Recovery is a lifelong journey. We work with you to develop a continuing care plan that best suits your unique needs and helps you live a life free from addiction — for good. Every day, you choose to recover from a substance use disorder. While our treatment programs support you in getting sober, addressing the root cause of addiction and treating any co-occurring conditions, you also have to continue that work after leaving Ashley.
Continuing Care services at Ashley help you get a handle on the logistics of a new life in recovery. After completing initial treatment for substance use disorder, our Continuing Care Department maintains communication between you, your family, our outbound programs and your outside providers to create a unique, effective continuing care plan. Your customized plan will integrate the right balance of medical, psychological, spiritual, holistic or 12-Step practices because we want to support you through your entire journey — not just the beginning.

What happens after treatment?
During treatment, you will meet on a regular basis with a case management team to assess your recovery efforts and begin arranging your next step after completing treatment. For many patients, an aftercare treatment plan may include extended care in a sober living/recovery housing arrangement, intensive outpatient or outpatient programs, individual therapy or sobriety coaching. Regardless of your needs, we will work on an individualized plan to ensure you’re completing treatment on a path for continued recovery success.
Having an understanding of where you stand in the recovery process is critical to being able to adjust to living a safe, healthy life. During and after treatment, you will have access to support groups and helpful resources to help you address daily challenges and answer questions you may have about maintaining a healthy life in recovery.

Peer support from people who’ve been where you are
Several of our non-clinical staff are also Maryland Certified Peer Recovery Specialists (CPRS). This certification is for Case Managers who are in recovery from a behavioral health disorder and are trained to use their experience to serve as part of your continuing care team. Each CPRS has also completed CCAR Recovery Coach Academy Training to better equip them to prepare you for your recovery journey after leaving Ashley.
Peer support staff have two functions at Ashley. As Case Managers, they provide you with an individualized set of tools to succeed in your recovery. As discharge planners, they help you develop a blueprint for maintaining your sobriety as you fully reintegrate into your new life.
