CFC Recovery (833-300-4673) in Farmingdale, NJ prepares you for life in sobriety with its peer-based SUD (Substance Use Disorder) aftercare program, where you get support from certified specialists.
If you recently have been or are about to be discharged from clinical care for an addiction- first of all, congratulations. You've taken the first important step to lead a healthy and happy life. But, and not to bring you down here, the reality is that it's going to be tough to get back to your normal life and remain sober. There's alcohol available around every corner, and you might have friends with an active addiction who don't fully respect your recovery.
The nonprofit organization CFC Recovery gets this and wants to teach you essential life skills to set you up for long-term sobriety. The founder, Daniel Regan, has battled with heroin addiction himself and has applied his first-hand experience when designing the month-long aftercare program IPRP (Intensive Peer Recovery Program). During your stay at the facility, you will get help from New Jersey Certified Peer Recovery Specialists (CPRS) and share your journey with others who have been in your shoes.

Data from the National Institute on Drug Abuse suggests that 40-60% of those in recovery relapse in the first year, underlining the difficulties of remaining sober in normal environments despite being free of withdrawal symptoms. Further, the American Addiction Centers divides the relapse process into three steps: emotional, mental, and physical. In an article, the organization explains that negative feelings can make an individual spiral into a state of mental relapse where they romanticize their addiction, leading them to start using again. It highlights the importance of a positive support system that can help the person get out of this negative mindset.
By offering professional support early in the journey to a life free of substances, CFC Recovery hopes to address the mental aspects of addiction and recovery and keep you away from the vicious relapse cycle.
The IPRP at CFC Recovery is a four-week-long peer-based program that runs from Monday to Thursday. It includes several themes that regard sobriety, for example, recovery planning. This part of the program gives you one-on-one time with a coach to create a Wellness Recovery Action Plan (WRAP) that helps you track your progress. The program also focuses on emotionally soothing techniques, like meditation and emotional awareness, that give you the confidence to handle stress without feeling the need to turn to old habits.
You'll also become part of CFC's recovery community, Loud N Clear, which fosters a supportive environment and offers the opportunity to interact with people in similar situations. The group hosts self-help meetings every week and also arranges activities, community givebacks, and speaker events that will give you a positive context to thrive without substances present.
