Drug Counselling Melbourne

The Hader Clinic’s residential drug rehabilitation service runs for between 30 and 90 days and has been helping people recover from substance abuse since 1997.  We have a committed team of skilled staff who provide a fully supervised program of recovery which addresses all aspects of addiction; physical, emotional, psychological, social and spiritual.

The first step in rehab for drugs is to stop taking the substance that has become harmful whether this is drugs, alcohol or both. Moreover, The Hader Clinic offers a medicated withdrawal, supervised by qualified staff which seeks to keep clients as comfortable as possible. Before admission we conduct a comprehensive assessment so this part of the process is as smooth as possible.

Parallel with any detox, our drug rehabilitation service implements a personalised plan for each client, which is frequently reviewed by support staff. This uses the best treatment modalities according to each person’s individual and emerging needs.

Comorbidity/Dual Diagnosis and Drug Addiction

The Hader Clinic’s staff have years of drug rehabilitation experience dealing with the complex area of comorbidity or dual diagnosis. In the case of drug addiction, this means that the client is suffering from both addiction problems and other mental health issues.

It is estimated that over 50% of people entering drug rehabilitation have a dual diagnosis whether they realise this or not. Often using drugs is a self-medicating solution and others who have been professionally diagnosed frequently find that their symptoms are alleviated just by stopping the use of drugs. Whatever the circumstances, our rehab for drugs proffers a practical, evidence based solution supported by experienced drug rehabilitation staff.  

As a dual diagnosis rehab, The Hader Clinic, utilises the latest approaches in psychotherapy and counselling which are proven to assist recovery from a wide range of mental health issues. Likewise, these are delivered by clinical psychologists and clients will receive regular psychiatric review from our clinical team.
