Types of Treatment Services Harvey House offers

Treatment services offered at Harvey house include medicated detox where required, and also psychological treatment and support.

The initial stage of treatment for many clients will be a detox. This is process of removing toxic substances with the aid of medication to allow someone to safely withdraw from drugs or alcohol.  An inpatient detox will be provided following an assessment and clients will be supported by nurses and recovery support workers throughout the process.  Nutritional deficiencies and health issues created by the addiction will also be assessed and treated.

Treatment programmes are available to also address the behavioural and psychological side of the dependence. Assessments are carried out at Harvey house social enterprise to ensure the needs of each client are met, and to also assess any complex needs or underlying mental health problems that the addiction may have been concealing.

The structured programme is group based, and engagement and participation in group work is encouraged in order for clients to share their experience of addiction. Harvey house also delivers psycho-social interventions and harm minimisation sessions to its clients in order to increase their awareness of the destructive natures associated with addictive illnesses. This works alongside sessions and activities aimed at improving individuals’ self worth and self esteem, which can otherwise contribute to an addiction continuing.

The Harvey house social enterprise use a number of approaches in their treatment programme. Evidence based therapies are used including Motivational interviewing and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy.

The aim of the therapeutic treatment programme is to build clients’ resilience and empowerment so that they have the skills and motivation in place to continue with their recovery following treatment.

The treatment duration will vary depending on the severity of the addiction and substance being taken.

For detoxification alone, those dependent on alcohol may require between 7-10 days, and for drugs a minimum of 14 days is required to safely detox.  This can be longer or shorter in some cases, and should be based on individual assessment.
