After Care

Jericho House runs a daily After-Care group. Ex Service Users can access support from Jericho according to their needs, including One-to-One support (which is arranged by appointment). They can continue to attend the Family Support Group. The opportunity to participate in sports and leisure activities is also available. Ex service users are very strongly encouraged to attend meetings of Narcotics Anonymous where they receive invaluable continued support. This allows for self-evaluation and commitment to recovery through espousing and practising those values essential to fulfilling personal potential. Integral to our ongoing support and aftercare programme, we offer re-settlement through the supported accommodation route initially, achieving full independent living within the family unit and wider community, as the final tier of the individuals four tier programme of recovery, when their primary residential stage has been successfully completed. Access to further education and retraining opportunities with support to find gainful full time employment are also integral to our aftercare program.

We offer a free service to the suffering addict who has a genuine desire to gain freedom from active addiction and who is motivated to that goal with the objective a achieving an independent lifestyle within the family unit and wider community as productive and responsible family members and members of society.
