Bayberry Clinic (Bayberry Community Ltd)provides specialist residential addiction and mental health treatment to addicted healthcare professionals throughout the UK. The clinic is located in Wendlebury (Bicester).
The programme is highly confidential which is imperative for healthcare professionals due to stigma and visibility issues. Healthcare professionals are treated with their peers which has demonstrated more successful outcomes than when treatment is integrated with mainstream services.
With a team that includes two consultant psychiatrists, a specialist GP, a specialist psychiatric and addictions nurse, a chartered psychologist, an addiction counsellor, psychotherapists and support workers Bayberry Clinic offers a wealth of experience and expertise in the field of addiction and mental health.
The programme integrates 12-Step Facilitation, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and other evidence-based therapies. Most of the work is group-based with healthcare professionals treated with their peers to enhance recovery. There is a weekly professional issues group to address work-related issues specific to healthcare professionals. Individual therapy is part of the programme to address personal issues in more depth. Other activities include Equine Assisted Psychotherapy, Fitness Training and Yoga.
