Say hello to Carpenter's Arms
Phase 1: Detox
Carpenter’s Arms, Wharncliffe Road, Loughborough, LE11 1SL
Phase 1: Admission
You can find an application form on our website or we can post one to you. Once we’ve received your application form, our manager or one of the senior members of staff will arrange a telephone interview with you.
After submitting your interview results to our doctor, he will let us know if you are suitable for our programme. If the doctor is agreeable you’re placed on a waiting list and asked to call in to the centre, about once a week.
When a space is available we organise a date for you to arrive, usually at the beginning of a week
Phase 1: Detox
Phase 1 is all about detoxing and getting ready for Phase 2. From the moment you arrive, you won’t be able to take drugs, alcohol or cigarettes, but you may be prescribed methadone or similar. By the time you finish Phase 1 you should be free from all substitutes like methadone and subutex
The daily programme is a mixture of meetings, one on one sessions, life skills coaching. We encourage family and friends to visit, usually from the second week forward, to help set up a positive support network for you.
This Phase lasts between 2 and 12 weeks, depending on your detox
Life after Phase 1
We provide the option to attend our Phase 2 programme. This programme sees residents through an extended period of support, addressing the behavioural aspects to an addiction based lifestyle including; relationships, looking after your emotional and physical health etc.
