At Medway Active Recovery Service, we know that successful treatment starts with being there. Drugs or alcohol can affect many aspects of an individual’s life. We get to know the person, to understand exactly what they need to make positive changes. We work together with a number of local organisations to make sure we deliver an holistic service for our service users. We also work with significant others, those individuals who are supporting someone with substance misuse issues; this is our 5 Steps Carers Group. Group work: Individuals can choose specific interventions according to their needs and where they are within the change process. We offer brief motivational courses, such as Introduction to Change which is designed to provide people with a chance to think about what of change they would like to make, as well as more structured workshops exploring lifestyle changes, problems people might be facing and how they can manage their thoughts, feelings and behaviours in a different way.
We offer the following group work:
1. Introduction to Change
2. Mindfulness based Relapse Prevention 3. Reclaim
4. Recovery Skills
6. Resolution and Alcohol & Wellbeing
Online Support: We also offer guided self-help, online support and a programme to support concerned family members and friends. Our treatment programmes allow us to work effectively with clients who are ready to make changes as well as those who remain ambivalent or lack the confidence about taking the next steps
Harm Reduction Services: We provide to help reduce harm and they include Blood Borne Virus screening, immunisation and support; tailor made needle exchanges, safer injecting paraphernalia; safer injecting information and support; foil to smoke instead of injecting and needle bins. We also facilitate onward referrals to Intuitive Recovery, a group based programme aimed at supporting service users to maintain and develop enhanced coping strategies and relapse prevention tools.
