First Steps in Substance Abuse Treatment
Many people, the first step toward recovery is coming to terms with their personal struggle with Substance Abuse dependence. The next step is which approaches for drug addiction recovery are considered and a treatment programme that will help restore health, well-being and life. Patients with severe forms of addiction, opioid dependence, prescription drug or other illicit drug co-occurring disorders may have to do a medically assisted detox to overcome withdrawal symptoms before the rehab process takes place. After our treatment programme, it is always recommended to continue the lessons learned in residential treatment by attending ongoing support groups and therapy sessions.
Medical Assessments and Counselling
Services like medical assessments, individual, family therapy and group counselling, supervised recreational activities, and treatment approaches are incorporated into each of our addiction treatment outpatient rehab and inpatient programmes.
Lengths of stay for addiction recovery are structured to accommodate the individual needs of recovering addicts at various points in their recovery. From treatments for substance abuse, detoxification and reintegration into the community.
It’s crucial to choose the right rehab. Our rehab centres programmes and treatment facilities accommodate all levels of care in inpatient rehab or intensive outpatient treatment programmes. Our services dealing with abuse and mental health are delivered in a step-down manner. Decreasing in intensity as the patient progresses through treatment options for substance abuse.
