Once that has been completed, there is Secondary Care available in the form of outpatient treatment and Halfway Houses, which help avoid a relapse occurring, which is most prevalent once the recovering individual has been discharged from rehabilitation.
Tertiary Care is also available for those looking to continue their therapy and is highly effective in ensuring that the recovering addicts remain sober.
