Leaving Rehab is Only The Beginning
For many of our patients, leaving rehab brings up a lot of different emotions. Some will feel a great sense of relief and excitement at reuniting with their loved ones and finally living a life free from addiction. For others, the transition can feel overwhelming and daunting, which is why at Castle Craig, we place such importance on continued care and preparing you for life outside of rehab.
However you’re feeling in your final week with us, we hope you begin to embrace this new chapter, knowing that our dedicated team is here to help you with this transition every step of the way.
The Final Week at Castle Craig
In the days leading up to your departure, you will work closely with your focal therapist to put together a detailed continuing care plan to ensure a stress-free transition.
During your final days at Castle Craig, one of our continuing care therapists from CATCH Recovery will be in touch to arrange a session for you as soon as possible. Rest assured, you won’t leave until your first session with this therapist has been scheduled.
During this final week, your therapist will also book your first group therapy session post-treatment to make sure you continue receiving the support you need during this time. You will also have the opportunity to register for Recovery Club, our supportive aftercare community that keeps you connected with peers and resources.
Our approach to continuing care means that each patient leaves Castle Craig with a strong support system in place, which in turn can have a positive impact on your ability to maintain sobriety and well-being.
Your last day at Castle Craig is just the beginning of a new chapter. We’re committed to supporting you every step of the way.
Your safety and well-being are our utmost concern, even after you leave rehab. Most patients prefer to have a friend or family member pick them up from rehab, however, we understand this isn’t an option for everyone, so if you’re unable to make arrangements with a relative, our services can provide a seamless connection to Edinburgh or Glasgow either by taxi, train or plane.
Your First Week at Home
Leaving a structured environment like Castle Craig and stepping into your new life is yet a daunting experience. It’s a time filled with newfound freedom, mixed with the challenges of integrating back into daily life. This initial period may feel strange or even overwhelming, as you transition from the supportive setting of Castle Craig to the autonomy of your home environment.
It’s crucial to remember that it’s perfectly normal to feel a bit out of place during this first week. Your routines, surroundings, and even interactions have shifted, and it takes time to adjust. This period of adaptation is a critical part of your recovery journey. It’s important to manage your expectations and be gentle with yourself. Avoid overloading your schedule or getting too stressed about the changes. Embrace this time as an opportunity to slowly find your new rhythm in a familiar yet different setting.
Continuous Support with Recovery Club
As you navigate this new chapter, Castle Craig ensures that you’re not alone in this journey. As part of your continuing care plan, you’re granted access to the Recovery Club, a platform designed to provide ongoing support and resources to help you maintain your recovery.
The Recovery Club offers a variety of resources from weekly online support groups, regular support & check-in calls to help you stay connected, an online chat forum and an emergency support line in moments that you need help or guidance.
Remember, your first week at home is a significant milestone in your recovery. While it may come with its challenges, it’s also filled with opportunities for growth and self-discovery. With the support of Castle Craig and the resources provided through the Recovery Club, you’re well-equipped to navigate this new phase with confidence and resilience. Embrace this journey, one day at a time, knowing that you’re supported every step of the way.
Moving Forward with Your Recovery
As you embark on the next part of your recovery, it’s important to remember that the early post-rehab- stages can be both exhilarating and challenging. Castle Craig is committed to supporting you every step of the way, especially during these crucial initial stages.
One of the most empowering aspects of your long-term recovery journey is the sense of community. Castle Craig’s reunion is a testament to this. It’s an event that not only celebrates your progress but also reinforces your connection with others who share similar experiences.
Remember, recovery is not a destination but a journey. As you move forward, take pride in your progress, no matter how small it may seem. Engage actively in your continuing care plan, and embrace opportunities like the reunion to deepen your commitment to recovery.
