Structured Day Programme
New Beginnings has a range of qualified staff who are dedicated to work and support our
Structured Day Programme. Together with the clinical staff they form an integrated multidisciplinary
team which enables us to ensure that all elements of a person’s recovery plan are complementary.
There is a comprehensive timetable activities and groups and all people who are undertaking detoxification are encouraged to participate. This is based on a Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) approach, which explores feelings and beliefs and the consequent behaviour that ensues.
Everyone is allocated an individual key worker who is responsible for facilitating the development of a recovery plan for each person. All key workers are trained in the delivery of a range of psychosocial
interventions and will work on a one-to-one basis with people allocated to them as part of their recovery plan. The key worker can facilitate access to other specialist psychosocial interventions as required.
“It’s the longest I’ve been
sober since the age of 18.” Service user’s quote
Core groups run during the week and are always facilitated by two trained staff members. They explore relationships and communication within the peer group and support individual growth by challenging
destructive and inappropriate behaviours.
Our ‘feelings’ group explores the five basic emotions of fear, love, sadness, anger and joy, and supports people to manage these without the use of substances.
Recovery is made visible to people undergoing detoxification as they can share experiences in groups with others who are further on in their recovery journey attending the Structured Day Programme.
Groups are run on a rolling programme and are open to everyone in the detoxification unit and the Structured Day Programme. An individual timetable of groups and activities is agreed with each person as part of their recovery plan.
