What is a WDRP aftercare programme?

United Foundation Ltd will be providing their aftercare services from their offices based in Caldmore, Walsall and therefore providing support to the following south ward constituency areas Caldmore, Pleck and Palfrey. The aftercare programme works with adults aged 18 years and over. Young people may be referred on to the Young Person's Specialist Prevention Service (SPS) for initial assessment if appropriate. It offers structured psychological and social support to those who have completed treatment in community and/or residential based services and for those who have completed treatment in and left prison and are returning to the community. WDRP is built around the need to change old patterns of thinking and behaviour.

Relapse Prevention Program after Treatment:

Recovering drug users are encouraged to attend our free day program, meetings & events, and occupational income generating training schemes.

Family Counselling is available for family members of people with addictions. Counselling focuses on helping family members to understand the addiction, providing information on resources available for people with addictions, and educating the family on addictive behaviour. After treatment, the family counselling introduces the family to the problem of co-dependency and promotes the understanding that substance abuse is a disease and further educates the family in how to communicate with recovering individuals.
