What happens after I leave?

The BONDS Clinic understand that a detox is the first step to getting back to life. Your care after detox is arguably just as important as the initial detox, since the few weeks and months after detox are the most vulnerable and carry the highest risk of relapse. Therefore, a comprehensive plan to stay abstinent is what we strongly recommend. Thinking about triggers in our personalities, mental health, home environment, family interactions, workplace, and our social circle is crucial to success.

At The Bonds Clinic, we will work with you to design a personalised treatment plan for relapse prevention, so that it works for you.

Alongside any discussions about your treatment options which may include a range of interventions such as treating any mental health disorder or Naltrexone therapy, our experienced team can also provide specialised and solution-focused talking therapies and work with you to build the toolkit you need to get back control.

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

Consolidation & Relapse Prevention

Consolidation & Relapse Prevention

After a successful detox, we encourage our patients to undertake a Consolidation and Relapse Prevention programme. At The BONDS Clinic, we see this as a 12-month programme tailored to you to ensure we provide the best support that we can for your recovery.

Our programme consists of various options depending on your requirements, for example Dual Diagnosis if you have a mental health disorder as well as an addiction, therapy and Naltrexone therapy. These options are carefully considered within your Consolidation plan and implemented within your Relapse Prevention programme. Your recovery to getting back to life is closer than you think.
