Helping Men and Women overcome Alcohol and Drug Misuse
Kenward Trust is a charity in Kent that helps those affected by addiction homelessness and crime. Our main residential rehabilitation project, Kenward Therapeutic Community, retains many aspects of the Recovery Model of treatment delivery. Alongside our structured group programme, we also offer a wide range of activities with both therapeutic and skills based training in our Gardens and Workshops, which will allow our residents to take evidence of recognised training skills with them into the workplace. At Kenward we believe that building the confidence of our residents back up is vital in order to ensure a sustained recovery, whether this be through the rehabilitation programme itself, or through us providing education to our residents at the skill level relevant to them.
We have reviewed the traditional 12 or 24 week blocks of treatment and can now offer bespoke client centred programmes of between 4 and 24 weeks, dependant on the individual needs of the client. Whilst we do receive residents from the community with statutory funding, we do also take self-funded clients at Kenward. These blocks of treatment mean that those who cannot achieve funding from the community, may still be able to come use and benefit from our services for a time frame that works for them.
Following on from our residential rehabilitation project, we have Move On houses in various locations across Kent and East Sussex. Our Move On houses provide supported, substance free accommodation within the community for those that have completed a recovery programme. Residents live independently at the Move On houses but continue to be supported by us through weekly meetings with their project manager. We find that residents benefit from continuing to live amongst a group of peers, drawing strength and support from each other and reducing the dangers of isolation which ultimately help them to sustain recovery.
Our Kenward Lodge project provides further supported accommodation for those whose lack of accommodation is preventing them from accessing drug and alcohol services and hindering their recovery. This project is based on our Yalding site, with close proximity to local services and amenities alongside access to fellowship, SMART and Aspire meetings. We encourage volunteering within the local community so that their transition back into society is a more positive experience and they have transferable skills for when they get back into the workplace.
