Hebron provides a supportive therapeutic community environment specialising in the treatment of women who require an all female environment in which to recover. As a therapeutic community all aspects of the programme blend together to address past issues/trauma, addiction, social skills and life skills in order to equip for an abstinent lifestyle.
Our house has a history of working with a particularly vulnerable client group. The environment and approach to treatment at Hebron House is conducive to working with women who may have a mental health dual diagnosis. As a small all female unit which embraces one to one counselling as well as the therapeutic group, we are used to addressing issues such as sexual, emotional or physical abuse and eating disorders, in addition to the primary presentation of addiction. Each application from a dual diagnosis client will be carefully considered. A client should be currently stable on her medication, and the medication should not significantly impair the client’s responses or ability to take part fully in the daily programme. The client should primarily be dealing with her addiction. If the mental health problem is primary we may not be able to offer a placement.
