At one time the city of Peru was the winter headquarters for a number of well known circuses, including the Wallace Circus and Ringling Brothers, Barnum and Bailey. Having a deep seated appreciation for circuses, each year, the Peru Amateur Circus performs for the city’s residents. The city isn’t all about fun and games though. They also have top notch drug rehabilitation programs that are well reputed and effective in their treatment of drug and alcohol addicts.
Follow-Up Care Options in Peru
The rehab process typically includes some form of detox, actual treatment and then appropriate follow-up care. If any of these three things is missing, an addict may find it hard to stay clean and on course. In this article, we will discuss the importance of follow-up care and how, when it is non-existence, an individual is in danger of relapsing.
Follow-up care is a way for an individual who has already gone through rehab to receive much needed continued support. The real world is much different from a rehabilitation facility where there are employees on guard to keep drugs and alcohol out and you safe and sober. In the real world, there aren’t many people catering to your every need and completely focused on making sure that you are comfortable and continue to stay sober. Because of this, it is important that you build your own network that will provide you with positive reinforcement and support. This could mean the difference between you staying clean or relapsing.
Building Your Post-Rehab Support Network
Narcotics or Alcohol Anonymous can be great ways for individuals to receive continued support and also accountability. Support groups, counseling and even outpatient treatment can be helpful as well. If you need more ideas or help locating these types of programs in the Peru area, contact us today.
