Substance Misuse, Dual Diagnosis & Recovery

At Cygnet Lodge Brighouse, we understand that having a history of substance misuse is common and requires assessment and intervention. To support this we have a fully integrated substance misuse service, facilitating 1:1 and group sessions and encouraging the men we support to attend SMART Recovery Meetings. We are also a SMART Recovery partner.

We recognise that:

  • Each individual has unique needs and problems, including those associated with illicit drugs or alcohol
  • One size does not fit all, we will always ensure that the treatment path is responsive to need
  • Service users must have some level of ownership in terms of their treatment
  • A multi-disciplinary approach to treatment ensures all treatment needs are effectively met
  • Recovery is more achievable when effective support mechanisms are in place

We employ our own in-house substance misuse practitioner who provides individual and group support to service users with needs associated with substance misuse.

Treatment Pathways

Service users with a dual diagnosis have unique histories, unique problems and the relationship between their substance misuse and their ill health will be equally unique. We work closely with individuals to build therapeutic relationships which is essential to the formulation of effective treatment paths and engagement from the service user within this.

At Cygnet Lodge Brighouse we are ideally placed to ensure the recovery pathway that individuals embark on is the right one. Using the cycle of change model to identify where each service user is in terms of their readiness to change will determine the treatment pathway that is planned.

This may include the use of the following evidence based treatment options:

  • Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT)
  • Motivational interviewing
  • Risk management
  • Relapse prevention work
  • Good lives model (goal setting)
  • Family Therapy

The above interventions can be facilitated on a one to one level or within a specific group setting.
