The Various Treatment Options Available

How the Rehab Process Works
Not only are there different types of treatment, there are different phases of treatment too.
Generally, all the highlighted treatment types are used in all the phases of treatment.
When you decide to reach out and ask for help, this is your first port of call. You will become part of an intensive programme that usually lasts three weeks and receive support from a multidisciplinary team at the facility.
Extended Primary Phase
After months or years of addictive behaviour, it’s pretty difficult to change in just three short weeks. That is why most facilities offer you the opportunity to stay longer. Give yourself time to get to know the new you.
The Secondary Phase is where you get to continue developing skills that will assist you in leading a sober life, as well as an opportunity to integrate what you have already learnt.
After Care Programme
The After Care Treatment Programme is a great way to slowly get back into your old life. In this phase you can return to work and you social life but still have the grounding support from professionals and others in recovery.
