Secondary Treatment in and Around London information


There are many kinds and phases of liquor and alcohol treatments provided by care-takers. Frequently, a continuum of care benefits individuals struggling with addiction with graduated levels of structure and support. Not all people require full on treatment and they do well inpatient treatment or rehab, while others require a longer time to recover in primary care and then onto a house of sobriety. Secondary treatment is available in some centres. The level of care (essential, auxiliary or tertiary), relies on upon individual needs, funds and different other elements.


The initial phase of recovery which is made up of inpatient medical care or rehab starts with a detailed evaluation and detox procedure. Once the detox has finished the patient will benefit from intensive counselling, both alone and in groups, to help them understand how addiction affects the mind and the body. This environment enables the patient to develop coping techniques, confidence building and the ability to identify triggers.

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

  • Primary treatment focusses on developing a solid base for prolong the recovery
  • The extent differs extensively but can range up to 30-90 days
  • Secondary treatment is not available at all centres but is a transitional phase completed after the primary phase

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 stage is strong however to some degree less organized than primary treatment. This stage lasts from 1 to 6 months and will help an individual return to a sober life.

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. Secondary medical care most of the time spans 1 to 6 months.

Move Back To A Sober Life In London

In sober living homes, individuals who require lasting assistance obtain help as they slowly return to their daily lives. Also support given family and friends during recuperation is very important. Sober living homes aren't just composed of 'houses', there are also condominiums, apartments and even residential areas composed of several houses. Residents usually pay a fee to cover room and board and may be expected to pay for their own food.


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.


Lasts For Two To Three Months

The rules require for the people living in sober living houses to carry out household chores and there is often a curfew. In comparison to the primary and secondary care, sober living houses provide more private responsibility. Residents are typically permitted to come and go during the day but are required to work or attend 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.
