Aftercare and Staying Sober after Treatment
Aftercare services are an essential component in the continuum of care offered by Plum Creek Recovery Ranch. To support long term recovery, it is necessary to help a person navigate the transition from a highly structured inpatient residential setting to using the tools they learned in treatment to maintain sobriety in their everyday life.
managing the road ahead…
Addiction is a chronic illness and the road to recovery must be properly managed.
Research by the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA) states under-treating a substance use disorder (SUD) by providing lower than recommended levels of care or shorter lengths of treatment, can dramatically increase the risk of relapse.
positive outlooks & outcomes
Positive outcomes are highly correlated with adequate length of treatment. Generally, participation in a substance abuse treatment program for a minimum of 90 days is recommended with longer treatment options available as necessary for maintaining sobriety.
What does it mean to have trauma-informed care?
Trauma-informed care means recognizing people often have many different types of trauma in their lives. Trauma-informed care at Plum Creek Recovery Ranch is a structured treatment framework that understands, recognizes, and responds to the effects of trauma with an emphasis on physical, psychological, and emotional safety to help survivors rebuild a sense of empowerment.
At Plum Creek Recovery Ranch, we promote a culture of safety, empowerment, and healing.

When leaving treatment, we can connect you to psychiatric care provided by our network to assure you find the necessary follow-up care for your medication management.
