The Primary-Care Programme is offered to clients who are struggling with substance abuse and addictive behaviour disorders. This programme is overssen by our clinical social worker, Judith Gordon-Drake and is designed to equip clients with the tools and techniques necessary to understand and manage their personal addiction and co-occuring disorders which are treated concurrently by clients’ personal psychiatrists.
The professional team is trained to assist the individual (and their family and support network) in understanding the nature addiction 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.
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 aids sustained recovery and wellness.
