What happens after I leave
The BONDS Clinic believe a 12-month treatment plan gives you the best chance of success, whether supported through our team working with other healthcare providers to support you. Before you leave, The BONDS team will help you put a personalised treatment plan in place to support your recovery. We split this into 3 stages:
1) The Detox – 7-14 days
2) Consolidation and relapse prevention – 3 months
3) Relapse Prevention – 9 months
Outpatient follow up consultations with The BONDS team are generally consultant-led with specialised GPs, mental health nurses and therapists with additional therapy sessions usually taking place alongside. Appointment times and frequencies may vary but typically a follow up consultation and therapy session are one hour each and can take place at Pasture House or virtually depending on suitability and preference.
During the first 3 months, we may recommend weekly or fortnightly appointments, but more intensive reviews may be needed. The following 9 months tend to be monthly appointments on average but again this can be tailored accordingly. On-call services can be arranged for more enhanced support with a mixture of team members to suit requirements and identify any issues
