Therapeutic community

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. This leads to semi-independent accommodation with floating support, recovery peer mentor support and vocational education, training and work experience. THOMAS is actively supporting the development of a visible recovery community in Salford.
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 inidviduals 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.

Potential residents will be assessed by the Assessment Co-ordinator either in person or by telephone contact. This assessment incorporates the individuals psychological and emotional needs, a risk management plan, copies of any previous convictions, medical questionnaire and any other information may help the assessment process. The assessment usually lasts for up to one hour. During this process there is opportunity for potential residents to ask any questions they may have about the programme. If after the assessment the person decides that they want to come to THOMAS and the Assessment Co-ordinator has concluded they are suitable to become part of our community, and would benefit from our service, they referral will be discussed at an Admissions Meeting. If Registered Manager is in agreement with the admission a date will be offered, subject to funding being in place by that date. Every resident is allocated their own key worker and a Care Plan is prepared which will be regularly reviewed throughout the programme. THOMAS has a comprehensive case management system which monitors their progress and achievements during their stay.
Prison assessments can be arranged in the North West. Telephone assessments in place for out of areas. Prospective residents can come to the project to look round and be assessed.
We will discharge clients who: 1. Use or bring illegal substances onto the premises. 2. Are violent to staff or other service users or the general public. All clients are given a copy of the care home rules prior to admission and warning will be given for failure to follow the rules. Repeated warnings may lead to discharge.
