The 12 Step model that is incorporated into the programme, recognises addiction as a ‘disease’ and promotes recovery based upon spiritual principles. The programme is not affiliated to any religious doctrine; however, clients who have particular religious requirements are supported to continue this whilst in treatment.
The programme also utilizes a Therapeutic Communities approach which supports staff and clients to play an active role in the running of the treatment community. We encourage collective openness and sharing in order to maintain a supportive, therapeutic environment in which individuals can achieve their goals. It is important to take note that the therapeutic processes are not only embedded in the structure, but are heavily guided by the Therapeutic community approach of “community context as method.” This ensures that the very interactions and process within the facility are therapeutic opportunities and are considered as part of the daily treatment plan.
This planner is designed in an open format, to accommodate the intake of new clients to be able to enter the treatment facility and take part in therapeutic groups without missing any sections.
