Aimed at participants aiming to make a significant change in their recovery. The overall aim of this programme is to introduce participants to strategies to engage in harm Reduction, to reduce illegal drug use, and to stabilise on prescribed medication only. Participants also take part in daily scheduled therapeutic vocational and formal education workshops. The stabilisation group is generally for one year in duration. Once stability has been achieved, participants access a detoxification support group, which prepares the participant for detoxification in year 2 through group work and individual one to one support All participants sign up for and follow the Community Detox Protocols

Progression Group

Primarily aimed at persons coming from the stabilisation group, the progression group has, as its focus, the move towards a drug free lifestyle. There are increased therapeutic group and individual supports, with the aim of preparing the participant to enter a detoxification facility or Therapeutic Community or completing the detox in the community itself. The Detox element is medically supervised by the participants own GP or clinic and the assigned Key-Worker

Entrance to the Drug Free group is through graduation from the Stabilisation and detoxification group or by referral from other Detox/ Therapeutic programmes. The emphasis in this group is on increased self-reliance and utilising resources effectively in remaining drug free. There is increased emphasis on support structures outside of Casadh and developing structured plans and activities that promote a healthy and drug-free lifestyle. There is a focus on therapeutic modules and rehabilitation training, including Art, Drama, Film making, Computers, and Return to Work. Participants are expected to make an individual effort to source external training and education so that an effective exit plan is developed. The key aim of the drug free programm e is to allow participants engage in healthy structured activity and to adjust and reintegrate into society

When there’s addiction in the family unit, whether it is a child, sibling or parent, everyone suffers. Often the addiction or intimidation becomes so crippling that family members suffer as much as the addict from its effects. The Family support service was set up to create a safe, confidential and non-judgemental space for family members of drug users to come to share common issues on coping with drug use within the family unit. Family support is generally understood as the provision of services and interventions that support families in carrying out their normal functions. This service is centred on counselling, advice workshops and key working interventions. Family support workers are there to strengthen family members to cope with issues arising from drug use in the family/home. If you are experiencing the effects of addiction in the family, there is help available-Casadh offers a free and confidential service to the local community
