The referral pathway to the programme will depend where you live. At present only those people who live in the Northern or Belfast HSC Trust areas can be referred to Carlisle House. All referrals must come from the Community Addiction Teams, who help you prepare for residential treatment. However, there are a small number of places that are available within the Belfast HSC that are available for direct GP referrals. We also have one private bed available.
If you need help in negotiating access to our service please get in touch.
All applicants will be asked to engage in an initial assessment to explore your needs and decide whether residential treatment is the most appropriate treatment for you.
Your Health Trust will meet the cost of the Programme if you live within the two Trust areas stated above. Should you live outside these Health Trust areas, and wish to access the private bed, you will have to pay the full cost of your treatment. The full cost of the Programme can be obtained on request.
Post Programme Support
Carlisle House recognises the importance therapeutic support post programme. A variety of supports are available after you have completed the programme. However, if someone has engaged in another Residential Treatment Centre, they may be able to attend these Supports. If interested you should ask your Treatment Centre to contact us directly.
