It is widely acknowledged and evidenced that the longer a person engages in structured addiction treatment, the better the long term outcome will be. The aim of PCP’s secondary treatment programme is to help you to build on the foundations of your primary treatment and allow you the opportunity to independently explore the next steps in your life, whilst still having the support of the counselling team.
Despite the strong element of independence and personal responsibility within the primary treatment programme, life after the structure and intensity of residential rehab can sometimes be difficult to adapt to. In secondary treatment you will be supported to have more freedom and independence which should help bridge the gap to normal living.
In collaboration with your focal counsellor and the secondary treatment coordinator you will devise your own timetable to incorporate a combination of complementary therapies and re-integration opportunities to give you the confidence and skills required to become a participating member of society. It will also help you with the transition from treatment back into the real world, whether this be back at home or as part of our third stage supported housing programme.
Complementary therapies and activities include Equine Assisted Therapy (EAP), EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprogramming), Yoga therapy, Gym membership and EFT (Emotional Freedom Techniques).
Secondary clients are encouraged to participate in voluntary work and education placements to enhance employability prospects and increase confidence. Residents are also allowed to have extended weekend visits or weekends at home to support the rebuilding of personal and family relationships.
