The first ACORN Recovery Projects residential abstinence-based treatment centre has opened in Burnley.

The facility caters to clients struggling with addiction, who are thus able to live in a friendly environment whilst undertaking rehabilitative programmes and working towards long term recovery.

Clients are required to be fully abstinent from all substances with ACORN helping clients with its Reduction and Motivation Programme.

The facility comprises of six single bedrooms, four bathrooms, two fully-equipped kitchens, a dining room, and communal areas, and was officially opened by Christopher Lee, Lancashire County Council Public Health Specialist.

Sarah Hanson, Managing Director for ACORN Recovery Projects, said: “We are pleased to be able to offer 1st class treatment services delivered in a homely environment.

“The new service will allow us to offer the security and privacy needed to support clients into lifelong recovery, along with making a significant difference to the wider community as a result”.

The Dependency Emotional Attachment Programme (DEAP), which is undertaken by the clients whilst at the centre, explores the emotional side of addiction.

With both group and one-on-one counselling provided by fully-qualified and experienced Addiction Counselors, the programme is geared towards full rehabilitation, with work being carried out alongside families to help them through the recovery journey.
