We view the recovery process as a minimum of 12 months. Although there is no obligation to continue treatment with The BONDS Clinic after successful completion of a detox in ‘Stage 1’, we would always advise a 12 month treatment programme after detox, and we are more than happy to work with any NHS or independent providers to ensure your recovery suits you..
Being addiction free is not just about a quick detox. Our combined experience at The BONDS Clinic has shown us that long term success is best achieved with a treatment programme lasting at least 12 months, which is why the next stages in treatment are so important, even more so if you suffer with:
- Polysubstance misuse – where multiple addictions may occur
- Dual diagnosis – where co-existing mental health disorders such as anxiety, depression, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD), Bipolar disorder and even psychosis may occur
- Underlying chronic pain issues that may have contributed to the misuse of opioid painkillers
