What is Secondary Treatment in Portsmouth


There are many kinds and phases of liquor and alcohol treatments provided by care-takers. Frequently, a continuum of care benefits individuals struggling with addiction with graduated levels of structure and support. Not all people require full on treatment and they do well inpatient treatment or rehab, while others require a longer time to recover in primary care and then onto a house of sobriety. Secondary treatment is the additional treatment phase given by some rehab centres. The level of treatment (primary, secondary and tertiary) is contingent on the patient's needs, financial plans plus other aspects.


Inpatient treatment is included in the Primary Treatment, starting with analysis and detox and it is the first phase of recovery process. 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 highly therapeutic atmosphere, clients identify triggers, build confidence, develop coping techniques and address different psychological problems that frequently accompany addiction.

Involvement by the family is highly recommended.

  • A strong foundation for long-term recovery is built by the primary treatment.
  • Your stay will vary in length from at least 30 days to 90 days
  • Secondary medical care is an in-between stage which starts after fulfilment of primary medical care

Working closely with the therapist is necessary for people during treatment as they give you advice regarding psychological and emotional matters in depth and help you to understand the behaviours that cause addiction. This stage is more relaxed than the primary treatment. Most of the time it spans 1 to 6 months and is beneficial for patients who require assistance in knowing how to live life without drugs.

This phase is a perilous time for some in recuperation and danger of backslide is high. 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. Secondary medical care most of the time spans 1 to 6 months.
