Cygnet Lodge Brighouse can support up to 21 men in a relaxed, calm and homely environment. The focus is on helping individuals increase their independence wherever possible through work and education, as well as social and leisure facilities, offering a slower stream rehabilitation service where needed.
As part of the service, we provide a three-bed apartment, Rastrick View. This helps support men to prepare effectively for discharge by further encouraging independence while maintaining the inputs of the service and staff support where needed. It also provides the chance to evaluate what support a person may need on leaving the service, which can help prevent readmissions and support positive discharges.
We are a SMART Recovery Partner
Supporting men with a diagnosis of mental illness and associated substance misuse
We encourage the men we support to set their own goals and work collaboratively to achieve success. We provide a variety of structured activities, which are led by a wide range of experienced, multi-disciplinary professionals. These include psychiatrists, associate specialists, mental health nurses, psychologists, occupational therapists, an activities co-ordinator and an art therapist.
