“Acutecare” Aftercare Program
“Acutecare” is Hills & Ranges Private’s Aftercare program – one of the many ways in which the treatment of addiction mirrors the treatment of any chronic condition. Our aftercare plan is, in many ways, similar to a discharge plan from hospitalisation to treat any chronic condition. In the treatment of substance abuse disorders, aftercare planning must include:
- Proper understanding of the severity of the condition Identification of potential barriers to successful treatment Outpatient care expectations
- Appointment setting
- A realistic, sustainable self-management plan
- A protection plan to activate in the event of triggers
- A regrouping plan in the event of relapse
Hills & Ranges Private operate a free, lifelong, aftercare program that consists 2 contact hours every week, and ongoing counselling as required.
In addition to the ‘sobriety companion’ process, Hills and Ranges Private has a Residential Reintegration Program in Melbourne. This is available to clients who have completed a 30 or 90-day Comprehensive Residential Treatment at our rural facility.
Our Reintegration Program provides stable and supervised accommodation for a further 90-day period, including ongoing treatment provisions. Our Reintegration Program gives clients the opportunity to successfully reintegrate into the community with professional support, mentorship and a stable home environment.
