Our wellness programs teach you continuous self-care and empower own responsibility

Recovery Wellness Aftercare

What happens after you have finished your detox at a different approved facility or have undergone our residential treatment? Returning to the outside world, where triggers and temptations are more difficult to control, can be intimidating for many patients. The Recovery Wellness enters the picture here. The continuum of care approach ensures that patients are never on their own at any point in the process by using a variety of learning environments and coaching to assist them comprehend the cause of their issue and encourage sustainable growth. 

Minimum of 6 individual coaching sessions deepen the learnings and experience gained from residential treatment. Coaching sessions focus on creating the Recovery Capital, which consists of emotional, social, physical, spiritual, and mental resources. Recovery Capital is crucial in developing a lifestyle that is sustainable and meaningful – your needs, goals, values, and aspirations are leading the process.

With the Recovery Coaching you will find

  • the support in creating a recovery plan that works for you.
  • new tools, techniques, practices and coping mechanisms
  • assistance in developing new behaviour that supports growth in all areas of your life
  • help in finding ways to have fun and be well
  • help in creating a life of purpose and fulfilment

Our online drug and alcohol addiction recovery groups provide individuals with a safe space to receive mutual support and encouragement. Groups are lead by the certified coaches and recovery wellness practitioners. Depending on the number and size of the groups, meetings take place 3 – 5 times a week.

Anyone in recovery needs a relapse prevention strategy. Having a plan aids in identifying your individual tendencies that can signal relapse in the future. It also provides guidance on how to halt them and get back on track.

Relapse usually isn’t a spur-of-the-moment event. Typically it is a three-part process, including:

  1. Emotional relapse
  2. Mental relapse
  3. Physical relapse

With a relapse prevention plan, it is possible to recognize and respond to specific emotions and events, with that avoiding a physical relapse (which is the stage when someone returns to drug or alcohol use).

This part of the aftercare is provided in the format of an online psychoeducation class, where learning is experiential and it corelates with the coaching sessions.

All of the clients, students and family members that engaged with our programs are offered to become and stay part of the community on the platform based environment where peer support takes place. Community for peer support is one of the most powerful assets for recovery and wellness.

Key elements of Peer Support include that it is built on shared personal experience and empathy, it focuses on an individual’s strengths not weaknesses, and works towards the individual’s wellbeing and recovery. It is crucial element in our approach as Vista Health’s philosophy lies in the spirit of Ubuntu “I am what I am because of who we all are.”

Essential part of the aftercare is the continuous treatment with the specialists. Our healthcare psychologist will make sure that the client has consistent follow up therapy based on the work and progress done during the inpatient treatment

Family Program

Family program runs as part of the aftercare, but often it is also delivered separately when that benefits the system better.  Family members are an integral part of the systemic approach to healing from the impacts of the addiction. There is a recovery journey that family members need to get on and we help in making that happen. Recovery coaches support families individually and in group meetings family members get the support, answers, and insights needed to steer down their own path of recovery.
