Our clients spend Monday to Friday 9am to 4pm, and Saturday 9am to 2pm at our beautiful treatment / recovery centre. During your time at the recovery centre you will attend specialised recovery groups and therapy groups, one to one therapy and key-working sessions, as well as complimentary therapies. Pretty much all groups and recovery processes that would be considered work would happen at the recovery centre.
The recovery centre has its own coffee shop / canteen which is called ‘The Meeting Place’ and is loved by many people because of the vibrant recovery energy it emits. You can help yourself to hot drinks and snacks in between groups and other activities. Freshly made food such as sandwiches and salads are made daily. Soups, toasted sandwiches and other snacks are also available. An ever-so comfortable chill out room is attached to the coffee shop / canteen, and contains several couches to relax on during break times.
The outside area of the centre has Cafe style seating and smoking area. The centre is a two minute walk from Lowestoft town centre, as well as a two minute walk from Lowestoft’s beautiful sea front. Most clients choose to walk along the sea front to the centre from the houses in the morning and home again in the evening (after detox is completed of course). We do have a private mini-bus to transport clients to and from the centre for those clients that prefer this mode of transport. On Tuesday afternoon’s clients go on a positive recreational activity, such as: go-carting, canoeing, walking, bowling, and visiting places of interest and much more.
The recovery centre also has an art room (and an art therapist), plus several computers with internet access for client use. The centre is fully staffed all day with managers, therapists, and support and admin staff. The centre is designed to be relaxing and enjoyable to allow clients to focus fully on their treatment. It’s a difficult time in people’s life our goal is to make it as pleasant and effective as possible.
