Oasis Bradford, Inpatient Detox
Built in 2009, Oasis Communities Bradford was originally commissioned by the Department of Health as the only detox unit of its kind in West Yorkshire. The 17-bedded detox unit is equipped to accommodate people with limited mobility and wheelchair users who can self care and can make provision for some additional personal care needs. Oasis Communities Bradford provides a safe, supportive environment, where clients can complete a physical withdrawal from drugs and/ or alcohol, or stabilise their use safely with medical support and within a specialist treatment setting.
All clients participate in a treatment programme including individual care plan development and reviews, group work and social activities. Working closely with referrers and with weekly support available for families and friends, much is done to help clients sustain the health improvements possible from treatment at Oasis Communities Bradford. Central to everything at the service is a person-centred approach where all interventions are based on individual need, circumstances and choices.
The Oasis Communities detox programme addresses the whole person – body, mind and spirit. A medically managed detoxification or stabilisation is supplemented by a wealth of group and individual sessions and talks to help provide maximum long-term benefit. Complementary therapies are also available and include guided relaxation and exercise.
A Personal Care Plan will address the needs identified during referral and assessment and will be monitored and adapted as appropriate through reviews held regularly throughout treatment. Physical health improvements will be a key part of the care plan reviews and will be adapted as needs change. Trained nursing staff are on duty 24-hours-a-day with a doctor on site most days along with the centre manager and support staff. A clinical psychiatrist is available in an advisory capacity.
External healthcare including podiatry, wound care, emergency dentistry and diabetes nursing can also be arranged. An aftercare group is held at the centre every week and is free to access for up to three months after discharge. Oasis Bradford goes the extra mile to provide an effective and holistic detox experience. At lunch and dinner a varied, nutritious diet, specially tailored to the needs of those undergoing detoxification is prepared on-site by trained catering staff. All religious, ethnic and cultural food requirements, special diets and allergies can be catered for.
The importance of family and friends to recovery is understood, as are the difficulties they face. Staff are available for support and advice for families and friends every Sunday during visiting hours. The centre can be contact throughout the week for additional support and advice can be for further support in local areas.
