  • Treatment is the building block to long-term recovery
  • The extent differs extensively but can range up to 30-90 days
  • Secondary level is the stage that starts after the Primary treatment

The clients are allowed to continue working closely with a therapist with the help of interim form of treatment as they address the emotional and psychological problems in greater depth and start to recognize the behaviours that lead to dependence.
