Abstract :

EDAS takes addiction/dependency treatment to a client's home, or a location of their choosing or anywhere in the world. This is called home based or direct treatment. They only work with one client at a time, so they are fully focused to their clients' recovery. EDAS is a group of international professional addiction specialists including psychiatrists, psychologists, psychotherapists, doctors, recovery coaches and alternative practitioners who have many years of experience providing evidence based treatment for substance abuse and all addictions/dependencies. This treatment option is for those that don't wish to enter a residential facility (rehab) for whatever reason; these can include family and/or work commitments, disability, confidentiality, cultural differences, cost etc. It has advantages over residential treatment in that clients usually feel more comfortable in their own environment, are near to their local support networks and can continue their day to day lives without the disruption of having to travel or be away. It is considerably cheaper than most residential and other service providers and gives excellent value for money. Home based treatment can also be more effective and work quicker due to the fact that the therapists are on the spot and available in person to the client 24/7. De-tox is often the first stage for the client, then after helping them understand why he/she is self-medicating, we help them to heal with various therapeutic approaches. We support the client in identifying the changes needed and then putting those into practice in their lives immediately. Therapy and coaching provides a safety net for the clients in their early recovery, which then leads to a strong successful recovery. EDAS is a unique organization as they are with you in every stage of the recovery process. As EDAS professionals are on the spot with their client, they are also able to support those close to them such as their family, friends, colleagues who are often affected by the client´┐Ż??s dependency or substance abuse so support is readily available through education, counseling, information and advice. Our services range from overseeing detoxification, intensive counseling, comprehensive relapse prevention planning, real time recovery coaching and a full aftercare package; all to enable our clients' mental, physical and spiritual wellness.
