COMMUNITY ALCOHOL AND DRUG SERVICE

CADS offer a range of services designed to support and empower people who are affected by alcohol or drugs

 

Day Treatment Programme

This is a 12 week Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT) abstinence based treatment programme. Through a comprehensive assessment process we collaboratively create a personalised treatment plan which is continually monitored, evaluated and adjusted as different needs arise. 

Residential Service

We provide a safe, supportive, therapeutic environment for men over 18 years of age recovering from substance use. We follow a total abstinence framework  program providing short-term support, counselling, practical helps, life skills and employment training. We also implement innovative shared-care and resettlement packages which help clients integrate and adjust better into their community. 

Individual Psychotherapy

We offer individual psychotherapy (CBT) with each session lasting fifty minutes. The average duration of a treatment episode is 12 to 15 sessions, though this may vary according to the complexity of the problems presented.

Departure planning, after care and onward referral are part of our structured programme. The development of an appropriate package of after care and support takes place in the final phase of the treatment episode of service users aiming to achieve abstinence. 


Floating Support

People can experience difficulties with alcohol at any stage in their life. Sometimes these difficulties can greatly diminish the independence and quality of our lives. CADS offer a general counselling support service for residents of Brent whose lives have become complicated by the misuse of alcohol.
