Psychosocial and psychological interventions
Our therapeutic programmes use a range of evidence-based psychosocial and psychological interventions, using asset-based approaches that are focused upon supporting vulnerable people to build their resilience and develop their recovery capital within their local community.
Our psychosocial approaches include Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Contingency Management (CM), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Brief Strategic Family Therapy (BSFT), Couples, Behavioural and Family therapy and psychodynamic psychotherapy.
Our approach is supported by a clear, competency-based framework that aligns and evaluates our workers’ abilities, qualifications and practice against clearly defined and auditable standards.
Specialist treatment pathways
Our healthcare expertise is underpinned by a holistic approach to assessment and care and recovery planning. We deliver specialist treatment pathways that mean packages of care are tailored to individual needs and aspirations. For example, we aim to address the specific needs of people with multiple health issues, including people with COPD, older people, people with a dual diagnosis of mental and physical health needs and pregnant women.
Digital technology enables service users to access treatment and support at a time and place that suits them. All our service users are given access to Breaking Free Online, an online treatment and recovery programme which provides 24-hour, personalised support for people in recovery.
We are also now offering online self-assessment for drugs and alcohol, and we are piloting online referral and Live Chat.
