Aftercare Guidelines for Drug and Alcohol Program Advisors
BUREAU OF NAVAL PERSONNEL WASHINGTON DC
Pagination or Media Count:
The Navys philosophy is to treat and return to full duty eligible former alcohol and other drug abusers. The treatment program is but a beginning in a lifelong recovery process. Aftercare is the most critical part of this process ensuring productivity and maximization of resources. OPNAV Instruction series mandates a one-year period of aftercare for all members completing either Level II or III treatment. Your DAPA has learned some of the necessary aftercare tools at the DAPA Course. Because aftercare is so critical, I feel these Guidelines will assist your DAPA in providing the best service possible. The information and resources listed in these Guidelines should be of particular value to the DAPA serving in areas where local community support e.g., AANAOA meetings or Counseling and Assistance Center groups is limited or unavailable.
