With thanks to the Centre for Social Justice, I’ll be with Acorn Treatment in Manchester for a few days, learning about their treatment and housing programme for drug and alcohol users. From their site:
Acorn Treatment and Housing (formally ADAS) has been a successful treatment provider for over 13 years.
Oak House, our first project, opened in Stockport in 1997 as a day centre offering treatment to individuals and their families affected by addiction. Since opening, we have treated hundreds of drug & alcohol users and assisted them in achieving abstinence. Our family programme compliments primary treatment and helps relatives cope with the damage that has been caused by addiction. Acorn Treatment addresses the whole problem whilst recognising addiction as being primarily based in the mind. We have a team of highly trained counsellors offering a range of professional therapies.
I’ll blog about it when I return.
