Re-integration is a programme designed to help people relocate from treatment into the community with as little stress as possible. Leaving treatment is a difficult time for clients as for many it will feel like the first time they have had to stand on their own two feet without the use of alcohol and drugs and being taken from a group of people they have been living with for 6 months can be difficult.
Re-integration consists of attending the treatment centre for reducing numbers of days during the first four weeks in the community, for a full therapeutic day. They can also attend for other support, such as extra meals and laundry whilst their benefits are being sorted out, if this is applicable. There are certain rules which need to be adhered to so that the house will continue to run smoothly.
- A Client needs to arrive between 8.20am and 8.30am
- A Client needs to phone the office by 8.30am if they are unable to attend on a day they are expected, so that the kitchen can be informed.
- A Client needs to inform staff of the days they will be attending the following week by Thursday.
- Clients are expected to remain for the full therapeutic day, unless they have an appointment which cannot be changed, in which case they need to inform staff. We need to be aware of all people in the building at any time.
- House rules need to be adhered to whilst attending re-integration.
- Clients will be expected to participate in Therapeutic Duties.
- Clients are expected to demonstrate role modelling behaviour.
- Client need to inform the House Group Leader if they are coming to the house for meals / washing machine, on days different to those stated i.e. Sunday Lunch.
- Overnight and out of town visits need to be cleared with your counsellor.
