Dual Diagnosis

Dual Diagnosis

Someone with a ‘dual diagnosis’ has a mental health condition (such as schizophrenia, bipolar affective disorder, stress, anxiety & depression) alongside a substance dependency (alcohol, street drugs or prescribed medication).

Both problems combine to have a significantly damaging effect upon a person’s life; each condition has symptoms that interfere with a person’s ability to function, self-perception and form relationships with others.

People with a dual diagnosis can often experience other non-medical difficulties: these may include social, legal, housing, welfare and lifestyle matters, which healthcare services can’t always provide support with.

The team currently offers:
• 1:1 support/therapy for mental health and addictions.
• Auricular Acupuncture.
• Mindfulness-based Cognitive Therapy: 8 weeks course.
• Mindfulness-based Relapse Prevention: 8 weeks course (addictions).
• Mindfulness-based Stress Reduction: 8 weeks course (stress/anxiety).
• The PTSD programme, incorporating EMDR, ACT, CFT and reconsolidation.
• Reversing the Spiral (RTS): A transitional lifestyle change programme.

The team works alongside other mental health, drug/alcohol counselling and related services to provide a more all-around support to those living in supported housing and the community within the Waveney area.

As a direct-access service, the Team welcomes self-referrals (in addition to those made by referring agencies). Referral forms can be requested by telephone (01502) 527214 or via email at ddt@accessct.org.

Hoarding and Decluttering Support

Hoarding and Decluttering Support

Our ongoing commitment to Community Health and Wellbeing has led to the creation of our compassionate hoarding and decluttering support service across Waveney.

Hoarding can be triggered by many factors and our dedicated support team understands this. We embrace an holistic approach, which is sensitive to each individual we support.

We help clients to understand what factors may cause them to compulsively acquire and store items they may not necessarily require. We provide decluttering and clearance relief, whilst delivering ongoing wraparound support and therapies if required to positively assist individuals in maintaining future physical and mental wellbeing.

View our informative introductory leaflet here, which includes information on identifying symptoms.

Referrals are welcomed by Local Authority and Adult Social Care, GP’s, Social Prescribing, Police, Self-referrals and/or from Relatives/Friends. To make a referral simple email hoarding@accessct.org or call/message 07884 750520
