DAY 1 MINDS AT WAR ROAD TRIP – TOM HARRISON HOUSE – MILITARY VETERAN ADDICTION RECOVERY CENTRE – LIVERPOOL -21st DECEMBER
What a fantastic start to this few days away. Britains ONLY veterans only drugs and alcohol rehab….
Veterans in civvie rehab suffer a near 100% failure rate for various reasons… but in Tom Harrison House you will find the complete opposite with a remarkable success rate due to compassionate staff some of whom are veterans themselves that have experienced the same things and have come through the programme themselves also.
The place was very thoughtfully decorated throughout giving a lovely
feeling as you enter. They offer a 12 week residential programme with
two houses off site for residents to stay during the 12 weeks, and
treatment and caring does not stop there either, they have a team that
includes follow up calls on a daily / weeklybasis to see how you are
getting on once you have completed the 12weeks, and you are invited back
to take part in activities as much as you need to stay safe and part of
the recovery family,
Funding for Liverpool based veterans is quick and easy to arrange, but if you’re from outside Liverpool then funding can still be aranged with help from the in house team that will contact your local council to dip into their veterans funding. Sometimes this can be a difficult issue but they tell me that they always get there in the end so if you need help to beat addiction please let us know and we can refer you to the team who are waitng to help you.
We will be bringing you more about THH as we get to know them better.
Tom Harrison House is a specialist facility providing an addiction recovery programme exclusively to military veterans, reservists, serving personnel, and their families.
In meaningful partnership with other agencies, we provide a trauma-informed addiction recovery programme through a “sensory and wellbeing” model of care, support, therapy and education.
The primary programme runs over a 12-week period, and includes a diverse range of recovery-focused activities and therapeutic groups, as well as individual sessions and family work. We also provide supported accommodation for the programme duration in a dedicated recovery house.
Programme elements include personal recovery planning, group work, assignments and reintegration work alongside equine therapy, art, nutrition, physical fitness, yoga and mindfulness. Education and therapies initiate the changes to behaviour and thinking that are required to develop and sustain a life of abstinence-based recovery.
On completion of the primary programme a second stage of continued support is available, providing a stepping stone between primary care and a return to independent living.
Working in close partnership with Mersey Care NHS Trust and The Royal British Legion, we also support clients through pre-admission detoxification and post-programme reintegration.
