Continuing Care


Just as a multidisciplinary approach is taken in the initial assessment process, equal attention is given to continuing care after leaving HeadWaters. We begin preparing for discharge upon admission so that all HeadWaters’ clients are guided and supported on a long-term basis. The client’s multidisciplinary clinical team, in consultation with family and referents, will develop a continuing care program that is customized to that his or her needs.

The plan will include ongoing clinical support, with therapists identified and sessions already arranged before the client leaves HeadWaters.

The client will be provided a 12-Step meeting schedule and therapy for their post-treatment destination.

Long-term sobriety is also dependent upon ongoing relationships with others who are immersed in the solution found within the 12 Steps, and carrying the message to the alcoholic or addict who still suffers. The clinical team will discuss and address ways in which spiritual renewal can continue and grow, including the development of a sober support network. They will also explore ways the client may be of service to his community.

An intervention plan will be established should there be a crisis.

There will be consultations with and referrals to all pertinent professionals, including coordination with therapists, physicians, psychopharmacologists and psychiatrists.

The team will make recommendations for, and help schedule returns to HeadWaters for continued therapy, a one-week recharge visit or other options.
