The first stage of recovery will usually involve in-rolement into a clinic (Recommended). This could be a day clinic or full time in-house clinic. Addiction recovery is a life long journey and aftercare supervision is recommended to all individuals recovering from addiction.

It is recommended that all staff working in a rehabilitation environment have some form of life experience or training around addiction. Psychological knowledge of personnel cognitive function and the use of short term medication can be useful. Addiction is generally treated as a psychiatric and psychological problem.

Psychology is the scientific study of people, the mind and behavior. It is both a thriving academic discipline and a vital professional practice. Psychologists and psychological research have a big impact on all aspects of public life, particularly in areas such as education, health, the economy, industry and social justice. (BPS)


The professional practice of behavior analysis is the fourth domain of behavior analysis. The other three are behaviorism, experimental analysis of behavior, and applied behavior analysis. The professional practice of behavior analysis is the delivery of interventions to consumers that are guided by the principles of behaviorism, and the research of both the experimental analysis of behavior and applied behavior analysis. Out of the four domains, professional practice seeks maximum precision to change behavior most effectively in specific instances. The professional practice of behavior analysis ranges from treatment of autism and developmentally disabled individuals to behavioral coaching and behavioral psychotherapy. In addition to treatment of mental health problems and corrections, the professional practice of behavior analysis includes organizational behavioral management, behavioral safety, and even maintaining the behavioral health of astronauts while within and beyond earth’s orbit. The professional practice of behavior analysis is a hybrid discipline with specific influences coming from counseling, psychology, education, special education, communication disorders, physical therapy, and criminal justice. As a discipline it has its own conferences, organizations, certification process, and awards. (Wikipedia)

There are many different methods of therapy and some clinics employ staff with different training and qualification. Our opinion at Rehab Guide is as long as the training has been approved and the methods have proven to be successful over time we will then recommend our clients to the clinics.
