Facilities & Accommodation

Ensuite Bedrooms

Oasis Bradford is a 17-bedded detox clinic facility. All bedrooms have ensuite facilities and have everything you need to ensure your stay is both comfortable and relaxing. Clean linen and towels are provided as and when requested by the client.

Fully Residential

As a fully residential detox clinic, we are able to manage everything in-house, providing security and 24/7 medical nursing care and support to all of our clients. Everything is carried out under the one roof and patients do not leave the premises without a member of staff present. Oasis Bradford goes the extra mile to provide an effective and holistic and medically managed detox experience. At lunch and dinner a varied, nutritious diet, specially tailored to the needs of those undergoing detoxification is prepared on-site by a trained Chef. All religious, ethnic and cultural food requirements, special diets, eating disorders and allergies can be catered for.

Holistic Therapies

Oasis Bradford boasts its own SPA bath in a private room. Clients can access this at any time of day or night to help ease aching muscles, tension and to help them to relax. The nurses are also trained in delivering auricular acupuncture and guided relaxation meditation. Staff can provide massages to help with medical issues such as poor circulation. Holistic therapies have been proven to aid the detoxification process.

Benefits

Oasis Bradford’s main focus is to ensure that anyone commencing treatment feels comfortable and safe during their time with us and completes their planned treatment episode. Oasis Bradford is fully residential and has facilities to ensure a comfortable and productive stay. Oasis Bradford provides seamless treatment packages including detoxification, rehabilitation and community integration. These packages are designed to make a service user’s treatment journey as smooth and rewarding as possible.

What works for one person doesn’t necessarily give the best results to another. The best way to help as many people as possible to achieve long-term recovery is to offer choices. Oasis Bradford offers bespoke treatment packages to meet individual needs and is even able to offer different locations within the group, treatment modalities and lengths of stay.

All of our staff are qualified and many in recovery themselves, which means we have a deep understanding of addiction – and the difficulties it can present. Oasis employees are continually undergoing professional training, meaning we’re always improving our service and can provide the most up to date therapies. A high proportion of our service users have multiple addictions or are cross-addicted which can be identified and treated by Oasis Bradford.

Preparation is important to ensure positive outcomes and Oasis will fully engage in preparing people for both detoxification and rehabilitation. We will attend any preparation groups and present our experience of what service users can expect on their journey with Oasis.

It is important that we engage with everyone involved in the service users treatment. Oasis will keep all Care Managers informed of their service user’s journey through our services. We will send updates of recovery plans, graduation reports on completion of detoxification, primary and secondary treatment care. We will also send four-weekly reports informing Care Managers of the service users progress and welcome six-weekly face to face visits or telephone assessments.

Service users will be transferred from our inpatient detoxification facility to any Oasis Recovery Rehabilitation Centre at no extra cost to the referring agency.

Personal Care Plan

A Personal Care Plan will address the needs identified during referral and assessment and will be monitored and adapted as appropriate through reviews held regularly throughout treatment.

Physical health improvements will be a key part of the care plan reviews and will be adapted as needs change. Trained nursing staff are on duty 24-hours-a-day with a doctor on-site most days along with the centre manager and support staff. A clinical psychiatrist is available in an advisory capacity.

Service users will be transferred from our inpatient detoxification facility to any Oasis Recovery Rehabilitation Centre at no extra cost to the referring agency.

At Oasis Recovery Communities we feel that listening to our service users enables us to continually improve.

Addiction - It's a family disease

Family involvement

The importance of family and friends to the individual’s recovery is understood, as are the difficulties they face. Staff are available for support and advice for families and friends every Sunday during visiting hours. The centre can be contacted throughout the week for additional support and advice over the phone. Everything needed for a comfortable and valuable detox experience is under one roof at Bradford Oasis. On the ground floor are plenty of rooms for admissions, interviews, group and key-working sessions as well as a well-equipped family room for visitors with children.

Aftercare package

An aftercare group is held at the centre every week and is free to access for up to a year, on completion of treatment.

