As much as possible, the Drug and Alcohol Addiction Rehabilitation Recovery Treatment Programs attempts to replicate a normal living environment within the confines of a hospital. With the exception of the detoxification component of the program, all client meals are provided in a communal dining room where clients are also free to make tea and coffee throughout the day.
Please note, no food and/or drinks are to be brought into the facility at any time.
A varied menu is provided, and we are able to accommodate any special dietary requirements – please advise the staff on admission.
Televisions are provided in the lounge areas of the hospital only, along with daily newspapers.
Clients are expected to make their own beds each day (with the exception of detoxification clients), and linen is available as the patient’s requires.
Clients are expected to do their personal laundry. There is a laundry for clients use in the hospital.
