By adopting a person centred approach and applying the concept of recovery, Newton house rehabilitates individuals to their optimum level of functioning and focuses on individual’s recovery by enhancing skills and independence in a least restrictive environment.
Rehabilitation involves comprehensive assessment and individualised programmes of interventions that aim to stabilise symptoms and improve everyday functioning. These interventions include: optimising medication regimes and minimising side effects; psychological interventions to manage active psychotic symptoms, gain insight, avoid relapse, and support family/carer involvement.
To help patients achieve these targets, the hospital has input from a range of professionals and disciplines, and includes specialist therapies to address ongoing substance misuse; occupational therapy to support the person to gain confidence and skills in activities of daily living.
Here at Newton house we offer an excellent range of psychological therapies, to support individuals in learning and building skills to help work towards their recovery.
The therapies we offer are: CBT for trauma, CBT for bipolar disorder, DBT skills training for personality disorders, CBT for PTSD, CBT for sexualised behaviours, Solution Focused Therapy, Mindfulness, Relaxation, Motivational Interviewing, Social skills training for schizophrenia, Treatment for substance misuse, CBT for Psychosis, DBT Programme for substance use disorders, Treatment for panic disorder and anxiety including social anxiety, Psychoeducation programmes for all psychological disorders, FIP-MO programme and Person Centred Counselling.
Newton House focuses on recovery and discharge at the start of the admission by identifying individual’s goals and needs, which helps formulate a care and treatment plan to ensure the length of stay is kept to the minimum. The average length of stay can be 12 to 18 months where possible however this can vary on an individual’s basis.