Complex Needs & Dual Diagnosis

Oasis Recovery Communities believe that everyone has the right to recovery.

Oasis is capable of working with service users who have complex mental health issues, secondary disorders such as eating, gambling, or sex addiction. Oasis also works with service users on various different types of medication whether that is anti- psychotic or for pain management. Occasionally we may ask that medication be reviewed or amended prior to a service user commencing their treatment. All referrals are individually reviewed concerning criminal history.

All referrals are accepted and each referral is reviewed. If we feel we can safely meet the needs of the individual we will offer a placement.

If we feel we cannot we will respond why we are not able to offer a place and the reason we are unable to meet a service user’s needs.

12 Step Programme

Our 12 step programme focuses on an active engagement strategy designed to increase the likelihood of the service user becoming affiliated with and actively involved in 12 step mutual aid groups, thereby promoting abstinence and long term recovery.

Three key ideas predominate:

  • • Acceptance, which includes the realisation that all addictions are a chronic, progressive illness over which one has no control, that life has become unmanageable because of the addiction, that willpower alone is insufficient to overcome the problem, and that abstinence is the only alternative.
  • • Surrender, which involves giving oneself over to a higher power, accepting the fellowship and support structure of other recovering addicted individuals, and following the recovery activities laid out by the 12 step programme.
  • • Active involvement in 12 step meetings and related activities

Our 12 step approach gives every service user who chooses this route a full introduction to all 12 steps. As well as a life story worksheet and session, there are various other specialised worksheets around relationships, honesty, self-esteem, etc., it is a very intensive programme and is adaptable in that it will fit to the service user’s needs regardless where they are in their treatment.

We take service users through the step work at their own pace, we will take them through all 12 steps in most cases but always respecting their own recovery plan, ability, motivation and rate of progress.

There are other worksheets available to help every service user at particular stages of their journey such as the concept of illness, cross addiction and various worksheets around guilt, shame, anger, and other related issues.

Service users are expected to attend regular 12 step meetings to complement the work they are doing in treatment and to introduce them to the various wider recovering community.

Strengths Programme

a graph about addiction treatment strengths

See a larger version of the graph

The strengths model follows a nine-stage approach, focusing on the strengths and promoting a positive future. Service users are able to map their progression from one stage to the next, which is important in early recovery, where targets and goals should be thought about in short, manageable chunks.

Each module moves on from the successful completion of the preceding module. The programme has been designed in such a way that there is a variety of worksheets within each module that the worker and service user can choose from and which are most appropriate to them. Therefore, although each module is necessary to do in order, the worksheets and activities within them can be used flexibly.

The overall model is designed to move away from the traditional ‘defects’ models, where early treatment often involves ‘denial busting’ by emphasising not only the negative effects of drugs and alcohol but also the negative qualities within the service user themselves. The core principles behind this model are that when a service user reaches out for treatment, their denial has dropped sufficiently for them to ask for help.

A positive stock-check of a service user’s strengths and assets – their recovery capital – is a crucial early stage in the treatment episode.

Specific SMART goals must be made throughout treatment.

Peers are the most appropriate support and teachers throughout many aspects of the programme, especially around supporting specific recovery targets.

  • • Oasis Detox 88% of service users complete as planned
  • • Oasis Rehab 92% of service users complete as planned

What our service users say:

  • • How did you find treatment? – 98% very good/good
  • • Did you meet your care plan goals? – 90% met all their goals
  • • Was your medication dealt with appropriately and safely? – 97% agreed
  • • How would you rate your counsellors? – 99% very good/good
  • • How would you rate the programme scope? – 98% very good/good
  • • Would you recommend to others? - 98% Yes
These statistics are taken from our service user exit surveys Sept 2015 – Dec 2015. 136 Surveys.

Rehab Treatment

Clients undertake a regimen of therapy, guidance, advice, well-being and structured psychological, physical, and emotional treatments to understand addiction, cope with it, deal with it, and ultimately live a life free from substances and behavioural harm.

