Grace House female-only residential service

Grace House is a gender specific service in North London, developed to meet the needs of women who require abstinence-based residential substance misuse treatment in a safe and therapeutic environment.

Delivered by an all-female team of Therapeutic Workers, with a high staff:client ratio, our programme has been developed
using evidence and best practice around trauma-informed approaches to care, with staff trained to recognise and respond sensitively to the effects of trauma.

Women accessing our service may have experienced multiple disadvantage and will typically have a range of needs. We deliver a highly personalised and holistic package of support, and can offer access to specialist therapeutic intervention where this is required.

This has included:
• Specialist one-to-one support for eating disorders
• Parenting support

Provides for: Women aged 18 or over who require abstinence-based residential treatment. We operate no blanket exclusions: all applicants are assessed on a case-by-case basis.

Treatment programme: All clients have weekly one-to-one sessions with their Therapeutic Worker, where they develop a structured care plan and begin to address underlying and inter-related needs, including mental and physical health, relationships and causes and consequences of substance misuse.

Our rolling group programme incorporates a range of sessions aimed at supporting recovery from trauma as well as accredited workshops, and therapeutic activities, including:

• Freedom Programme – accredited domestic violence programme
• Understanding and managing emotions, anxiety, depression and anger
• Healing meditation
• Understanding trauma and the body
• Healthy relationships and co-dependency
• Identity and self-esteem

We take a holistic, trauma-informed approach, addressing physical and mental wellbeing through a range of health and wellbeing activities,including regular yoga and women’s only gym sessions and participation in local conservation projects.
