When you enter Littledale you will never be “just another client”. You will be entering a treatment centre that has a successful long-standing history of supporting people to address their addiction and associated psychological, emotional and physical health problems in order to live productive and positive lives in mainstream society.
Littledale was established in 2006 and has been consistently recognised by CQC and commissioning authorities as a provider that delivers a high standard of innovative and evidence-based care and support to people recovering from the complexities of addiction.
The model at Littledale has evolved through a combination of 25 years' experience of developing services and our innovative neuro-bio-psycho-social model. This model addresses all the key elements associated to an individual’s addiction. The model offers each resident an opportunity to develop a greater understanding and insight into the complexities of their addiction and associated life experiences. We believe that the more informed a service user is, the greater the potential to make different positive choices.
The team at Littledale has extensive experience providing, developing and delivering innovative options for recovery. Our services reflect best practice in the field of addiction and our aim is to deliver a qualitative, evidence-based service. Everything we do at Littledale is about promoting balance and positive life habits to support improved health and wellbeing for those in recovery from addiction. Coming to Littledale is voluntary.
