Therapy

An outpatient therapy - after the assumption of costs - be taken by people

  • with substance-related addictions (mostly alcohol, cannabis, medication and mixed consumption) and / or
  • whith pathological gambling
  • with pathological use of electronic media (often also called internet dependency).

We treat eating disorders and other mental disorders if there is an addictional addiction problem.

The therapy can still be applied for and started several after the beginning of abstinence, als addiction disorders often bring about a long risk of relapse.

The therapy can be carried out as exclusively outpatient medical rehabilitation, as outpatient rehabilitation following an outpatient full-day treatment, as outpatient rehabilitation following an inpatient treatment or, under certain conditions, as an inpatient/outpatient or an outpatient full-day/outpatient combination therapy.

Outpatient rehabilitation  usually includes participation in individual and group therapy. It is usually preceded by counselling motivation treatment and therapy preparation. Here, an assessment of indication and clarification of costs is done, abstinence is tried and consolidated, and goals for the therapy are worked out. The treatment includes weekly group an individual conversations. The standard treatment period in our facility is one year, but can be extended up to 1,5 years if necessary.
