Extended Care & Sober Living Program for Addiction Recovery in Henryville, PA

Relapse Prevention

While an individual is still in our residential or outpatient treatment program, he or she will receive extensive relapse prevention education. Pocono Mountain Recovery Center offers several workshops to provide patients with the tools that will support a smooth transition out of treatment, help them to identify and avoid the triggers that can lead to relapse, and empower them to respond to relapse in a healthy and productive manner without falling back into the destructive behavior patterns of ongoing substance abuse.

Discharge Planning

Addiction rehab discharge planning at Pocono Mountain Recovery Center

The day an individual begins treatment at Pocono Mountain Recovery Center, members of his or her treatment team begin to develop a personalized aftercare plan. This plan will document the individual’s progress while in our care, identify any issues of concern, and clearly define the specific steps that will guide him or her along the path of lasting recovery. Among the elements that may be included in a patient’s discharge plan are professional referrals, community-based resources, sober residences, outpatient programs, counseling opportunities, and 12-step support group meetings in the area.

Continued Counseling & Support

Continued addiction counseling & support for those in recovery after receiving treatment

When a patient leaves our campus after completing his or her time in treatment that does not mean that his or her relationship with Pocono Mountain Recovery Center has ended. The men and women who heal with us develop close ties with our counseling staff, and we are proud to be able to continue to support them through the post-treatment phases of their recovery. For example, program alumni always have the ability to communicate with members of their clinical team by telephone. We encourage the building of close relationships with a sponsor and active involvement with a 12-Step support group such as Alcoholics Anonymous or Narcotics Anonymous. Of course, alumni are always welcome to attend our in-house AA/NA meetings and alumni events.

Weekly Aftercare Meetings

Annual Alumni Picnic
