Intensive Outpatient Programme (IOP)

Post-detox day treatment

We offer programmes that are flexible, friendly and effective treating drug and alcohol abuse, addictions of all sorts, and some eating disorders. Our ability to customise your care plan to fit you means that every hour spent here is relevant to your specific needs – and we have a 10 year track record of success.

Everyone agrees that effective treatment for addiction and requires a combination of group and individual therapy and here at Charter we add a strong emphasis on self care and mindfulness practice. We believe that if you care about yourself, you are unlikely to continue to hurt yourself and those you love – so this is where we focus.

The groups are a mixture of men and women of all ages and professions, and each day is different. For 4/5 days you be able to have alt least 3 group therapy sessions where some are free flowing so you can talk about whatever you want, and others are about relapse prevention and managing triggers or focussed on self care. Individual therapy sessions take place on the 5th day when you will also be able to have an individual mindfulness or wellbeing session. We may also suggest family or couples therapy as part of your treamtn so that those you love have a chance to join you on your journey of change, clearing all the resentments and misunderstandings in a safe and supported place.

We work closely with each person who comes here to support new ways of behaving and strong patterns of self-care so that they become second nature in the real world too! Experience shows us that day care is very effective as people get well in the context of their own lives and with the people they care for close by. The treatment process can be seamless, which is a relief after all the upset that usually happens before someone asks for help. And leaving treatment is a gentle process too so that we continue to support you over the next year in our well attended Aftercare Programme every Wednesday night, and your loved ones can attend our popular Family Group, so that the changes you (all) make, stick.

We promise to do all we can to make sure that your treatment is the best investment you have ever made, so you get your life back on track.

Its definitely worth you taking  some time to read some of our many testimonials too, or if you prefer we can put you in touch  with past clients so you can actually speak to someone about what is like here. We are here to help.
