Secondary Treatment for Cheshire


Different treatments and stages of care are offered by different drug and alcohol providers Frequently, a continuum of care benefits individuals struggling with addiction with graduated levels of structure and support. 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. A number of treatment facilities offer supplementary steps which may come in the form of secondary medical care. The level of treatment (primary, secondary and tertiary) is contingent on the patient's needs, financial plans plus other aspects.


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. In this greatly restorative atmosphere, patients learn coping methods, establish self-confidence, determine triggers, and deal with several psychological concerns which often go with dependency.

Involvement by the family is highly recommended.

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

The ongoing treatment gives the client the change to work with therapists who address psychological and emotional issues to allow a better understanding the behaviours that lead to addiction. This phase is helpful although it is less defined compared to primary medical care. It usually takes one to six months and is beneficial for individuals who require help learning to navigate daily life without substances.

The risk of relapse is high at this point of the treatment. 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.
