Medical counselling/therapy/rehabilitation
In the medical/psychiatric field the main emphasis is on the optimum medical treatment and dosage for the clients. This is particularly important in outpatient therapy, as physical and psychological stabilisation represents the basis of psycho-social rehabilitation.

Psy­cho­the­ra­py, clinical-health psychology
Clinical-health psychological or psychotherapeutic work focuses primarily on supportive elements. Long-term psychotherapy or clinical-health psychological therapy/rehabilitation is desirable and possible.

Social work, occupational therapy
Social work in the Grüner Kreis is at the intersection between the individual and the environment/society. It is dedicated to the social integration of clients in the fields of finding housing, managing debts and finding work and is carried out by our social workers. This work is supported by social pedagogues, addiction counsellors, and also by members of the therapeutic team.
If the client is in work or education, the aim is to maintain this. Here it is primarily a question of measures to keep people in work. With job-seekers or unemployed clients they receive support in order to rejoin the labour market as quickly as possible. Cooperation with schools, training agencies, WIFI (Institute for Economic Development), BFI (Vocational Training Institute), PVA, WGKK, AMS or the Wie­ner Be­rufs­bör­se supports this.

Active leisure time, sport, art, creativity
Through cooperation with other organisations clients are motivated to find active leisure-time pursuits (sport, art, culture, creativity).

As far as possible relatives are involved in the ongoing therapy work.

The objective of outpatient therapy/rehabilitation is that clients are occupationally and socially integrated in such a way that they do not require inpatient stabilisation or to facilitate a mentored analysis of their addiction for clients after inpatient therapy/rehabilitation. In the course of therapy/rehabilitation the clients should be in the position to be able to lead a stable life and to have the necessary assistance contacts and resources at hand.
