When there are addiction issues, clients can make use of the specific expertise that MHC has to offer. Our starting point is offering outpatient care, from a demand-oriented and recovery-supporting approach.

For whom?
MHC can treat adults with substance dependence. This may involve problems in daily functioning due to alcohol or drug use, gambling or other behavioural addictions, such as gaming. It may involve clients who feel that they no longer have sufficient control over their own substance use or addictive habits. In addition, MHC offers treatment and counselling for people with long-standing addiction problems, including those associated with serious psychological or psychiatric problems, a mental disability or problems with the law.

Always discuss the complaints with your doctor first and ask for a referral if necessary.

What do we do?
In all cases, MHC can provide tailor-made treatment, varying from a few consultations with a psychologist or a specific course or training, to long-term treatment and support by a case manager and consultations with a psychiatrist. In general, this occurs in three stages:

In the intake phase, the request for help is made clear. This is done in consultation with a practitioner and in some cases along with the psychiatrist. We discuss the reason for your application, any existing diagnoses and what expectations you have of your treatment

In the treatment phase, a treatment plan is drawn up. The treatment plan elaborates on how treatment and supervision will take place. This can vary from consultations with a psychologist to extensive treatment (such as EMDR or CBT) and consultations with a psychiatrist.

In the closing phase, we mainly work on relapse prevention. This means that there is a constructive look at the prevention of relapse.

A referral from a general practitioner is always required for treatment (standard referral letter).
