Substance use and co-occurring mental health disorders are chronic conditions that require life-long management. With an appropriate regime of healthcare, wellness, self-care, and other supports, recovery and high quality of life can be maintained. The process of discharge planning establishes the network of providers and services that help individuals and families maintain a healthy recovery.

Thoughtful discharge planning can significantly increase the likelihood of ongoing treatment success. However, identifying and coordinating the specialized care providers and services each person requires can be daunting.

Our Northern Virginia outpatient addiction treatment services have relationships with provider organizations around the country, and works closely with clients to identify resources that will meet their needs. By the time clients are ready to leave treatment at Encore Outpatient Services, they have a comprehensive ongoing care plan in place, are connected to future care providers, and are ready to continue healing, growth, and recovery.
