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. Some, however, do well with mere primary care depending on inpatient treatment or rehab, while others, advance from primary care to the sober living house (tertiary treatment) especially those who need more support and a longer recovery period. Some treatment facilities give an additional phase as auxiliary treatment. It is on user wants, financial condition and issues which shows the level of care (primary, secondary, or tertiary).
After a thorough assessment the primary treatment is the first stage of recovery and consists of inpatient treatment or rehab. When the person gets out from the addiction, he/she understands how these drugs and alcohol abuse create a negative impacts on their life and concentrated group discussions will also provide help to addicts. This environment enables the patient to develop coping techniques, confidence building and the ability to identify triggers.
Family engagement is usually suggested as a critic aspect of primary treatment.
The ongoing treatment gives the client the change to work with therapists who address psychological and emotional issues to allow a better understanding the behaviours that lead to addiction. This phase is supportive but somehow less structured than primary treatment. It helps the users to manage their daily routine, it has a span of one to six months.
This is a very serious time for many in recovery and risk of relapse is high. As people start the process of returning to daily routines, they learn the importance of responsibility and accountability and gradually regain more control of their lives. The duration of secondary treatment is one to six months
People who need the long-term support find the tertiary treatment (Sober Living Houses) more helpful as they gradually ease back into life. During recovery, help of others as a support-system is a dangerous element. Sober living houses aren't always "houses", but may consist of apartment, condos, or even residential neighbourhoods of different houses. Some money is required from the inhabitants for a room and sometimes they have to pay for their food too.
The programme used by sober living homes can differ although the main objective is to give a secure atmosphere for continuous recovery as individuals adapt to a new life of sobriety.
Occupants of calm living houses are required to follow specific standards, regularly comprising of a check in time and cooperation in family errands. Personal responsibility is the main aim in a sober house. 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.
Alcohol Rehab Hampshire 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. A period of time is required for this phase in which the client and therapist interact via phone Skype.
