The Recovery Project is a 25 bed residential drug and alcohol service for single homeless adults with drug and/or alcohol addictions. The project is registered with the Care Quality Commission and staffed 24 hrs a day with a minimum of two staff on duty at any given time, providing intensive support for up to 2 years. All residents have their own room, with nurse call facilities in each room, with the use of shared communal areas including lounges, a large commercial style kitchen and a small gym.

The vast majority of clients for the service are referred through our Day Centre and comprehensively assessed by project staff and our multi disciplinary team. As part of this assessment individual risk assessments and support plans are negotiated and agreed with clients before commencing residency at the project. To access the service clients need to be motivated to make positive life changes in the absence of addiction and be committed to engage positively with the service. The project adopts both harm minimisation and abstinence based interventions with a community reinforcement approach being adopted to support the re-integration of marginalised individuals back into the community.

The service aims to support individuals to overcome their addictions and to live independent lives through the use of psycho-social interventions and practical responses. Included within this is intensive housing management to ensure that the service safe and secure. Residents at the project are regularly tested for drug and alcohol use in line with their individual support plans.

At the end of their treatment journey residents are supported into independent accommodation in the community or housed in one of WCHP’s community houses. All residents moving on are offered comprehensive support from our accommodation support workers for as long as they need it.
