Do you provide treatment for under 18’s?

In 2017 we opened our Young Person’s treatment facility, offering a highly specialised, bespoke treatment programme for young people 15 years of age and over.

Due to the Covid pandemic we took the decision to temporarily close the facility, which has been re-purposed to provide quarantine for Adult clients beginning a programme of Inpatient Detoxification. We hope to once again re-open the service to offer a young person’s specific programme, however it will likely be sometime before we are able to do so. Any relevant announcements regarding the situation will be made through the news section of our website.

In the interim period we are able provide a treatment programme to young people aged 17 and over. Within our team we have members of staff who are experienced in working with young people, including several individuals who previously delivered our young persons programme. We can at present offer a bespoke treatment package tailored to the needs of a young person, addressing needs that may include:

  • Health & wellbeing.
  • Social functioning.
  • Addictive behaviours.
  • Mental health.
  • Childhood traumas.
  • Risk Taking Behaviour.
