All groups are age appropriate and individual hobbies and interests are encouraged. Regular outings such as trips to Dublin, shopping, movies and eating out are all part of life at Lois Bridges. Every aspect of our programme is designed to provide clients with a lifestyle they can continue upon discharge.
The Individual needs of each person are continually assessed by the team at our weekly multi disciplinary Team meeting. The length of our residential program depends upon each individual needs at the time of admission.
Initial assessment is carried out by our Consultant Psychiatrist and Clinical Director Dr Máire McLoughlin
A designated therapist and key worker is assigned to everyone who enters treatment. Individual therapy is highly valued at Lois Bridges. Our Nutritionist meets with each individual to discuss their nutritional requirements on admission.
On Completion of assessments the team together with the individual will meet to devise and discuss their treatment plan.
We provide a full aftercare programme that is individually designed based on each person’s needs and requirements at that time. We are committed to providing smooth transitions for every phase of recovery.
