What is Secondary Treatment in Essex


Different types and levels of care are offered by drug and alcohol treatment providers. Most of the time, individuals who are having dependency difficulties gain from range of treatment with developing phases of programmes and assistance. 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. 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.

In primary treatment, the most serious side is family involvement in the recovery phase.

  • Primary medical care establishes a firm support for lasting recovery
  • Duration differs widely but usually spans at least 30 to 90 days
  • Secondary treatment is a second stage that starts after successfully undergoing the primary treatment

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 as a rule keeps going one to six months, and is valuable for people who require help figuring out how to explore every day existence without substances.

This phase is a perilous time for some in recuperation and danger of backslide 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. Secondary treatment usually takes one to six months.

Tertiary Treatment In Essex

People who need the long-term support find the tertiary treatment (Sober Living Houses) more helpful as they gradually ease back into life. The encouragement of others during recovery is one crucial factor. 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.


Sober living houses have varied treatment structures, but the objective of such houses is to give a protected, quiet environment for successful recuperation and help people adapt to renewed , calm way of life.


Lasts For Two To Three Months

Rules including a curfew and involvement in household chores. Calm living homes require more moral obligation than primary or secondary care. Residents are typically permitted to come and go during the day but are required to work or attend school. Random drug assessment is mostly conducted and those who resulted positive are required to leave the house and will be sent for primary medical care.
