Programme details:
The programme aims to encourage and endorse abstinence during the residential stay through a structured programme of group activities. The philosophy and approach, although eclectic, is based on a therapeutic communities model, cognitive behavioural principles and motivational interviewing techniques. There is an emphasis on shared responsibility by peers and group workers. The programme includes Social And Behavioural Network Therapy, where we work with the client and their support network.
Family support services:
The programme includes some Social and Behavioural Network Therapy. The clients' support networks are invited to attend 'network events' where issues regarding the rehabiltiation programme, the clients' individual programme and aftercare needs are addressed. In addition, the support networks are supported at these events, and links with other forms of support for families and carers are established.
Activities provided for children and families:
Rehabilitation visitor hours are from 6.30pm-9pm weekdays (apart from Thursdays) and 2pm-9pm at weekends.
Detoxification visitor hours are from 6.30pm-9pm every day.
The facilities for visitors are limited. We discourage children from visiting the service due to the nature of the service and limited facilities. We will discuss any individual needs around visitors.
Post treatment support:
The service provides a weekly support meeting for clients who have completed the rehabilitation progamme. 'In Touch' operates weekly on Thursdays from 1 pm.
Clients from the Leeds area are re-integrated to the community-base aftercare services provided by Forward Leeds. This includes prescribing, BRIC services and peer support services. For clients with housing-related problems, specialist housing support can be made available to assist the transition to independent living.
Harm reduction policies for clients leaving the programme early:
Relapse prevention sessions are provided as a part of the programme. Management plans are created with clients with reference as to what to do in the event of them leaving the programme early. We assist all rehab clients in writing a 'letter to self' in the first week of the programme. The letter is self-penned by the client, and is only to be opened by them at the point of potentially dropping out of the programme, and is designed to make them think again about leaving the programme. Referral to community support services is always made available.
Resettlement / after-care services:
Detoxification: Liaison and referral to community support services, including prescribing of relapse prevention medication.

Rehabilitation: Some of our clients are homeless or experiencing tenancy difficulties at the point of admission to the service. The service provides assessment of accommodation need, referral to appropriate housing provider and support through the process of resettlement. The service has strong, well-established links with several housing providers, including 'second-stage' housing.
Clients from the Leeds area are potentially able to access specialist housing support workers who can assist in the rehousing of clients

Admission and discharge information:
Assessment and admissions:
Referrals are accepted from community-based alcohol and drug services by letter, fax or email. Enquiries relating to referrals and admissions can be made by telephone. Assessment for detoxification is a triage assessment, with admissions normally arranged via the telephone. A standard referral form is available. Funding would also need to be agreed prior to admission being arranged.

Assessment for rehabilitation includes a comprehensive client assessment, completed in the community or at the centre, and a financial assessment. Admission is arranged in writing or via the telephone.
Additional admission services:
Potential clients can visit the project prior to admission to meet other clients and staff. Assessments for out of area clients can be conducted over the telephone. Information regarding detoxification and rehabilitation services that we provide are sent out prior to admission.
Discharge policies:
Detoxification: Clients would be discharged for the use of alcohol, use of illicit substances and actions that would be assessed as posing a significant risk to others.

Rehabilitation: On entry to the rehab programme, clients complete an 'Unexpected Events Plan.' This plan details the actions that would occur should their rehab placement breakdown, for example, use of alcohol or illicit substances, including where the client would go to in the immediate aftermath of the incident. In instances where clients have used alcohol or illicit substances, they are required to leave the service until they are free from the substance, and they are then given an opportunity to have their stay reviewed. Clients can be given warnings and clients can be discharged for breaking a condition of their rehab agreement, including alcohol and illicit drug use. Details of this are included in the 'Expectations of Treatment', which are gone through with clients on admission.
