We operate Wirral’s first recovery-oriented community detox house, which provides a supportive, safe, comfortable and sober environment for people who have experienced serious problems with opiate addiction and now see abstinence as the way forward for them.
We achieve this by providing:
- A comfortable, home-like environment
- A community-based detox managed by Wirral Drug and Alcohol Service
- A residential base for clients attending Keystone, Millstones and Milestones programmes at Wirral Drug and Alcohol Service
- A full needs and risk assessment for each resident
- Individualised, agreed support plans
- Daily community gatherings
- One-to-one work with support worker
- Facilitated access to primary and specialist health services
- Support, advocacy, advice and facilitation to enable people to address issues around mental and physical health, legal and financial concerns
- Opportunities for healthy social activities and away-days
- Introduction and involvement in mutual aid organisations, such as Narcotics Anonymous
- Access to further and ongoing professional care/support
Referrals and Eligibility
We offer supported accommodation to men who are stable on methadone or buprenorphine (subutex) who aim to be drug-free within three to six months.
Referrals are usually taken from a person’s key worker, social worker, doctor or hostel worker; however, people can also self-refer.
