About this service
Longreach provides services to women who have undergone detox in a medical setting but who, for whatever reason (which may include history of sexual and physical abuse), would prefer to engage in treatment in an all-female environment. Women who choose to come to Longreach may also need time to address underlying difficulties with self-esteem, body image, relationship building, dependence on men, health and sexual issues, food issues, employment, parenting, etc. Much work goes into repairing relationships between mothers and their children, and children can visit for stays of up to seven nights.
Longreach operates along the lines of a therapeutic community, acknowledging and promoting the importance of mutual support as a vehicle for sustained recovery. Our programme is designed to offer a balance between therapeutic groups, other group activities, individual therapy sessions and individual assignments. We provide a place of safety and clear structure, within which you can address your own particular difficulties at a pace appropriate to your needs and recovery goals.
Service users are offered the opportunity to get involved in a life and social skills programme, which, depending on some seasonal variations, includes workshops, relaxation training, acupuncture, arts and crafts, sailing, gym, karate, Tai Chi, complementary therapies, gardening, and other activities.
If self referring, charges will apply. Please see website for further information or contact the admissions team on 01752 797 102.
