At Houghton House we do not believe addiction is determined purely by a persons willpower or strength of character. Intensive and ongoing treatment is often the vital ingredients needed to beat alcohol and drug addiction. Houghton House Primary Care is the first port of call for people suffering with an alcohol or drug dependency.
Tertiary care is intended for individuals who have completed a residential treatment programme and are willing to commit to long-term, structured living. Recovery from addiction and alcoholism is a life-long process which requires ongoing commitment. Once a recovering addict/alcoholic moves out of a structured environment, the chances of a relapse increase.
Because addiction affects all areas of a person’s life, recovering addicts and alcoholics need to establish and maintain a completely new lifestyle once the detoxification phase of their recovery (or primary care) has been seen through. The GAP secondary care facility offers help establishing a new lifestyle, focusing on building self-awareness and creating a stronger recovery process.
