AFTERCARE  

Aftercare services are offered to graduates of all of our programs. These services are crucial to the recovery process as they are offered to our clients at a very vulnerable time: during the transition into independent living and family reunification while maintaining sobriety. The following are our aftercare programs:


Outpatient

The outpatient program serves women on parole, women referred as an alternative to incarceration and women from the community requiring substance abuse services. These women may or may not have participated in Greenhope’s residential and/or day treatment programs. Some clients may have parole and/or court stipulations that they participate in aftercare outpatient services.

Clients are usually employed or attending school. This six-month program meets Monday, Wednesday, and Thursday usually between the hours of 4:00 pm to 10:00 pm. However, programming can be adjusted to fit each individual’s needs.

Clients may choose to attend during the day or evening based upon their work, training or school schedule. Clients receive individual substance abuse counseling, relapse prevention workshops and employment retention group. Clients meet with vocational counselors monthly in order to assess and monitor vocational progress.

Alumnae Association

The alumnae association was established in 2001. With twenty-five active members, the alumnae association meets regularly to provide support to women who have successfully graduated from our programs.

The association has elected officers and meets monthly to network, share life experiences and offer support to current clients. Women of the association coordinate and participate in community events and fundraisers. During the yearly graduation ceremonies, the association presents an award to an alumnus for her excellence in the recovery process and also to a Greenhope staff member for his/her excellence in treatment services.

Aftercare and Follow-up Initiative

With funding in part by Council Member Inez E. Dickens, 9th C.D., Speaker Christine Quinn and the New York City Council, Greenhope will be able to offer a new Aftercare and Follow-up initiative for its graduates and graduates of citywide substance abuse/alternative to incarceration programs for women. It is at this time, after graduation, that women are particularly vulnerable to relapse and recidivism given the immense pressures of re-entry such as family reconciliation, job retention, housing, relapse prevention and adherence to health care. Greenhope proposes to significantly enhance its current Aftercare program by becoming a citywide, comprehensive support and follow up center for women transitioning to independent living offering family therapy, vocational/educational counseling, parenting skills, and housing and medical assistance.
