THOMAS offers a full treatment and recovery journey for both men and women. In Salford we operate separate Residential Rehabilitation projects for men and for women.
Family interventions. ACHIEVE partnership working with early break. THOMAS also offer in -house support facilitated by support team.
Weekend visit and family meetings. THOMAS also offer family support sessions.
THOMAS’ work does not stop when someone completes a programme or leaves a project we deliver.
We actively support the recovery community, participating and organising recovery activities and social events, encouraging informal networking and mutual support and providing a safety net for former service users who are struggling with their recovery.
We encourage people who have successfully completed our programmes to volunteer as a way of sustaining their recovery and making a positive contribution to the local community.
We encourage members of the recovery community to continue to make a positive contribution to their local communities by volunteering with ourselves or local community groups.
We provide training, support and supervision for our mentors and volunteers. Some of our former mentors have gone onto find paid employment with THOMAS or other local services.
THOMAS relies on the generous support of many volunteers and mentors. We also welcome volunteers from the wider Salford community. Whether someone is retired, seeking work or interested in finding out more about our work, there are opportunities for volunteers to make a difference to the lives of some of the most vulnerable people in Salford.
Service users will be referred to our community support service in Salford and all agencies involved will be informed.
Our move on accommodation provides semi-independent abstinent living for individuals who have come from residential rehabilitation at THOMAS House. Clients can stay in shared houses, where they learn to live independently, continuing and strengthening their recovery, in a drug and alcohol free environment. As well as the semi-independent housing, clients benefit from all of our recovery support services.
We have a social enterprise project, supported by the Big Lottery Reaching Communities fund to provide practical work experience, accredited learning and training and progress towards employment. Service users gain important experience in furniture and bicycle restoration and refurbishment.
Service users agree to remain abstinent and follow the strict rules which are enforced. This in recognition of their vulnerability and to protect other residents.
The organisation works in partnership with ACHIEVE and the community mental health team to offer client the best support possible.
