Following Detox , Primary Treatment clients are introduced to basic recovery concepts and will be encouraged to begin to explore the recovery process. Clients will participate in daily group therapy sessions, one-one counselling and regular lectures and workshops on addiction and recovery related topics such as relapse prevention, anger management, relationships etc. We focus on self-esteem during this stage of treatment as although the alcoholic or addict often presents various defence mechanisms, the truth is clients usually feel down on themselves which perpetuates the cycle of addiction. Alternative therapies are also offered throughout this stage of treatment.
Clients in this stage are supported to 12 Step community based evening meetings, of either Alcoholics Anonymous, Cocaine Anonymous or Narcotics Anonymous. This is an essential part of treatment as recent research clearly demonstrates that good affiliations with these support groups increase the chance of long term recovery.
Secondary Treatment continues along the same format as the previous stage although the emphasis shifts towards relapse prevention, family therapy and putting together a solid structure and plans for life after treatment. Comprehensive aftercare packages are also available and encouraged to aid long term recovery.
If you think you or someone you know is dependent on drugs or alcohol, now is the time to let us help you make the right choice.
