ASSESSMENTS and TREATMENT PLANS
Every client starts with a full assessment by one of our trained addiction counsellors. This explores not only the addiction issues that they face but the link that these have had to crime: in many cases they are central to why a client came to prison and/or remains in prison.
From this we develop an individual treatment plan covering initially their remaining time in prison and includes in-cell work, individual therapy sessions and Group sessions which are normally Group Therapy sessions probably on a weekly basis.
This initial treatment plan also includes the client’s participation in the self-help groups available in the individual prison and attendance at those are a compulsory part of each treatment plan. Clients are also encouraged to seek AA/NA sponsors outside of prison.
