Once you enter one of our primary mental health treatment centers, we consider you part of The Ranch family for life. In addition to aftercare planning, we offer re-intervention services as well as regular alumni groups, meetings and gatherings. From day one, we help you develop recovery skills relevant to everyday life and the triggers you\u2019ll face. We also work with you to establish a solid aftercare plan so you can succeed in recovery after inpatient mental health, co-occurring disorders or substance abuse treatment programs. Aftercare planning varies by location, but may include: Scheduling Appointments Your primary therapist works with you to make sure you have appropriate appointments scheduled when you return to everyday life. Depending on your diagnosis, this may include sessions with therapists, dietitians, physicians and psychiatrists. Step-Down Resources If you need additional help easing back into everyday life, we can connect you with sober-living residences as well as outpatient substance abuse treatment programs, eating disorder treatment programs, sex addiction treatment programs, PTSD treatment programs, and other behavioral health outpatient treatment options. Alumni Network Support from other people sharing similar struggles and successes is an important part of recovery. The Ranch\u2019s robust alumni network regularly gathers and connects. Learn more about our alumni programs. Self-Help Groups During inpatient rehab, you\u2019re introduced to 12-step support groups as well as alternatives to the 12 Steps. We help you locate similar resources in your communities so that you can continue drawing support and accountability in recovery from these resources.
