To create and maintain a safe, caring and non-judgmental environment whereby clients, their families and loved ones, affected by the trauma, dysfunction and despair of substance misuse can explore, recognize and rectify their issues, allowing long term recovery and freedom from active addiction.
ARC is committed to equality at all times and does not discriminate against age, race, gender or faith/belief.
The ARC day and residential programmes were designed specifically to accommodate “all” client groups wishing to seek recovery from substance misuse.
Accommodating a client’s needs can be both a complex and expensive process when seeking the appropriate package for them. We have recognized the above difficulties that do take place on a frequent basis and thus have developed a programme with the aim of reducing this to a minimum.
Client care should never be compromised, the costs attached to purchasing services and budgets available often dictate and limit the choices offered.
The costs of placing a client in a residential setting can vary, however once a client who initially required detoxification has completed this phase of their care-plan, realistically the funding rate should revert to a residential care rate as the majority of clients no longer require that level of medical care; alas this is not always the case in the majority of the providers of treatment in residential settings.
The operational costs of running these projects have a knock-on effect, which stop at the service purchasers.
Given the set-up and structure of the ARC programmes, we are in a position to offer a comprehensive and cost effective service to both client and service purchaser.
Accommodation, when required is available and open to clients accessing our services.
Medical and legal services are also available when required.

Alcohol/ Drug Awareness and Education Program
Our aim is to demonstrate and educate in practical, re-usable terms how one can move from a life where little seems of value, to one being both substance free and content.
ARC refers to our conviction that any form of addiction can be potentially “life threatening”, recovery is dependent upon a period of re-education, usually more beneficial if the client is initially removed from their usual environment.
Addiction is not a problem of morals or will power.
Willingness to make personal changes in attitudes and life style is fundamental.
We are able to provide and offer the recovery experience of, not only the physical cycle of addiction and its offensive behaviour, but also the resultant emotional dysfunction to which many families of alcoholics and substance misusers find themselves.
ARC the company has been established since 2013 and run by staff with over 50 years of professional counselling experience in residential and day care settings.
We have the knowledge, understanding and empathy so necessary in establishing relationships with clients who have either reached a rock bottom in their lives, or who are being released from institutions and require direction, education and motivation.
All therapeutic staff employed by ARC has experience in our methods and practise of the complexities relating to substance misuse, offending behaviour and relapse.
Philosophy of Programme
We believe that everyone deserves the right to receive the best available help, and we at ARC will ensure that, at all times, either the client or family member will receive a professional, realistic, committed and individual approach to all aspects of the recovery process at a realistic and cost effective fee structure.
The aim being one of total abstinence from all mood-altering chemicals, dealing with the various aspects of addiction, including emotional and spiritual aspects, budgeting, career development and/or re-education, accommodation and relapse prevention.

Target Client Group
Any person aged 18 years or above, who has a history of substance misuse and/or cycles of offending behaviours, whether historical or current.
Day care programmes such as ARC are a worthwhile and useful resource for people who do not wish to undergo intensive treatment in a residential setting, but still have all the similar support and services available to them away from their community.
Evidence based statistics acknowledge that people with substance misuse problems, who seek help, away from their own community increase their chances of finding and maintaining long-term recovery.
Extended Day Programme
Some Clients arrive with a long history of alcohol/substance abuse, often with little or no permanent base.
Many come from difficult, and sometimes traumatic domestic situations, and at the conclusion of the primary programme they are either unable to return home or are indeed homeless.
Such Clients may be offered an extended/ follow up placement to enable them to gradually reintegrate into society.
Clients are assisted with life and social skills, and relaxation and stress management techniques, and are given ample opportunity to demonstrate and take responsibility for their own lives.
As well as group therapy, and 1:1 counselling sessions, clients will be encouraged to attend Self Help Groups.
Before completing the program at ARC, every client will have a through care package prepared.
This will normally include:
- Weekly group therapy sessions
- Continuation of 1:1 counselling sessions as required.
- Access to medical and legal (if required).
- Our advice centre service covering issues such as work placements, college prospectus, family/legal related problems etc.
- Uses of office facilities to compose C.V.s attend to outstanding/ongoing correspondence.
- On-going review of care plans and reappraisal of goals.
ARC has its own safe and secure accommodation, with 24 hour support.
Recovery of the whole person
Our programme reflects the fact that regardless of complicating physical or psychological factors, addiction is a primary illness, and that illness portrays itself in not only one’s inability to control the use of alcohol and drugs, but by a delusional state, in which sufferers are unable to recognise their dependence.
The programme seeks to break through this delusion/denial, and to re-equate the client not only with reality, but also the need for positive behaviour changes so that they may establish a responsible lifestyle.
