Complete Withdrawal & Partial Withdrawal

Precondition
Clients with their main place of residence in Vienna have the opportunity for an inpatient physical partial or complete withdrawal in the Ma­ri­en­hof specialist hospital

Duration

  • Partial or complete withdrawal from alcohol –  approx. 14 days
  • Partial or complete withdrawal from illegal substances – up to 8 weeks

A necessary further therapy/rehabilitation can be planned on site following the complete or partial withdrawal, as withdrawal is always followed by at least a short inpatient module (1 to 2 months) or a longer inpatient or outpatient module (3, 6, 12 months).

Objective
With a complete withdrawal the objective is naturally the complete physical withdrawal from legal and/or illegal substances. With partial withdrawal all legal/illegal substances are withdrawn while continuing a substitution substance. The partial or complete withdrawal is always carried out with particular attention to the needs of the individual clients. The basis for this is a general medical and psychiatric anamnesis, which reveals the therapy required.