Our treatments include:

  • • 12-step therapy
  • • Experimental therapy
  • • One-to-one and group therapies
  • • Stress reduction techniques
  • • Motivational interviewing
  • • Relaxation techniques
  • • Art and creative therapies
  • • Cognitive behavioural therapy
  • • Relapse prevention
  • • Holistic therapies
  • • Psychological interventions
  • • Spiritual studies
  • • Health pursuits
  • • Addiction education
  • • Meditation
  • • Mindfulness

Detox Treatment

At Oasis Bradford we offer a full medically supervised detox for those suffering from a physical addiction to alcohol or drugs. On admission, all clients see our medical practitioner, who specialises in detoxification. Clients will be prescribed any detox medications our medical practitioner feels they require to make their stay at Oasis Bradford as comfortable as possible.

As a full treatment centre, we have the experience and facilities to undertake detox from a wide range of substances. These include:

  • • Alcohol
  • • Heroin
  • • Methadone
  • • Cocaine
  • • Crack Cocaine
  • • Sleeping tablets
  • • Prescription drugs
  • • Opiates & OTC drugs
  • • Amphetamines
  • • Cannabis
  • • Hallucinogenics

Secondary Treatment

Our Second Stage treatment modalities deliver the personal recovery programme which breaks from a traditional counselling focus intervention, to a Recovery Capital focus, based on the latest advances in the Personal Leadership industry.

The Personal Recovery Programme is a goals-based programme aimed to help service users achieve excellence, as they view it, across the areas of Family, Work and Finance, Social, Mental and Emotional, Physical Health and Personal Recovery.

This programme is designed to give a personal, structured recovery plan that runs in parallel with the traditional secondary programmes still delivered within Oasis centres, consisting of key-working, process groups and other community activities.

It was designed in consultation with our own service users who found that, although second stage treatment needs to be bespoke, they tended to struggle with a lack of structure that comes from having more personal responsibility for their own progress.

To compliment the personal recovery programme service users are encouraged to engage in volunteering, education and training opportunities that we have available. These opportunities help to create a seamless transition into the local community.

Service users will be introduced to mutual aid meetings in and around the area which they can continue to access on completion of treatment.

Leaving Treatment

Before completing treatment every service user prepares a post treatment recovery plan covering all aspects to support ongoing recovery.

If a service user wishes to return to their local community after completion of treatment we will help and support them in making sure that their living environment and surroundings are suitable for someone in early recovery. We will also ensure that they know where their local meetings are, and make sure that they are linked into local aftercare services. Some service users may wish to relocate and not return back to their local community straight away, or at all. We offer support and pathways into various sober living accommodation across the county. Service users will also have available to them a weekly aftercare group at any of our services.

Referral Process

Oasis believes in keeping things simple and our referral process couldn’t be simpler. All that is needed is a telephone call or email. Please telephone your Admission Manager or email us.

The Admissions Manager will then liaise with the Care Manager and arrange for the service user to visit our service for a pre-admission visit. We would advise all service users to attend the service of their choice before commencing their placement. However, we do understand that this is not always possible, so telephone or Skype assessments can be completed.

Once the assessment has been completed the Oasis Admissions Manager will liaise with the Oasis Centre Manager and our Doctor to ensure we can meet the needs of the service user.

When we have all agreed that we can safely meet the needs of the service user we will contact the Care Manager and arrange a convenient date and time for admission.

In order to speed up the admission process for any service user attending for alcohol detox, Oasis will require the service user’s full blood count and liver function test. For any service user with an extensive criminal history, we will also require a copy of their previous convictions. For any service user with current mental health issues, we will require a copy of their latest mental health summary (assessment and any care plans).

What our clients say about us:

Very professional and attentive service, would definitely recommend .

I have loved Oasis Bradford and could do my full 3 month treatment here, I have found isolation helpful and given me time to reflect and then having breaks so I could engage with other clients helped. Staff are amazing.

It has been eye opening and eventful, very positive outcome and staff very supportive.

Very good treatment…Staff were very professional.

