2nd Phase of Treatment
What is Primary Treatment?
Primary drug and alcohol treatment is the most intense and proven form of rehabilitation. Primary treatment programs are structured in a way where all activities and time are focused on recovery from drug or alcohol addiction or negative behavior. All of our listed centers are leaders in the field of primary treatment of alcohol abuse and drug addiction. These primary treatment programs offer a very structured and individualized program that enables individuals to focus on the root causes of their addictions. They understand that each client is different and has different needs and issues. They also work to address those issues in daily educational groups and with one on one private sessions with a licensed staff member.
The main goal of primary treatment is to help individuals seek out and find the answers that have always eluded them. With highly trained and experienced staff, psychologists, nurses, and therapists, these primary treatment programs have worked together to create an environment that is suited for the recovery process of individuals suffering from drug or alcohol addiction. They also provide the finest setting possible for recovery from addiction. Selecting a fully licensed and accredited treatment center is very important. Complimentary residential programs offer individuals who are suffering from addiction a place where they can fully concentrate on recovery, known as Residential Treatment.
Providing structured, intense, and proven non-12, 12 step or even holistic techniques these primary treatment program allows clients to maximize their time. Residential treatment offers a setting that is more comfortable and friendly than a hospital facility while still offering safety, security and medical care.
