Alcohol / Chemical Step Down Programme

A 12 week programme is designed to meet the needs of people who have recently been discharged and in early recovery of drug or alcohol abuse, or for those who are struggling with recovery or relapse.

The Step Down Programme is a 3 month programme designed to meet the needs of those who have been discharged from the inpatient programme and are in early recovery from alcohol and/or substance abuse. It is known that recovery from alcohol and/or drug addiction is a staged and continuous process.

Service users attend this support programme, facilitated by an addiction counsellor one half a day per week for 12 weeks. The Step Down Programme also gives the opportunity to those who have experienced relapse or are struggling with recovery from alcohol and/or drug abuse to re-engage in recovery with the help of professionals.

This is a day patient programme.
