How can I start relapse treatment at Life Works?

Starting relapse treatment at Life Works is much less daunting and mysterious than you may think. When you call, you will speak with one of our relapse prevention professionals who will discuss your situation and the issues that you are facing . Our staff will then be able to help you in a completely non-judgmental and confidential manner.

 We will ask you a number of questions that will help to assess your needs, in order to recommend the most appropriate relapse prevention plan for you right now. Our admissions team will also be able to address any concerns or queries you may have around treatment.

If you are ready to start your relapse treatment, Life Works is here to help. Please call us at 0800 081 0700 or fill out our contact form.

What will happen when I admit for treatment at Life Works?

If you have not received treatment at Life Works before, we will arrange for you to come in for a comprehensive assessment covering key medical, psychiatric and psychological issues with one of our dedicated primary counsellors.

You will then be introduced to the nursing team who will undertake an initial medical risk assessment of you. It is at this point that you can advise us of any medications you are currently taking including the name of the medication, the dosage and frequency administered, as well as the name of the physician who prescribed the medication.

Once the medical assessment is completed, we will then introduce you to your primary counsellor who will work with you personally throughout your stay with us.

We will also assign a ‘buddy’ to you. Your buddy will show you where things are and help you settle into Life Works.

If you have relapsed, please call us now on 0800 081 0700 or email us for more information to discuss how we can help you continue in your recovery.
