Programme details:
Our integrative therapeutic model uses evidence based practice, integrating key approaches demonstrated to be most effective in the treatment of addiction including Twelve step, Reality therapy, CBT, Motivational Interviewing, psycho-social education and solution focussed therapy, as well as holistic therapies such as acupuncture and guided Meditation and Mindfulness.
One-to-one counselling is an integral element of the programme and is used to help with other behavioural issues and specific areas of need inclusive of co-dependency, trauma, abuse, anger management and relationships. The PCP therapeutic community model also empowers our service users to develop vital social skills needed to succeed in recovery.
PCP also offers a family support service and provides family based interventions with the service user when required.
We now have a dynamic secondary programme incorporating Equine-assisted therapy, EMDR, yoga therapy and gym membership.
PCP prides itself on its respect for diversity. With staff from BME and LGBTQ backgrounds both personally and professionally and mindful of the gap of services in this area, PCP actively welcomes clients from all backgrounds and provides dedicated support for the challenges that may arise from clients’ cultural backgrounds and lifestyle choices.
Family support services:
The PCP treatment ethos positively re-enforces the value of family and as such family group therapy and advice and information sessions are provided to all. Weekend day visits are allowed after 4 weeks in treatment and family members may phone the project as and when they feel necessary.
Activities provided for children and families:
Visits are allowed after 4 weeks of treatment and service users are encouraged to start the healing process with families whilst they are in treatment. Service users may take their children out to do 'everyday' family activities whilst on a visit to start to build trust.
Post treatment support:
PCP has a secondary treatment stage which helps service users to identify 'next steps' and look at life beyond rehab. PCP has strong links with local education, employment and training organisations to help provide some insight and experience as to how this may work for an individual. PCP has now developed its secondary stage programme to include holistic and trauma specific therapies such as Equine assisted therapy, EMDR, yoga therapy and gym membership. PCP now provides guaranteed 'move-on' accommodation for those that are homeless or wish to relocate and start a new life.
PCP does weekly telephone check ups with all discharged clients and provides a weekly aftercare session as well as supported housing.

Overdose prevention advice is provided, as well as harm reduction and onward referral back to GP and local CDAT.

Detox programme details:
All service users are assessed by our consultant detox Dr in combination with our full time Registered Nurse. A reduction regime is drawn up and treatment is planned by the Nurse. Daily drug and alcohol testing during detox is carried out as well as monitoring of blood pressure. Daily withdrawal assessments are carried out by the Nurse. Service users start the rehab element of the programme during detox as it is our experience that engaging the mind and body helps to distract from any physical health symptoms of withdrawal and mental craving. We can facilitate methadone reduction from 70ml, Buprenorphine is preferred detox method for opiates, though clients may prefer to do a total methadone reduction. Chlordiazepoxide is used for alcohol withdrawal. We can also facilitate withdrawal from stimulants and benzodiazepines
