"The Phase that helps you leave the pat behind, provokes you to prosper in the present and prepares you to soar in the future"
The Aftercare Program's main goal is to ensure that the members of the recovery community continue to apply the information and recovery tools they obtain while in treatment in order to move forward to the next phase and begin a manifestation process. It is not another group that members attend to discuss their addiction and addictive behaviors.
It is Self Inc.'s desire that once the members complete the program they will have obtained a sense of independence and a greater self-sufficiency. The Aftercare Program encourages members to continue to experience the rewards of sobriety.
