What services do we offer?

Our practitioners provide integrated treatment using Motivational Interviewing techniques and Cognitive Behavioural Integrated Treatment to facilitate change, supporting individuals towards the concept of changing their use of substances.
A clinic is held each Wednesday morning at Harrison House where service users are reviewed by the team’s consultant psychiatrist, along with their key worker. Their circumstances are reviewed and a comprehensive plan is created together.
