Secondary Treatment in and Around Manchester information


Drug and alcohol medical care providers cater to several kinds and phases of treatment. Most of the time, individuals who are having dependency difficulties gain from range of treatment with developing phases of programmes and assistance. A number though fare well with just the initial care which includes inpatient programme or rehab while for some, like those who require additional assistance and longer recuperating time, proceed from initial care to sober living homes (tertiary programmes). An extra stage is offered by some treatment centres in the form of secondary treatment. It is on user wants, financial condition and issues which shows the level of care (primary, secondary, or tertiary).


Inpatient treatment is included in the Primary Treatment, starting with analysis and detox and it is the first phase of recovery process. Once the detox has finished the patient will benefit from intensive counselling, both alone and in groups, to help them understand how addiction affects the mind and the body. In this highly therapeutic atmosphere, clients identify triggers, build confidence, develop coping techniques and address different psychological problems that frequently accompany addiction.

In primary treatment, the most serious side is family involvement in the recovery phase.

  • Long-term recovery is influenced by primary treatment.
  • The extent differs extensively but can range up to 30-90 days
  • Secondary medical care is an in-between stage which starts after fulfilment of primary medical care

This temporary form of medical care enables patients to carry on coordinating directly with a specialist as they tackle psychological and emotional concerns comprehensively and start to trace the behaviours which caused the dependency. This stage is more relaxed than the primary treatment. This stage lasts from 1 to 6 months and will help an individual return to a sober life.

In this treatment phase, there is a high chances of relapse. People slowly start the way toward coming back to day by day schedules. They take in the significance of responsibility and duty and bit by bit recapture more control of their lives. The duration of secondary treatment is one to six months
