Aftercare – Outpatient Program

Extensive Aftercare Program

Our extensive Aftercare program incorporates all the elements of our long-standing -- and long-running -- Sober Home program. In Aftercare you’ll partake in a three-hour spiritual group session with Minister to the Community Rabbi Mark “The Gromit” Rotenberg. It revolves around of a round-robin check-in. The check-in will give you an opportunity to address whatever’s arisen throughout the week -- good, bad and/or indifferent. It will also give you an opportunity to get feedback and input from Rabbi Mark himself, who’s got two decades in recovery, as well as from your peers, who are not only on the same page of the program, but who often share similar paths as you. It often takes the perspective of a friend to help you see the truth about it. And the check-in will unleash a myriad of fresh perspective.

Steel on Steel

Speaking of perspective... Our Aftercare program also includes one of the most perspective-expanding programs in recovery. It’s called Steel on Steel. It was devised and refined many years ago by members of Alcoholics Anonymous. Steel on Steel is, by definition, a Spiritual Exercise, specifically designed for A.A. members who are set on attaining a deeper connection to their spiritual connection. In actuality, it’s an advanced method of achieving unparalleled enlightenment. The name springs from the Spiritual Principal, which reads “As iron sharpens iron, so one man sharpens another.” And its ultimate goal is to reach the highest realms of the Fellowship of the Spirit. As you might expect, the undertaking requires an intense personal commitment. But by this time, you’ll have already made an intense personal commitment, so this will simply further embed you in the process of your own recovery. Put simply, Steel on Steel ain’t for the faint of heart. But it is for the man who’s looking to fully put his heart into the matter, once and for all.


Aftercare is where you’ll find -- and reap the benefits of -- ever strengthening fellowship. Fellowship itself is all about heart. Where to place it. How to listen to it. How to follow it. And how best to share it with others. It’s about enlarging your heart to include the company of men who, like you, are seeking to reach out and help someone other than themselves. If recovery is about living a truly heartfelt life (and it is), then fellowship is about having the heart to do just that.

We’ve had our heart in fellowship since we opened our doors back in 2002. A fact that’s especially evident in our Aftercare program. Fellowship serves as the very cornerstone of our philosophy. And it’ll continue to serve us so long as there are men in need of our help. Why? Because, like we said, fellowship is a crucial component of recovery.
The fellowship found in those who are on the same path, confronting the same issues, and possessing the same goals, yields formidable strength to all concerned. You’ll feel it for yourself. In every aspect of your being. After all, by the time you’ve reached Aftercare, you and your peers will have at least 90 days of sobriety. 90 days!
You will have faced your fears together, immersed yourself in the program and taken the steps necessary to move above and beyond what brought you to your lowest. You’ll also have forged unbreakable bonds. The kind of bonds that create lifelong friendships, which tie you to a whole new family. A family of men who are all committed to living full and sober lives.

Continuing In-House Support

Aftercare doesn’t mean an end to in-house support. You’ll also still have access to all of our recovery counselors, whether it’s your individual therapist, your caseworker or our in-house team of behavioral techs and facilitators. That is to say, you’ll still have the safety net provided throughout your time at Healing Properties. You’ll be trusted, because you’ll have earned it. Our trust, as well as the trust of others. And -- yes! -- you’ll once again be trusting yourself.

The Power of Precedence

Aftercare is where you’ll join the ranks of nearly two decades of prior recovery practice. It means access to all the insight gathered by and from the 7000-plus men who preceded you here. It will allow you to avoid the many mistakes that might trip you up and also permit you to take advantage of the many successes that will enable you to soar. You’ll garner the strength and the solidity of an extended sober family; a family who’ve extended their hands directly to you. They’ve set the stage for your sobriety, it’s now up to you. Each step will bring you closer to your goal -- long-term sobriety.

Restoration, Reformation & Transformation

Consider Aftercare as much a restoration as a reformation of your entire life. A restoring of the bonds between loved ones, your standing in the community, the respect of yourself and others. Together, the two will combine to provide a total transformation. Basically, the start of a new life. The new you might not recognize many of the characteristics that made up the old you. Then again, it won’t want to. It won’t need to either. You will now be able to recognize the truly important aspects of your life, and how best to appreciate those aspects. And at the end of the day, you’ll be putting into practice the one essential element of genuine recovery -- gratitude.


Individuals who enter into our Outpatient program (OP) will find that the continued support in this level of care is essential to maintaining long-term recovery. You must meet the following criteria to be able to participate in Outpatient programing: you must be medically and psychiatrically stable, abstinent from substances, and have completed treatment in a Residential, Partial Hospitalization, or Intensive-Outpatient setting. Transitioning into the local community and participating in everyday life can bring difficult challenges into your early recovery. However, an Outpatient program will allow you to have support and structure while maintaining employment at a full-time job.
Outpatient programming involves one group therapy session per week and one individual session per week with your primary therapist. This program will allow you to have a more flexible schedule as you begin to become more engaged in your life in early recovery.
