our alumni in group sessions moderated by our own staff. We welcome alumni to both in-person and virtual events, as well as providing tools to connect with peers in recovery. Another key differentiator of the Turning Point Aftercare program is that we allow verified graduates of other treatment programs to join our alumni support network, also.
What Does Aftercare Support Look Like?
You’ve done the hard work of addiction or eating disorder treatment and are ready to face everyday life with determination and courage. But sustaining your recovery for the long term is much easier when you’re surrounded by a strong support network. That’s why we incorporate our Aftercare program into the plan of care for all of our clients at Turning Point of Tampa.
Aftercare connects you to your peers in recovery, many of whom may have become your lifelong friends through your shared treatment experiences. At the same time, our program also maintains strong connections to the Turning Point of Tampa team, who remain here to guide you through tough moments, cravings, and triggers. Through in-person and virtual gatherings, our Aftercare program allows you to stay in close contact with your support network as you re-enter everyday life.
