Instant Aftercare Program for Better Patient Outcomes
Aftercare is shown to improve patient health outcomes and decrease relapse rates.
Also called continued care, aftercare has been recognized as a differentiating factor in patients’ continued sobriety, especially for patients with opioid use disorder. But many centers don’t have the time, money, or staff to dedicate to developing and maintaining an effective aftercare program. It’s even more challenging to create a program that supports ongoing medication-assisted treatment (MAT).
Most rehab facilities choose to refer out their aftercare to another organization. This often has the effect of:
- Reducing momentum built with the patient
- Losing the ability to track patient outcomes
- Forgo continued billables
- Disrupting the recovery process
