Meet the Team

A PASSIONATE TEAM – TEAM SILKWORTH COMPRISES OF A HIGHLY SKILLED AND CREDENTIALED TEAM OF ADDICTION EXPERTS WITH YEARS OF EXPERIENCE TREATING THE ILLNESS OF ADDICTION.

The Silkworth team works together to make a real difference in the lives of people affected by addiction. Members of the team bring a wealth of experience from various disciplines to their collective role of carrying out the mission of Silkworth Group.

Silkworth Residential Treatment Centre is led by an internationally qualified Therapeutic Team who are onsite throughout the week, complimented by our 24-hour Support Staff. Our Team is passionate about their work and their extensive experience in addiction, mental health, and trauma ensures those in our care (including community outreach work) are in the best possible hands to make lasting positive change. Our ‘Master Chef’ and Housekeeper work to provide comfort to our clients for the duration of their stay.

Many of the staff are in recovery themselves so they understand first-hand the nature of the disease and how it is best treated.

Silkworth Lodge was founded by Frank Laine MBE in 2002 and recognised in the Queen’s New Year’s Honours list in 2020 for services to the community.

“This is a disease, not a disgrace. When treated as such the outcome is nothing short of miraculous.”

Silkworth Founder, Frank Laine MBE

Sharing time with others in similar situations opens honest discussions. Clear structure of course. Wise and kind guidance and compassion from Wendy. Our understanding helped change our perspective from looking at them to shifting our focus to looking at our behaviours and emotions.
