Black box therapy promotes relaxation, sleep and supports management of cravings and withdrawal. A gentle electrical pulse is administered to key acupuncture points on the ears and hands during one to one sessions.

Parent, Carer, Family support- Staff Names and contact details

Carers and Families are often ignored because of the attention given to the person with the problem. Families attempt to keep relationships going and continue to offer support in the most difficult and sometimes distressing circumstances. Cadas is here to help, providing a free service to help families cope. Support is offered via confidential one to one sessions, support groups, workshops and alternative therapies such as guided visualisation & Black Box.

Julie Oram
Family Communication Project

A project delivered in partnership with Brathay in Ambleside. The team deliver a series of workshops in the community including within schools and youth groups. The sessions focus on how we communicate within our families and with others about potentially tricky subjects such as alcohol and drug use and cyber bullying. Young people develop skills and knowledge about how to stay safe and are given information about where they can go for further support. They can then take part in a weekend residential along with their families where they consolidate what they have learned through group sessions and outdoor activities in the beautiful surroundings of Brathay Hall in Ambleside.