My stay here was short being only in for a detox, however I found the quality of the staff at the Runcorn centre extremely helpful and informative towards my recovery and the next steps I will be taking to ensure I stay healthy, If you’re struggling with addiction, I would personally recommend this service.

Great staff who are always happy to help. My counsellor was brilliant. Felt safe and supported at all times. Definitely recommend.

At Liberty House Clinic we understand that our clients will often contact us in a time of crisis. As such, we have an extremely streamlined admissions process that is designed to be fast, safe and provide informed information to a friend or family member, when acting on behalf of the client.

We understand the importance of the treatment we provide and our primary aim is to turn around lives by providing the necessary tools and skills through our rehabilitation programme, with the ultimate aim of our clients living a full, fruitful and substance free life.

Our passion for helping individuals with addiction and substance misuse issues is reflected in our treatment team also, many of whom have many years of experience within the field of addiction services. Our treatment programmes as well as our treatment staff place the client very much at the heart of what we do, guaranteeing the highest levels of commitment. Many of our staff have been in long term recovery themselves so they better understand the experiences that a newly admitted client will likely go through.

We understand that no two clients that enter our service are the same and as such our programme and facilities are designed with enough scope to provide tailored treatment based on the individuals’ needs. Following a full length rehab treatment episode, our clients will be entitled to 12 months free aftercare services at no further additional cost.

Personal Care Plan

A Personal Care Plan will address the needs identified during referral and assessment and will be monitored and adapted as appropriate through reviews held regularly throughout treatment.

Physical health improvements will be a key part of the care plan reviews and will be adapted as needs change. Trained nursing staff are on duty 24-hours-a-day with a doctor on-site most days along with the centre manager and support staff. A clinical psychiatrist is available in an advisory capacity.

At our centre, we feel that listening to our service users enables us to continually improve.

Health and Wellbeing

  • • All our centres have on site chefs that provide healthy balanced meals.
  • • Fresh fruit is available throughout the day along with hot drinks, water and juices.
  • • Service users dietary and allergy requirements are catered
  • • We welcome and support servicer users cultural and religious beliefs
  • • There is access to a local gym and swimming pool at the appropriate time in a service users treatment.
  • • Local walks are built into the treatment programme.
  • • Dance and art therapy.
  • • Music groups.
  • • Relaxation and meditation.

12 Step Programme

Our 12 step programme focuses on an active engagement strategy designed to increase the likelihood of the service user becoming affiliated with and actively involved in 12 step mutual aid groups, thereby promoting abstinence and long term recovery.

Three key ideas predominate:

  • • Acceptance, which includes the realisation that all addictions are a chronic, progressive illness over which one has no control, that life has become unmanageable because of the addiction, that willpower alone is insufficient to overcome the problem, and that abstinence is the only alternative.
  • • Surrender, which involves giving oneself over to a higher power, accepting the fellowship and support structure of other recovering addicted individuals, and following the recovery activities laid out by the 12 step programme.
  • • Active involvement in 12 step meetings and related activities

Our 12 step approach gives every service user who chooses this route a full introduction to all 12 steps. As well as a life story worksheet and session, there are various other specialised worksheets around relationships, honesty, self-esteem, etc., it is a very intensive programme and is adaptable in that it will fit to the service user’s needs regardless where they are in their treatment.

We take service users through the step work at their own pace, we will take them through all 12 steps in most cases but always respecting their own recovery plan, ability, motivation and rate of progress.

There are other worksheets available to help every service user at particular stages of their journey such as the concept of illness, cross addiction and various worksheets around guilt, shame, anger, and other related issues.

Service users are expected to attend regular 12 step meetings to complement the work they are doing in treatment and to introduce them to the various wider recovering community.

Rehab Treatment

Clients undertake a regimen of therapy, guidance, advice, well-being and structured psychological, physical, and emotional treatments to understand addiction, cope with it, deal with it, and ultimately live a life free from substances and behavioural harm.

