It is our aim to create the necessary conditions for all service users to recover from their dependency to a given substance. We aspire to facilitate positive, healthy recovery, along with all service users maintaining their individuality throughout their stay and beyond.
Taylor House was purchased in early 2013 and following a £180,000 refurbishment programme it was opened to our first programme participants in May 2013. The programme provides 36 places for individuals with a history of substance misuse including alcohol, illicit, prescribed, and other mood altering substances. Currently, Taylor House is the largest stand-alone drug and alcohol residential treatment facility in the North West of England.
Most service user’s stay for a period of between three to six months, however, longer programmes can be arranged if required via the service user’s local authority which is funding their treatment. Treatment can also be funded by the service user themselves if they are not in apposition to access local authority funding.
Treatment provision is predominantly for alcohol addiction, however, service users with secondary substance misuse, along with dependency on alcohol, will be assessed on an individual basis and treatment can be tailored to the individual’s needs. The House has a secure female wing which has the capacity to cater for five female service users.
The Taylor House Therapeutic Community is located in Lytham St Annes and provides alcohol rehab for the effective treatment of alcohol addiction. Our clients are referred by social services departments in local councils in Lancashire and Wyre Councils but we also accept self funding users. As well as residential alcohol rehabilitation, Shardale also offer day care facilities for up to twelve individuals.
