Ley Community is an Oxfordshire, UK based residential treatment facility that is associated with Choices Rehab Centre. It’s a non-12-step based therapeutic community that offers long term, phase down treatment programming. Treatment is peer driven and experiential. Above all, clients receive ample support while learning new skills that carry over into the real world.
Accommodations and Food
The Ley Community houses both men and women on a five acre campus, which is about five miles outside of historic Oxford. Its grounds are very spacious and green, with a lake, football area, a volleyball and badminton court, herb garden, pool and cookout area. Perhaps most noteworthy, there is also a flat on campus specifically for family members to stay during visits.
The community has a total of 48 beds. Clients share bedrooms and bathrooms. The residents prepare their own meals and can accommodate specific food requirements and requests. This includes vegetarian, vegan, gluten and nut free, Halal and Kosher.
Treatment and Staff
Ley Community is a fully immersive program that can last up to two years. The initial phase of treatment lasts for about 26 weeks. This stage of treatment begins with a two week introduction period where a “buddy” accompanies the client as he or she learns how the program operates.
Days are very busy here. The first phase requires an early morning wake up every day, followed by working within a department. This includes kitchen duty, housekeeping, or working in and around the treatment facility and campus. There are also several group therapy sessions every day. These groups can be peer led, or led by a therapist.
The second phase lasts up to three months. It focuses on clients trying their hand at several different jobs on a voluntary basis. Clients attend relapse prevention groups and start the transitional stage of treatment.
The Ley Community utilizes evidence-based approaches such as CBT, DBT and Motivational Interviewing (MI). As clients move through treatment, they earn more privileges and responsibilities. Consequently, they then become mentors to those who are new to the program.
Staff includes main therapeutic team members and support staff. They are addiction specialist and psychologists.
Complementary therapies in the program include Reiki and auricular acupuncture. Other therapeutic activities include art and music therapy, and psychodrama. There are also animals on site that the residents care for.
At Ley Community there is the aftercare and forever care. This includes assistance with permanent housing, and then monthly meet ups.
Choices Rehabs’ Ley Community program provides a healthy environment for their clients within a relapse prevention structure. Clients learn how to care for themselves and others, improving their self esteem and giving them valuable life skills. The Ley Community is a lifelong support system that really offers a helping and healing hand.
