Santé Center for Healing’s Discharge Planner begins aftercare planning as soon as a client is admitted. This planning phase is unique to each client and can include identifying and scheduling appointments with mental and behavioral health therapists and medical providers (psychiatrists or other addiction medicine doctors). Aftercare planning includes securing sobriety-supportive living arrangements when necessary, discovering local 12 Step chapter meetings, and gathering any necessary materials when a client is seeking employment or educational opportunities after discharge. At discharge, Alumni are automatically enrolled in Santé’s “Open Road” Alumni Program; access to the Alumni Coordinator is immediate and there will be at least one Alumni support activity or associated platform within a week of discharge.
