Addictions treated: Alcohol, illegal drugs, prescription medication.
Accommodation: Residential accommodation is a short distance from the day centre. Clients stay in a 14-bed house that is furnished to a high standard and is comfortable and secure. Clients are supported by residential staff, and a housekeeper offers practical support in day-to-day housekeeping duties. The facilities are within easy reach of a wide range of leisure opportunities which the centre makes use of as part of a weekend programme.
Ethos: Cost-effective addiction treatment that works.
Treatment: The programme is developed to create an understanding that addiction is an illness and not a life choice. Clients are educated to deal with their illness in a way that supports them in living a happy, productive life without active addiction. The programme incorporates group and one-to-one counselling, meditation and relaxation classes, cognitive behavioural therapy, lectures and relapse prevention workshops. Clients attend community-based Alcoholics Anonymous and/or Narcotics Anonymous meetings, offering them the chance to meet with others in recovery, and to share experiences and personal journeys.
Staff: This addiction treatment centre is staffed by a team of qualified and experienced counsellors. The staff are dedicated to working closely with you to offer the insight, information, support and feedback that you need to achieve your goal of a happy drug and alcohol-free future.
