Primary Treatment

We Do Recover

Primary treatment in addiction recovery is a critical initial phase, usually lasting 21 to 35 days, focused on stabilizing the individual physically and psychologically. This period often involves medically supervised detoxification to manage withdrawal symptoms and achieve physical stability. The treatment includes a mix of individual and group therapy, educational sessions, and possibly medication-assisted treatment, aiming to understand addiction, identify triggers, and develop coping strategies.

Education about addiction’s physical, psychological, and social impacts is a key component, empowering individuals in their recovery. Peer support through group therapy and interactions is also introduced, offering community and understanding. Additionally, primary treatment addresses co-occurring mental health conditions like depression or anxiety.

After primary treatment, the process continues with secondary treatment, outpatient programs, or support groups, and involves creating a comprehensive aftercare plan. Primary treatment includes 24/7 care in a structured environment, providing safety and focus on recovery away from external triggers. Therapeutic interventions during this phase help understand addiction’s root causes and develop healthier coping mechanisms. The duration varies based on individual needs, but it’s important to note that primary treatment is just the beginning of the recovery process.
