Different types and levels of care are offered by drug and alcohol treatment providers. Frequently, a continuum of care benefits individuals struggling with addiction with graduated levels of structure and support. Somehow, the people who recover fast need only primary care which is inpatient treatment or rehab but for people who require a much longer support-system and extra recovery time needs sober living house (tertiary treatment). Secondary treatment is the additional treatment phase given by some rehab centres. The level of care (essential, auxiliary or tertiary), relies on upon individual needs, funds and different other elements.
Consisting of inpatient treatment or rehab the primary treatment (the first level of recovery) starts with a thorough assessment and detox. Once the body is completely detoxified, customers are offered structured one-on-one and group guidance. This helps them see how drug addiction influences the psyche and body. In this highly therapeutic atmosphere, clients identify triggers, build confidence, develop coping techniques and address different psychological problems that frequently accompany addiction.
Involvement by the family is highly recommended.
Primary medical care establishes a firm support for lasting recovery
Your stay will vary in length from at least 30 days to 90 days
After primary treatment, the secondary treatment which is the middle treatment phase starts
Working closely with the therapist is necessary for people during treatment as they give you advice regarding psychological and emotional matters in depth and help you to understand the behaviours that cause addiction. This phase is supportive but somehow less structured than primary treatment. It usually takes one to six months and is beneficial for individuals who require help learning to navigate daily life without substances.
This is a very serious time for many in recovery and risk of relapse is high. After completion of their treatment, people begin to make their lives more accountable and responsible. Secondary treatment for the most part endures one to six months.
Tertiary Treatment (Sober Living Houses) is required for those people who need help for longer terms because they recover slowly During recovery, help of others as a support-system is a dangerous element. Sober living homes aren't just composed of 'houses', there are also condominiums, apartments and even residential areas composed of several houses. Residents pay for a room and their board and sometimes their own food.
The goal in a sober living house is to provide safe and peaceful surroundings while individuals adjust to a sober life.
Patients May Stay For Two To Three Months
Residents of sober living houses are expected to stick to different regulations, often consisting of a curfew and participation in household tasks. Calm living homes require more moral obligation than primary or secondary care. Residents are usually allowed to come and go freely during the day but are mostly expected to work or attend school. A negative result to a random drug test could have you back in rehab and you will be asked to leave the sober house.
Drug Rehab Cardiff is different from the rest our treatment has an aftercare in which a live-in therapist returns home with the client and stays at the client's home for weeks and sometimes a few months to help the client settle into their daily life. This medical care phase is followed by a stage wherein the patient and specialist contact each other through mobile or Skype.
