Aftercare Services for Drug & Alcohol Addiction in Nova Scotia

Aftercare programs are commonly provided when someone completes an inpatient or an outpatient drug and alcohol treatment center. The aftercare process is there to help recovering addict's transition back into society again and continue to work on their sobriety. This can include gaining new employment, becoming connected with other sober individuals and people who continually work at sobriety and living a sober life. An aftercare program can also include sober living communities, which are communities of people who live together and are in recovery from addictions. Transitional homes and halfway houses are there for offenders who were caught up in the criminal-justice system because of their addiction and require a place to be after treatment. Regardless of the aftercare treatment available, recovering addicts should make every effort to continue to work on his or her sobriety through the support of others or organizations who support sobriety.

More Info

Marcel Gemme has been helping people struggling with addiction for over 19 years. He first started as an intake counselor for a drug rehabilitation center in 2000. During his 5 years as an intake counselor, he helped many addicts get the treatment they needed. He also dealt with the families and friends of those people; he saw first-hand how much strain addiction puts on a family and how it can tear relationships apart. With drug and alcohol problems constantly on the rise in the United States and Canada, he decided to use the Internet as a way to educate and help many more people in both those countries. This was 15 years ago. Since then, Marcel has built two of the largest websites in the U.S. and Canada which reach and help millions of people each year. He is an author and a leader in the field of drug and alcohol addiction. His main focus is threefold: education, prevention and rehabilitation.
