Virtual Tour of New Oakwood Lodge
Community Members spend their first few weeks in what we call 'the welcome house’ stage while they settle into their new surroundings. They will then move through the phases for the rest of the programme, which lasts between 3 and 6 months. Community Members are responsible for the day-to-day running of the house and support each other throughout the programme with more senior Community Members becoming ‘buddies’ for newcomers.
After completing treatment at the residential, people are supported to move on to our supported housing services or their own accommodation through a structured discharge and aftercare support programme.
Our structured group programme may include a focus on personal and behavioural development interventions, relapse prevention, harm reduction, peer-led groups and meetings, gender support, social and community activities, mutual aid and employability.
Gender-specific support is available throughout the programme.
Progress reports and meetings can be provided to ‘family/significant others in agreement with the Community Members.
We provide a 3 to 6-month programme personalised to each person’s need. To experience the entire benefits of the programme, 6 months is recommended.
