Service delivery model

The Ley Community is an addictions Therapeutic Community recovery model residential rehab for men and women.

A registered Charity. We have delivered our recovery programme for over 44 years and have an extensive recovery community in Oxfordshire and beyond so we know we have the experience, skills, resources and commitment to deliver the recovery agenda.

Our recovery programme is a staged progression enabling residents to take on increased levels of responsibility for the running of the community, learning and acquiring new skills, understanding about ‘right living’ and improving in confidence and self-esteem. Detox – drugs only – methadone or Buprenorphine over 4 weeks unless otherwise agreed by the GP and client.

  • Primary – Phase One: Stages 1, 2 and 3 – up to 26 weeks – intensive structured therapy and education involves daily engagement in a range of therapeutic activities; Therapeutic Community Concepts, key working and group work using a range of therapeutic intervention techniques CBT, psychosocial intervention. Access to our complementary therapy treatment; Reiki, reflexology, auricular acupuncture.
  • Secondary – Phase Two: Stages 4 & 5 – up to 12 weeks – voluntary work, preparation for full-time employment and independent living, relapse prevention followed by re-integration into the wider community.

Once a resident has secured full-time employment they move into our recovery move on accommodation until they find suitable safe and affordable accommodation in the private rental market and move out with a peer(s) supported by our Aftercare team and are linked into our Recovery Community across Oxfordshire. Experience has shown us that moving out with a peer(s) significantly reduces relapse.

In summary the Ley Community residential recovery TC programme method of intervention promotes motivational change, behaviour management and behaviour shaping – engaging residents in a learning process that involves developing pro-social behaviour – rewarding positive behaviour.
