Patients leave the safe space of treatment center life and re-enter the world where challenges, obstacles, and triggers for their addiction confront them.
To provide assistance during this vulnerable time, Recovery Centers of America (“RCA”) patients currently have a substantial alumni program, with 15,000 members, offering sober social, educational, and cultural events each week for former patients.
In addition to the alumni program, Recovery Centers of America at Lighthouse is piloting a new program for its patients that begins … after treatment.
The program, called MAP Care Solutions, features continued regular personal and online support for RCA patients after inpatient or outpatient treatment.
“Being able to connect to others in sobriety is central to developing a solid personal recovery. RCA and MAP Care Solutions provides a way for both the person seeking recovery and their family to develop and maintain that connection,” said David Dorschu, chief executive officer at Recovery Centers of America at Lighthouse in Mays Landing, New Jersey outside of Atlantic City in southern Jersey.
Certified MAP peer support recovery specialists will be there for an RCA patient’s journey after addiction treatment during the first twelve months or longer, if needed. These specialists help plan personal goals and recovery lifestyles; they also offer assistance regarding the identification of early relapse warning signs.
