How to access the service

Phone BushyPark Treatment Centre to discuss issues in relation to alcohol, drug and gambling addiction for yourself or someone you are concerned about.  Following this if necessary an appointment will be made for an assessment with an addiction counsellor to further discuss the extent of the addiction. From this assessment stage the client will be further advised and referred to the residential programme or other services.

Quality

BushyPark Treatment Centre is currently undergoing an accreditation process with HAQU to ensure quality standards are maintained at all stages of treatment.  It is envisaged that this will be achieved by end 2009.

Questionnaires and group meetings are used as a method of getting these suggestions and a quality team is in place to oversee the implementation of these suggestions. This team is also charged with the development and monitoring of quality standards in the centre.
