Recovery Programmes

Within a safe, structured and caring setting away from the influence of alcohol our eclectic care philosophy encourages the discovery of the positive aspects of character that can help to restore individual self-esteem and confidence.
 

Francis House offers two Recovery Programmes. These two programmes allow for varying lengths of placement and levels of intervention.  Through both programmes the aim is for clients to abstain from alcohol whilst engaging in a successful recovery; which intern helps the client to gain a healthier independence of living away from the need for alcohol.

Alcohol Dependant

The Alcohol Dependent Programme is tailored for men with alcohol dependence. This placement is for a minimum of 12 weeks and the client must have been through a supervised detox prior to admission. Within the 12 weeks the client will have access to all facilities and activities, be assigned a key worker, attend weekday discussion groups, work with a personal trainer to create a bespoke exercise programme, have one to one counselling and meetings with Care staff to complete a full care plan, relapse prevention plan and in the last month a discharge plan to help with integration back into the community. *
