“To provide an informed and supportive group environment to enable an individual to withdraw from alcohol safely.”
The initial assessment is aimed at helping you to decide what changes you want to make and the best way forward. You may choose to use your GP to facilitate a supported community detox, to be referred to the Alcohol Team at Colston Fort (formerly the Robert Smith Unit) or you may prefer to reduce your alcohol intake gradually over time.
It is really important to wait for a physical assessment before a person begins to cut back or stop their alcohol intake.
Post Detox the SWAN Project is committed to nurturing physical health. We aim to acknowledge and celebrate the achievement of abstinence before moving onto the next stage of recovery.
