Three months in-house/Nine months outpatient
Preparation is a period for him to get ready to graduate the Project Rescue Program. When a member graduates, it is a very dangerous time.
To prevent relapse, when the recovering addict returns home, he must begin to replicate the support he had in the in-house program.
1. Outpatient is a time for testing the member’s spiritual growth!
2. During the preparation period, we urge him set up a support (Christian & recovery friends) system for when he graduates.
3. He needs to immediately find an accountability friend. This needs to be someone other than a family member, who he trusts and respects. It needs to be a man who is knowledgeable about addiction recovery. This is who will drug/alcohol test him if it is necessary.
If/When a 3/9 program member relapses on outpatient, he must re-enter the in-house program or be expelled.
