Episode 42 – Advanced Treatment

Some nuggets from this episode

  • Advanced treatment provides a bridge from primary treatment to normal living.
  • Although the client still benefits from a protective and supportive environment, they gain more freedom and privileges as advanced treatment progresses.
  • Advanced treatment can mean remaining in a supportive community for three to six months (or even longer), and this increases the likelihood of long-term recovery from addiction.
