Somerset Secondary Treatment information


Different types and levels of care are offered by drug and alcohol treatment providers. Quite often people struggling with addiction really benefit from continuous help with steps they can follow. 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 available in some centres. Individual needs, finances, and other factors are included in defining the level of care (primary, secondary or tertiary).


Primary treatment is the main phase of recuperation, comprising of inpatient treatment or recovery, starts with a careful appraisal and detox. 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 of family members is highly suggested as a vital factor of primary medical care programme.

  • Primary treatment focusses on developing a solid base for prolong the recovery
  • Length of the treatment is between 30 to 90 days
  • After primary treatment, the secondary treatment which is the middle treatment phase starts

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 supportive but somehow less structured than primary treatment. 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. 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 secondary treatment can last from 1 to 6 months.
