The Bridge Programme
15 rooms have been specially adapted for a residential treatment service for homeless people with dependent substance misuse.
The Programme has been developed and agreed with Cardiff and Vale NHS Trust (now Cardiff and Vale University Health Board) and has been based on the Social Learning Theory Model, which focuses on the causes and consequence of substance misuse. Workers on the Unit will use motivational interviewing techniques to help residents think about their reasons for using substances and to make choices and take action on this basis.
The programme is split into three phases 1.)Preparation 2.)Detox 3.)Therapeutic Aftercare. Each phase of the Programme will involve a timetable which will include group and one to one assessment and support.