Our treatments include:

  • • 12-step therapy
  • • Experimental therapy
  • • One-to-one and group therapies
  • • Stress reduction techniques
  • • Motivational interviewing
  • • Relaxation techniques
  • • Art and creative therapies
  • • Cognitive behavioural therapy
  • • Relapse prevention
  • • Holistic therapies
  • • Psychological interventions
  • • Spiritual studies
  • • Health pursuits
  • • Addiction education
  • • Meditation
  • • Mindfulness

Secondary Treatment

Our Second Stage treatment modalities deliver the personal recovery programme which breaks from a traditional counselling focus intervention, to a Recovery Capital focus, based on the latest advances in the Personal Leadership industry.

The Personal Recovery Programme is a goals-based programme aimed to help service users achieve excellence, as they view it, across the areas of Family, Work and Finance, Social, Mental and Emotional, Physical Health and Personal Recovery.

This programme is designed to give a personal, structured recovery plan that runs in parallel with the traditional secondary programmes still delivered within the centre, consisting of key-working, process groups and other community activities.

It was designed in consultation with our own service users who found that, although second stage treatment needs to be bespoke, they tended to struggle with a lack of structure that comes from having more personal responsibility for their own progress.

To compliment the personal recovery programme service users are encouraged to engage in volunteering, education and training opportunities that we have available. These opportunities help to create a seamless transition into the local community.

Service users will be introduced to mutual aid meetings in and around the area which they can continue to access on completion of treatment.

Leaving Treatment

Before completing treatment every service user prepares a post treatment recovery plan covering all aspects to support ongoing recovery.

If a service user wishes to return to their local community after completion of treatment we will help and support them in making sure that their living environment and surroundings are suitable for someone in early recovery. We will also ensure that they know where their local meetings are, and make sure that they are linked into local aftercare services. Some service users may wish to relocate and not return back to their local community straight away, or at all. We offer support and pathways into various sober living accommodation across the county. Service users will also have available to them a weekly aftercare group at any of our services.

Referral Process

We believe in keeping things simple and our referral process couldn’t be simpler. All that is needed is a telephone call or email. Please telephone your Admission Manager or email us.

The Admissions Manager will then liaise with the Care Manager and arrange for the service user to visit our service for a pre-admission visit. We would advise all service users to attend the service of their choice before commencing their placement. However, we do understand that this is not always possible, so telephone or Skype assessments can be completed.

Once the assessment has been completed, our Admissions Team will liaise with the Liberty House Clinic Centre Manager and our Doctor to ensure we can meet the needs of the service user.

When we have all agreed that we can safely meet the needs of the service user we will contact the Care Manager and arrange a convenient date and time for admission.

In order to speed up the admission process for any service user attending for alcohol detox, we will require the service user’s full blood count and liver function test. For any service user with an extensive criminal history, we will also require a copy of their previous convictions. For any service user with current mental health issues, we will require a copy of their latest mental health summary (assessment and any care plans).

What our clients say about us:

My treatment and care has been outstanding. I have no complaints at all. If i needed to talk to to someone or needed anything, nothing was a problem. The question of how the staff is rated. There should be a option of rating the staff as excellent also rating management overall.

I am very happy with the treatment I have received at Liberty house. it has left me more confident to deal with my addictions on the outside world. I feel I have been given the tools to move on with my recovery. My peers have been a great help in my journey, as have all the staff & counsellors.

I came into liberty house feeling very down about life and unsure whether rehab would work but i am leaving feeling the happiest in a long time and excited to live again. Therapists were amazing and ive learnt things about myself that i never knew

Great staff on all levels, facilities premises including the food was very good. Treatment by Therapists and support staff was amazing. Food and accommodation was also very good overall.

Just brilliant, I got all the help and support that I so needed not just from all the support staff but chefs and house keepers.

Amazing staff at all levels…Housekeeping, counsellors, support workers and chefs all went above and beyond to make my experience special. I cannot thank them enough for creating such a wonderful atmosphere in which the entire group thrived. I am leaving here to start my new life feeling calm, collected and full of excitement. I will never forget this experience nor the people that made it so special. Thanks so much for everything again!!!!!
