Sustaining the change and maintaining our recovery

To maintain a lasting and meaningful recovery it is essential that clients attend an aftercare programme. Once clients return to their home environment it can be very challenging to sustain the changes that have been made in treatment. Regular contact with treatment staff or self-help groups can help facilitate this transition. Clients attend counselling sessions with their focal counsellors once a week for six weeks after leaving SHARP and are strongly encouraged to become active members of the NA, AA and/or CA Fellowships.
