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. A number though fare well with just the initial care which includes inpatient programme or rehab while for some, like those who require additional assistance and longer recuperating time, proceed from initial care to sober living homes (tertiary programmes). A number of treatment facilities offer supplementary steps which may come in the form of secondary medical care. It is on user wants, financial condition and issues which shows the level of care (primary, secondary, or tertiary).
The initial phase of recovery which is made up of inpatient medical care or rehab starts with a detailed evaluation and detox procedure. Clients benefit from intensive one-on-one and group counselling once the substance has left the body, which helps them understand how addiction affects the mind and body. In the recovery phase, users get motivated, identify their issues related to addiction, and build up recovery methods.
Involvement by the family is highly recommended.
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. Most of the time it spans 1 to 6 months and is beneficial for patients who require assistance in knowing how to live life without drugs.
The risk of relapse is high at this point of the treatment. 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.
In sober living homes, individuals who require lasting assistance obtain help as they slowly return to their daily lives. During recovery, help of others as a support-system is a dangerous element. Sober house doesn't mean it is a house, it can often be a flat or apartment. 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.
The rules require for the people living in sober living houses to carry out household chores and there is often a curfew. Calm living homes require more moral obligation than primary or secondary care. There is no restriction on the inhabitants to come and go at any time, but they are confined to work or school. Primary treatment is referred to anyone whose drug test result is positive and sometimes random testing is undertaken with the chance of a negative result the person is asked to leave and requested to attend rehab again.
