We have a 3 Stage Accommodation Programme. Stage1 is designed to provide concentrated structure and support. Generally, this will mean a stay of up to 12 weeks in a self-contained apartment in our staffed Support Unit, during that time residents will attend the Change of Lifestyle Programme and are supported and prepared for Stage 2.
Stage 2 properties are self-contained apartments in a block of 18 which are all managed by Alpha House. This provides a “recovery community” with on-call staff available to deal with any problems arising and staff are available at the adjacent Support Unit. A Tailored recovery programme is designed to meet the needs of those in Stage 2.
Stage 3 of the housing programme is a property further out in the community and a recovery programme which included education/training/volunteering or work training. These properties can be taken over independently by the resident if they become employed.
