LEAP family Programme

Organisation : NHS Lothian
Grant Amount : £ 79,302

The Family Programme is a proposed development to the established Sustance Misuse Directorate LEAP programme, which offers rehabilitation to those with chemical dependency. The Family Programme takes a whole family approach to the treatment of addiction promoting and enhancing carer and service user support.
Family members will have the opportunity to participate in a programme consisting of psycho-educational presentations, peer-led discussion groups and individual and group therapy. The Family Programme will run in parallel with the LEAP patient programme and will dovetail with it at points to increase the opportunities of recovery for the whole family.
