Intoxicant rehabilitation at Tervalampi

The Tervalampi Villa Rehabilitation Centre offers communal rehabilitation, which is carried out in a work and group activity community, everyday activity rehabilitation community, and women's and men's communities. The rehabilitation period lasts six weeks.

The rehabilitation includes participation in the operation of the community through meetings, groups, and managing individual areas of responsibility. The communities maintain the cleanliness of the premises by themselves, and responsibilities are decided upon once a week.

During the institutional rehabilitation, customers participate in the weekly events of the small communities, which ensures that daily life in the institution is well-planned and structured. In addition, the individual needs of each rehabilitee are considered whenever possible. Towards the end of the institutional period, the customer is instructed to increase the amount of city environment training and make plans for his or her further rehabilitation back in the city. Participation in NA, AA, and other peer support groups is also possible during rehabilitation at Tervalampi.

The staff at the rehabilitation centre include professionals from various fields, such as social workers and social care workers, rehabilitation instructors, nurses and practical nurses, a psychologist, a psychotherapist, and an occupational therapist. In addition to the social and health care staff, the work activities are guided by facility services and meal services staff. The rehabilitation centre offers weekly medical services.

The service can be sought via substance abuse outpatient clinics or a Youth Station.

The Ministry of Social Affairs and Health confirms the maximum customer fee every year.
