Treatment Therapies

We offer a therapeutic programme in accordance with best practice, which is based on both an abstinence based model and a harm reduction approach.

Our programmes are carried out by a skilled professional team that respects dignity while fostering self-worth and supporting the emotional, mental, social, recreational and spiritual developments of each individual.

Through therapy, clients develop an acceptance of unwanted thoughts and/or feelings and work towards identifying and experiencing alternative ways in which to relate and cope with the unpleasant experiences associated with drug/gambling/alcohol use. This helps to disrupt the link between psychological/physical suffering and alcohol/gambling/drug use.

In this mindful context, clients ideally make decisions and choices based on important personal goals and values, rather than on avoidance or control through their destructive behaviour.

The following therapies are incorporated into treatment:

  • Behavioural Therapy

  • Brief Therapy

  • Creative Art

  • Crisis Intervention

  • Education

  • Family Conferences

  • Group Therapy

  • Interagency Conferences

  • Life Skills

  • Meditation

  • Motivational Interviewing

  • One-to-One Counselling

  • Peer Groups

  • Preparation for Independent Living
