Men’s Second-Stage & Aftercare Program
Our Men’s Second-Stage & Aftercare Program is designed to offer continued support to men who have successfully completed the 60-day treatment program. Our second stage houses offer structure and safety, and keep clients connected with the treatment community that is conducive to their long-term sobriety.
Aftercare planning is an essential part of the InnerVisions treatment program. Before each client completes their 60-day treatment program, staff work with them to establish a custom-tailored plan for continued success in recovery. Different clients need guidance to different resources in order to ensure their long-term recovery, and our staff are committed to helping each client connect with the services that will help them best meet their needs. Our staff help each client to connect with out-patient resources, mental health supports, and community services in their communities so that when they return home they have these connections. Alumni are invited to continue to attend meetings at Miller House and Prairie House in order to stay connected to the community.
We offer optional second-stage housing for clients to reside in after completing the InnerVisions treatment program. Our second-stage housing is a highly effective resource for men in their Aftercare plans, and is recommended to any clients who feel that a more long-term residential setting would be most beneficial for their recovery.
- Relapse prevention
- Educational and Employment opportunities
- Repairing relationships with family and friends
- Continued engagement with the recovery community
Remote Aftercare Counselling
InnerVisions offers a remote aftercare program for clients that have completed our 60-day treatment program. The program includes weekly sessions by phone with one of our aftercare counsellors. This is an opportunity for clients to maintain their program objectives, and review their progression through their relapse prevention plan that is designed with staff before completion of the in-patient program. There are also weekly remote group sessions with a facilitator that teaches and reinforces topics such as: Setting Boundaries, Assertiveness, Communication Skills, Grounding, Relaxation and Meditation, Healthy Relationships, and Stress Management.
Second-stage residences are available for those who have successfully completed the InnerVisions treatment program. We have designed a structured support system within the second-stage houses that, if followed diligently, is highly effective. Our second-stage housing is a great resource for clients whose home environment is not conducive to their recovery, and it allows our clients to enhance their aftercare program by staying directly involved with the InnerVisions community. Second-stage clients are invited to give back by volunteering at Miller House and Prairie House and continuing to help newcomers in our program. We recommend second-stage to any of our clients who feel they would benefit from a more long-term residential setting for their treatment needs.
