Therapeutic community

The Centre runs a flexible structured day programme that consists of a variety of topic related groups designed to support, educate, and stimulate. People develop drug and alcohol problems for several reasons and FRC aims to provide a wide range of services through its day and residential programme. The centre offers a range of specialist counselling services such as family and relationship therapy, couple counselling and a range of topic groups. We also encourage and support the 12-step philosophy within our integrative and psychodynamic approach to addiction. In addition, written assignments are an integral part of the learning process.

Service users preferably should have had a detox and should have some period of abstinence. Some understanding of the 12 step abstinance-based aproach to recovery is helpful so that clients know what to expect and are ready to participate in the programme. We will evaluate each client on an individual basis and previous history of treatment and relevant reports will be essential, our aim is to reach all sectors of the community in particular working with Afro Caribbean and other ethnic minorities acknowledging cultural diversity and its associated issues with substance misuse. Clients with dual diagnosis will be considered via a Risk Assessment and reports from medical experts are essential.

Day Programme - £350 for a week Private Counselling - £40 per hour After Care Programme - variable price
Client assessment begins at 10am after having been referred by social services or other external agencies. Then he/she is introduced to staff and peer group. He/she is invited to participate in a group session. After lunch a formal assessment is conducted by a member of staff, and involves full life history, substance/alcohol abuse and risk assessment. Successful assessments are notified within 24hrs and an admission date agreed. Admissions are on a Monday after an alcohol and drug test; all relevant documentation filled out with admin/keyworker. Induction process and buddy allocated. Client luggage is searched on admission. Residential clients are given room keys, welcome pack, terms and conditions. In the first few weeks clients are encouraged to limit their phone calls and family contacts to reduce distractions.
Prison and Service users out of London may qualify for a telephone assessment. Reports from relevant agencies or medical experts are essential before a decision can be given.
Therapeutic Discharge: A therapeutic discharge is undertaken because the treatment has become counter therapeutic for the service user concerned, e.g. a service user's mental suspension of the treatment due to a custodial sentence. Disciplinary Discharge: A disciplinary discharge may follow the breaking of one or more of the House Rules or after failure to conform to a final contract. Self Discharge: A self discharge occurs when a client decides to leave treatment. Discharge occurs when: -drugs or alcohol are used -a client becomes involved in sexual relations with another client -clients are violent - if clients persistently disrupt their own or others treatment process (this will normally only happen following a system involving verbal and written warnings).
