Community Detoxification Centre

The first step to recovery is admitting you have a problem. We can’t do that for you but we can help you with every step from there.

The TBRP Community Detoxification service may be the first step on your road to recovery.

All our services are aimed to help individuals maintain an alcohol and drug-free lifestyle by establishing an environment that supports abstinence and recovery.

Many people mistakenly assume that quitting drink or drugs is as simple as not taking them. Unfortunately, the reality is that detoxification can be an intense experience and that without medical intervention and supervision, it can be all too difficult to navigate alone. Without the therapeutic support, people will usually relapse rather than complete the detox process, putting them right back at square one and at continued risk of the dangers caused by ongoing misuse.

In addition, trying to rapidly home detox yourself from alcohol or drugs could have dangerous, even grave consequences.

The TBRP Community Detoxification Centre has expert, experienced staff to manage a safe detox process and we provide a range of therapeutic services to not only help you through your detox but also through the start of your recovery journey and to a new life, free from drugs or alcohol.

What is the Detox Centre?

The Basement Recovery Project Community Detox Centre is a safe, secure, practical and supported residential accommodation for people who have been assessed to be low risk and who wish to participate in a physical withdrawal from alcohol or drugs.

All of our staff members are specifically trained for their work in the Detoxification Centre. The Centre has 24/7 support staff and a detox manager, as well as a team of volunteers, all of whom are in recovery from addiction and at some point in their lives, have been through a detoxification themselves. In addition, we have an out of hours qualified detox nurse for advice and guidance.

TBRP will aim to provide continued support to help you complete your detox programme. Clients will be expected to participate in all therapeutic sessions made available to them. Your care plan will seek to enable both you and us, to best address the needs that were identified through the referral and assessment process.

What can a client can expect?

  • You will have a detox support worker who can arrange one-to-one support sessions with you, but you can ask for support at any time.
  • You will have a Client Contract, which sets out our obligations to you and your responsibilities to us with regard to your support and accommodation.
  • You have a right to privacy, however, random supervised spot checks of your room may be carried out from time to time.
