What to expect:

Addiction rehab inpatient treatment programme

Primary care will be the most intensive part of your treatment process, this will include a medically managed detox which will help to manage the withdrawal process and will safely remove substances from your body. Inpatient treatment also includes 24-hour supervision with medical and addiction professionals, including nursing staff and a medical doctor.

Following the detox process, you will step right into the therapeutic process. Here you will be assessed by a specialist addiction psychiatrist, have access to a trained psychologist, and an occupational therapist, benefit from sessions with addictions counsellors, and start working on your recovery through a variety of treatment modalities which include group therapy, an introduction to 12-step programmes, educational workshops, creative therapy, and so much more.

What are the benefits of long-term rehab?

For those who need more time and space to grow in their recovery and through their treatment process, long-term treatment is ideal. In a safe and calm environment, patients can spend 1-3 months or more recovering emotionally and mentally from their addiction, while being able to do the work they need to in order to develop a deep sense of self-awareness. Long-term rehab treatment can be instrumental in achieving successful long-term sobriety in addicts.

Do I need to go to a halfway house?

If you feel overwhelmed by the thought of jumping right back into your life after rehab, a halfway house might be the best thing for your next step. Moving into a halfway house gives you the opportunity to slowly reintegrate back into society, while still offering you the option to start facing real-world challenges. This provides a safety net throughout your reintegration process.
