Diversity in Recovery Programme
All individuals accessing recovery services will have potential barriers to overcome. However, people from BME communities may face additional barriers such as ethnicity, culture, language or faith.
To compliment the CGL (ChangeGrowLive) Foundations of Recovery programme and to ensure that people’s access to psychological therapies is not hindered by their ethnicity, culture or faith, KIKIT has developed and designed the Diversity in Recovery Programme which is a specialist, 6-week psychosocial programme geared towards service users from black minority communities that experience barriers in their recovery journey.
The 6-week programme consists of three phases which aid individuals and families by following a procedure through breaking barriers and making changes, building tools to continue and grow and then utilising their expertise and assets to achieve a successful recovery and live a life away from addiction.
This programme explains the context and the need for positive action. Diversity in Recovery also offers a ‘Family in Treatment’ service which supports families of those registered on the DIR programme to understand the difficulties in recovery and how they can use positive reinforcement to encourage their family member in recovery. This programme will look at involving families and helping to reduce stress with multi-lingual progress reports, harm minimisation sessions, substance misuse awareness, coping mechanisms and stress relief.
