To insure long-term recovery, The Lakehouse Recovery Center offers one year of monitored aftercare. Each resident receives a trained recovery advocate who will regularly contact the patient to follow up on their discharge plan. These advocates will track the progress by phone or Skype to make sure patients follow up with their doctors and therapists, go to 12-step meetings, and are in contact with their sponsors.

In addition, if a client in primary care elects to transition into a Sober Living home, they will continue their group and individual therapy with the same therapeutic team they began with in primary care with one of the Intensive Outpatient Programs.
