Primary Treatment Placement vs. Extended Care Treatment Placement

Extended Care Treatment

Primary treatment placement and extended care treatment placement are two of the services we offer at Clarity Family Consulting. It’s important to understand the differences between these two types of treatment placement. In this article, we are going to talk about primary treatment placement vs. extended care treatment placement. We’ll discuss the differences between the two and when each can be effective.

Primary Treatment Placement

Primary treatment placement refers to any short-term medical care that’s necessary for an individual struggling with substance use disorder. This often includes medically-supervised detox – to ensure that an addict safely sobers up, rather than going cold turkey which can be extremely dangerous for some individuals.

Extended Care Treatment Placement

Extended care treatment is (as the name suggests) a more long-term treatment offering for substance abusers. This can include in-patient facilities that give addicts the tools they need to attain sobriety and remain sober for the long-term. These facilities often include individual and group sessions that help a person deal with their underlying issues and develop skills to remain sober once they leave the facility. The length of time an individual stays in an extended care facility varies from several weeks, to six months, to a year for some people. Our team can help you or your loved one find an extended care facility that fits your needs.

Case Management & Clinical Intervention Explained

Clinical Intervention

If you or a loved one is struggling with substance abuse or addiction, there are many treatment options at your disposal. In this article, we are going to explain how case management and clinical intervention work and why they’re beneficial for individuals struggling with addiction.

Case Management

Case management begins with a general phone assessment of the client and family. This assessment includes client’s demographics, history of substance abuse, prior treatment(s), mental health diagnosis, and family dynamics.

Communication with family, client and treatment providers remains consistent before, during and after treatment. Case Management provides accountability to continue on the recovery journey for the client and each family member during the transition out of treatment. Accountability in recovery entails meeting attendance, drug and/or alcohol monitoring, coaching, therapy and implementing the treatment plan provided by the facility. Clarity individualizes this to fit each client and family's needs. For the family, this includes learning appropriate boundaries and coaching throughout the treatment process. We provide referrals to family members, as needed.
