After completing the 10-week residential programme in the Clinic, fellows have to face the most critical phase of the treatment process. They have rebuilt self-confidence, are motivated again, feel more energetic and are ready to make new plans. At the same time, they are insecure because they may have changed, but their social environment has stayed the same. For that reason, it is essential they receive a great level of support during this period.
Aftercare will start right after clinical treatment. One major part of the recovery process is to find purpose again. What are you going to do with your life and even more important; how are you going to do that? After spending 10 weeks in a safe and warm environment, going back can be very confronting, causing old behaviour and convenient habits to recur. Not being in a safe environment with the right guidance can lead to relapse and trigger severe consequences.
In close cooperation with the family, the fellow, possibly a referring therapist and our global network of healthcare professionals, a clear and attainable tailor-made programme will be suggested for you to follow at home, if needed supervised by a Recovery Coach.
In addition to that, we offer worldwide, digital group sessions as a follow-up on the 10-week residential treatment at Yes We Can Youth Clinics. For ten weeks, twice a week, fellows can attend digital group sessions in which they will receive intensive guidance from a professional therapist. During these sessions, the therapist, but also the fellows themselves, support each other to implement their recovery into daily life. Their aim is to create meaningful daytime activities like school or work. Fellows learn how to deal with triggers and pitfalls and how to prevent a relapse into old behaviour.
We help the fellows re-integrating into society by means of an activating and motivating digital programme where taking responsibility is an important factor. We achieve this, together with the fellows, by working on their personal development in all areas of life. The vision is that the youngsters themselves take action and do the work. Yes We Do!
