Treatment & Addiction Services

Treatment Programme

Youth Support Treatment programmes cater for a variety of personal, emotional, psychological and behavioural problems on both an individual and family based approach.

We specialise in tailor made programs for young people suffering from a variety of difficulties including substance abuse and alcohol problems, eating disorders, the consequences of abuse (sexual and physical), behavioural disorders and emotional difficulties.

Our residential units are run on the basis of a therapeutic community and residents may stay for a course of treatment or on a longer term basis for extended support and help. We provide treatment, therapy, general care and support and an educational programme – all individually planned according to each person’s needs.

Although work is centred on the individual – we believe that family work or work with partners and close friends is also very important. These key individuals are part of the environment into which patients re-enter on discharge from the unit and need to be included in a successful programme.

Patients and clients are accepted from a variety of agencies including self referral although most are referred by the health service or social services. We accept both National Health and private referrals. We have no age limit or geographical limit for our referrals – patients come from all parts of the United Kingdom and from abroad – Our International links are strong. Some patients or their families prefer to be treated at a distance from their local community – we cater for visiting families who may be involved in the treatment programme or may arrange staying visits. Throughout the treatment process close liason is maintained with the referring agency and with the family doctor and local services.

Our programmes provide a variety of approaches and activities. The timetable is varied and the programme intense. Individual , group and project work alternates with physical activities, practical tasks and education or work experience according to the needs and wishes of the client.
