Following Primary Treatment at Silkworth Lodge, you have the opportunity to move into our Secondary Residential Treatment facility to help support your transition from intense rehabilitation treatment, into normal living. It is an opportunity to ease yourself back into life with the support of staff and a structured environment so that you can begin to look for work, and permanent accommodation and receive continued peer support whilst doing so.
Accommodation is offered in 2 stages, the first being a communal environment, sharing kitchen and living areas with your own private bedroom and bathroom. The second is a self-catered apartment environment which allows you to experience living more independently but with the support of staff and peers next door.
It is important to acknowledge that Secondary Treatment can be as important as Primary Treatment as it is the early days of recovery that can often be the most challenging. By choosing to continue your treatment in our Secondary facility, you are choosing to strengthen your recovery and ongoing sobriety.
