At Silkworth Lodge, we believe that residential treatment allows an individual an opportunity to focus on themselves without the daily distractions of everyday life for the time that they are with us, therefore we are able to tailor a treatment programme that best suits them and their circumstances utilising our professionally established 4, 8 or 12 week programmes. We are a traditional 12 step Treatment Centre and have been able to support hundreds of people through utilising the 12 step process alongside other therapies that complement our treatment model.
When clients come into treatment at Silkworth, the first thing they are made to feel is at home and that they are part of something special. The one thing they are not made to feel is part of an institution or indeed, just another number. We pride ourselves on the fact that we will always do what we can to make treatment happen for someone if it is possible and they will also be able to be made to feel welcome and safe from the moment they arrive.
A typical day and week in treatment is always extremely well structured with meaning, in order that clients are getting a well-balanced mixture of group work, individual work, and holistic and engaging activities. During the informal assessment process, we will talk about the structure of the days and what individual and group therapy looks like.
