RECONNECT Support Group
This support group meets weekly on Wednesday Evenings at 6.30 pm. The Staff at Carlisle House facilitate this Group twice each month. Topics that are relevant to the groups recovery journey are discussed. On the other Wednesday Evenings the group offers peer support, and may arrange social events.
Counselling can continue, up to 12 sessions, following the completion of the Residential Therapeutic Treatment Programme. It offers the opportunity to continue personal work in a safe environment.
Family therapy can continue up to a maximum of 12 sessions. This can be helpful as families seek to support the individual post programme, as well as negoitating the transition and readjusting to the changes that the absence of substances can create.
This can continue of to 12 sessions and offers an alternative to talking therpaies.
This Group meets monthly and is facilitated by our Local Pharmicist, Mental Health Nurse and various other professionals who explore the role of medication in recovery and the benefits of developing a good stress management plan. A range of complementary therpaies are explored.
