Therapies and activities

Each service user has a treatment plan and a weekly therapeutic timetable which can include:

  • Individual and group psychology
  • Counselling for drug and alcohol misuse
  • Anger management
  • Social skills development
  • Daily living skills development
  • Healthy living
  • IT skills training
  • Education and vocational development
  • Group games and activities

The model of treatment is based on the principles of the recovery model including psychological therapies, occupational therapy, social therapy, physical healthcare and medication.

Staff are trained to provide a pattern of care that continuously challenges maladaptive patterns of behaviour and provides ongoing opportunities to learn and try out more adaptive courses of action and we use the myPath framework to focus interventions towards a service user’s future life outside hospital.
