* relapse prevention planning, which starts while you’re still in treatment;
* stepped down care options such as intensive outpatient programs (IOPs) and sober living;
* aftercare programs that allow you to continue your therapeutic progress from home; and
* group meetings to help you build and maintain a sober support network.
