Cygnet Acer Clinic is a 28 bed rehabilitation service providing assessment, treatment and rehabilitation for women with personality disorder and complex needs. Rehabilitation is provided in a therapeutic environment, with a level of security matched to individual needs. The aim of the treatment, rehabilitation and re-socialisation programme is to prepare the people in our care either for transfer to conditions of lesser security, or for a life in the community. “I have been discharged for nearly four months now and I am doing so much better than I ever thought I would. And this is because of the staff at Acer believing in me when I didn’t. The skills I have learnt help me everyday. Acer has given me my life back and for that I will be forever grateful!!”Service user, Cygnet Acer Clinic Read more reviews and compliments Our dedicated clinical teams provide a multi-disciplinary approach to rehabilitation.
