Residential Programs

Some people will benefit from a structured residential programme, the average length of which is 6-12 weeks, but can be up to one year.

Residential treatment is suited to people who experience severe physical, emotional and social problems associated with alcohol or other drug misuse. Being able to get away from the everyday stresses of life in a safe, caring, supported environment where people are able to work through drug or alcohol issues with the help of experienced specialists, can be very beneficial.

These programmes are usually abstinence based, which means that people who go to these services are asked to cease alcohol and other drug use for the duration of their treatment programme with the aim that they will continue to live this way after the programme is completed.
