What now? It’s often the question families and their loved ones are faced with during discharge planning. 30 days to three months have passed bringing up that time for primary treatment to end and for a loved one to return home. Hired Power recommends a transition plan, ongoing communication, and random drug screenings as the most important components for encouraging long term recovery once your loved one comes home.

  • Transition Plan: many residential inpatient treatment programs are slacking on their aftercare and accountability. That’s why Hired Power has created the role of Personal Recovery Assistants and our Sober Monitoring services program. Together with a certified case manager, we help you and your family create a plan to take the best of treatment home in order to make the years of recovery the best of your lives. From finding a nearby therapist to creating a schedule of recovery support meetings, attending programs at lower levels of care and checking-in, we help your loved one transition into a new way of living, clean and sober from drugs and alcohol.
  • Ongoing Communication: One of the easiest ways to lose touch with recovery is to get out of touch with recovery. We often say “you can’t transmit something you haven’t got!” Our weekly phone calls, email check-in’s and system for documenting progress helps you and your family stay connected, stay open in communication, and stay accountable. With our years of professional and personal experience in the addiction and recovery field we have developed a system for identifying triggers and barriers to lifelong recovery. When your loved one reports a significant change behavior, like not going to the therapist or meetings anymore, we will take the action necessary to help get them back on track.
  • Random Drug Screenings: You are learning to trust your loved one in recovery and they are learning to trust themselves. Random drug screenings help make sure that nothing has happened in hiding. Relapse does happen, but it doesn’t have to. Random drug screenings are a proven way to help maintain clean accountability.

Most importantly, your loved one needs your unconditional love, support, and encouragement. With the help of the professionals at Hired Power, we take the role of watchdog off your back and help you do what you do best: love your family. By creating an accountability system outside the home, your family is free to heal, grow, and connect. That’s the gift of recovery.

Hired Power is here to help you bring recovery home. For more information on our recovery services for you, your loved one, and your family, call us today at 800-910-9299.
