Programme content

We use TC Concepts as part of a Recovery Care Plan, for example

  • Onion
  • Oyster
  • Bridge

Our recovery programme is a staged progression enabling clients to take on increased levels of responsibility for the running of the community, learning, acquiring new skills and understanding about ‘right living’, improving in confidence and self-esteem and building recovery capital.

Once a client has secured full-time employment they move into our recovery move on accommodation on site supported by our Aftercare team until they find suitable safe and affordable accommodation and move out with a peer(s). Our Aftercare team organise, activities, events together with our recovery community in and around Oxfordshire as well as encourage hobbies. Experience has shown us that moving out with a peer(s) significantly reduces relapse.
