Helping substance misusers to live in abstinent recovery
The ODAAT programme (One Day At A Time) helps substance misusers to live in abstinent recovery.
We provide a holistic approach to their recovery that includes a combination of therapies over six months. These include psychotherapy, one-on-one and group counselling, anger management, access to sport, yoga, peer support, life skills training, family therapy and work experience – in preparation for settled independent living.
We have a capacity for 11 undergraduates in our first and second stages. When completing the six-month residential programme, graduates have the option to enter our third stage supported houses, for which our capacity is 12 beds.
Graduates can also take advantage of ongoing aftercare. Some also access work-training programmes that can lead to NVQs in Health and Social Care at level 2 or 3. Others stay in our supported third stage housing until they build other careers, and safe social networks to move into their own accommodation.
80% of entrants last year (2019/20) successfully graduated.
