Recovery Plus 10 Feb 2016 Silkworth Charity Group provides help to those who are affected by drug and/or alcohol addiction together with their families and significant others and is the only residential rehabilitation treatment centre in the Channel Islands. Alcohol and drug dependency is particularly prevalent in Jersey where alcohol consumption is twice that of the UK and the second highest in Europe. Excessive use of alcohol and drugs places families and relationships under great stress, so the actual number of people affected through this addiction is multiplied by at least 4 or 5, when you take into account the impact on families and significant others. This is a no-blame illness as nobody sets out to become an alcoholic or drug addict and it is not a problem of morals, social standing, upbringing or will power. It is a very powerful and confusing illness which destroys a person from the core and also those closest to them. Here at Silkworth Charity Group, we recognise and understand the illness and thus provide a complete pathway of treatment to allow long term recovery. We help our clients rebuild relationships, regain their self esteem, and most of all we give them the tools they need to manage their illness and allow long-term recovery. We provide a suite of services to support those that are affected by substance misuse:- l Residential Treatment Programme l Secondary Care through our half way house and individual flats l Home Detox in collaboration with the Drug and Alcohol Service l Community Day Programme l Family Programme l Aftercare Programme. All of the above services are vital in helping individuals together with their families aim towards a goal of being clean and sober. With over 25 years’ local experience in the field, we have touched thousand of people’s lives from the alcoholic /addict to their families and significant others. Referrals into any of our services can be made direct by the person or family member themselves or through the local Health & Social Agencies and General Practitioners. We have spent many years developing and tailoring our services to the needs of our service users, which has resulted in Jersey having a nationally respected suite of services delivered with the client at the centre of everything we do.
