Working method

At Pret in herstel, we work according to the 8-phase model. This gives you insight into our guidance. It prevents ambiguities, as you always know exactly where you stand.

During 8 phases, we offer you the personal support that you need. This is always tailored to 11 areas of life, which recur throughout the programme.


The 8-phase model

With our 8-phase model, you go through the following steps:

  1. Registration
  2. Intake
  3. Inflow/Start
  4. Analysis
  5. Planning
  6. Implementation
  7. Evaluation
  8. Outflow

During each phase, we determine the goals, the specific work and the tools needed to achieve them. You do this together with your counsellor, for individually tailored guidance.

Attention for 11 areas of life

Our 8-phase model is based on 11 living areas. In this way, we work in a people-oriented rather than a problem-oriented way. These are the living areas we use:

  1. Recovery
    According to the 12-step Minnesota model, we work on your recovery every day. This way we build on self-reliance, so that even without our care you can rely on a healthy recovery system.
  2. Housing
    Together with you, we examine what the after-care programme could look like. We will assist you in finding housing so that you can live comfortably there (possibly with ambulatory care).
    Please note: we will ask you to provide an exit address upon arrival. In case of abuse or use of drugs and in case of aggression, you leave for the outflow address. We apply a zero-tolerance policy in order to keep it as pleasant as possible for others.
  3. Day care
    Our range of daytime activities helps you recover. Of course, we offer all kinds of possibilities and we will be happy to tailor these to your needs, together with you.
  4. Finances
    Together we will map out your finances and put them in order, if necessary. You will receive support from a budget coach.
  5. Physical health
    To the extent possible, we will support you in restoring your physical health. If necessary, we will call in our partners who can help.
  6. Mental Health
    We organise weekly groups and workshops. In addition, personal counselling is available. If you have an open attitude, we will help you with your underlying problems.
  7. Daily activities
    From day one, we will support you with household tasks, such as laundry and cooking. This way, we make sure you get the hang of it before you leave.
  8. Domestic relations
    We encourage you to get to know the others around you. Perhaps you will make the friendship of a lifetime, or at least have a few others around you who understand you.
  9. Social network
    From the support system, we encourage building a social network. Our counsellors have followed a neighbourhood education, so they can help you with this.
  10. Social Participation
    We help you to find a place in society again in which you can develop yourself. Together, we discuss your goals. We look for work, build a support system and help you stay clean.
  11. Legal/justice
    If necessary, we look into the possibilities of a legal procedure. To this end, we cooperate with various law firms.
