Substance abuse rehabilitation

  • Service

  • Public service

Substance abuse rehabilitation supports abstinence from substance abuse and in addition strengthens life management skills and promotes your functional ability. Peer support is a central part of rehabilitation. We also consider your loved ones.

Rehabilitation that takes place on weekdays and usually in groups, is referred to as daytime rehabilitation or outpatient rehabilitation.

Round-the-clock rehabilitation takes place at the Luoto substance abuse rehabilitation unit. It can be preceded by a shorter treatment programme at Day Centre Aalto.

You can seek outpatient rehabilitation and round-the-clock rehabilitation through the Substance Abuse Outpatient clinic, Youth Station, Jelppi or follow-up rehabilitation of Substance Abuse Services.

The follow-up stages of rehabilitation of substance abuse begin when you are further along in your recovery. Follow-up rehabilitation support is long-lasting and focuses on practical everyday problem-solving and vocational rehabilitation.

Before starting substance abuse rehabilitation, it is important that you have been able to abstain from intoxicants and that any withdrawal symptoms are under control.
