Why Outpatient Treatment Works

My experience at the Athens Area Commencement Center was enlightening, to say the least. Looking back, being able to go home at night was a very positive thing, because I had looked at long term in-house treatment facilities and did not want to be separated from my family and job to get treatment. After graduation from the Commencement Center program, I entered their Aftercare Program, which kept me accountable for my sobriety and gave me a group setting with other recovering alcoholics and addicts to discuss life’s situations in early recovery. I was also encouraged to get involved with one of the Twelve Step Programs early on and was taken to AA meetings while in I was in treatment. Today I am sober and living a life I could never have imagined!
