The Primary-Care Programme is offered to clients who are struggling with substance abuse and addictive behaviour disorders.
The Secondary-Care Programme is specially tailored for patients who have undergone primary-care treatment. Individuals are required to have acquired some recovery time prior to admission or in the case of relapse and have well-managed mental health conditions.
The programmes are overseen by our clinical social worker, Judith Gordon-Drake and are designed to equip clients with the tools and techniques necessary to understand and manage their personal addiction and co-occurring disorders. The staff are familiar with mental health conditions in relation to substance abuse, but clients are referred to external psychiatrists if required.
The professional team is trained to assist the individual and their family and support network, in understanding the nature substance abuse and developing resources to assist them in sustained, long-term recovery.
The programme is designed to support individuals in developing a personal recovery plan that will empower them to live purposefully following treatment. During their treatment the client is involved in individual therapy with a clinical social worker. Each client also works with a recovery coach to work on their personal post-treatment recovery and wellness plans.
The programme is followed by voluntary attendance at the Recovery Wellness Outpatient Programme which is an 11-month aftercare and maintenance programme. This long-term approach has been developed to ensure that the continuum of care which aids improved treatment outcomes and sustained recovery and wellness.
