La Hacienda’s Continuing Care Department links our patients to the next steps in their recovery once they leave treatment. Our staff works closely with the case managers and other treatment team members to find the services that will meet the patients’ needs. We utilize a great number of resources - intensive outpatient programs, extended care facilities, therapists, and physicians. We are continually researching and growing our network of professionals so we refer to those providers whose philosophy is compatible with what we do here at La Hacienda. At La Hacienda, we know that one of the keys to recovery is what happens once someone leaves treatment.
The Continuing Care Plan is made up of three important components — body, mind, and spirit— so La Hacienda includes resources that address medical, clinical, and spiritual needs, in addition to 12 Step recovery groups and alumni meetings . Some patients need additional resources, for example, connections for college-based recovery support. The treatment team will help the patient set goals and determine a plan for staying on course after they have left La Hacienda. Finally, we conduct follow up phone calls with our alumni at one week, ninety days and one year after discharge. We check in with how they are doing and try to be a resource should there be any concerns that arise.
