Programme details:
Quinton House follows a bio-psycho-social model with an emphasis on relapse prevention. It has a certified advanced relapse prevention specialist who delivers this service. Recovery Capital is part of the programme, which allows for assessing individual needs for

all Service Users. We are an abstinence based 12-Step agency offering treatment to people aged 18-65 requiring treatment for drug and or alcohol misuse in a residential setting.
Family support services:
Families are encouraged to attend family meetings as part of the supportive element of the programme. Involvement by family is vital in the recovery process and we welcome visits and are able to offer family programmes, family conferences and relationship counselling. However, family involvement although very valuable is not obligatory.
Activities provided for children and families:
Service users are responsible for activities with their own children.
Post treatment support:
We have a post treatment, shared house for 5 people and 10 individusl flats, after care groups and 1-1 counselling are ongoing after treatment and are provided as part of the after care programme. After care is deemed to be a vital component of the treatment pathway

Resettlement / after-care services:

Admission and discharge information:
Assessment and admissions:
Prospective clients can come for a one-day visit, or stay overnight where possible, to be assessed by the service's competent staff. The admission process in full may take place over two days due to pressure.
Additional admission services:
Quinton House can conduct telephone assessments at times. Prison assessments can be conducted on the phone or via a home visit, to provide full opportunities to spend time with residents.
Discharge policies:
Our early discharge policy is to either return service users to their own area if it is safe to do so assist them to find accommodation elsewhere. Service users will be discharged for relapsing, violence, smoking in rooms and consistent breaking of house expectations and rules. They may also be assisted to move on to a more appropriate treatment agency, if this is agreed between all parties.
