Shropshire Secondary Treatment


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. Secondary treatment is the additional treatment phase given by some rehab centres. 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. Clients benefit from intensive one-on-one and group counselling once the substance has left the body, which helps them understand how addiction affects the mind and body. This environment enables the patient to develop coping techniques, confidence building and the ability to identify triggers.

Family support and care givers involvement is considered an essential part of successful treatment.

  • Primary medical care establishes a firm support for lasting recovery
  • 30 to 90 days is the normal cycle of this treatment
  • Secondary treatment is not available at all centres but is a transitional phase completed after the primary phase

The clients are allowed to continue working closely with a therapist with the help of interim form of treatment as they address the emotional and psychological problems in greater depth and start to recognize the behaviours that lead to dependence. This treatment phase is less in order but yet it gives support to their users. It helps the users to manage their daily routine, it has a span of one to six months.

This can be a risky phase for several of those in recovery and the potential for relapse is very likely. Gaining control of their lives is helped through the process of learning to see the importance of responsibility and accountability of their own actions. Secondary medical care most of the time spans 1 to 6 months.

Tertiary Treatment (Sober Living Houses) is required for those people who need help for longer terms because they recover slowly Support is paramount. Sober living houses aren't always "houses", but may consist of apartment, condos, or even residential neighbourhoods of different houses. Residents usually pay a fee to cover room and board and may be expected to pay for their own food.


The goal in a sober living house is to provide safe and peaceful surroundings while individuals adjust to a sober life.


Time Period Is Usually Two To Three Months

Occupants of calm living houses are required to follow specific standards, regularly comprising of a check in time and cooperation in family errands. Calm living homes require more moral obligation than primary or secondary care. Inhabitants are typically allowed to travel without restrictions in the day time however they are required to take up an occupation or enrol in a class. A negative result to a random drug test could have you back in rehab and you will be asked to leave the sober house.
