“Supporting Individual Rehabilitation Pathways”

The model is informed by; Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Motivational Interviewing (MI), Community Reinforcement Approach (CRA), Adult Education,  Complementary therapies and social activities. Sankalpa Addiction Treatment focuses on providing individualised, evidence based and outcomes focused interventions, to service users accessing our services for the Finglas and Cabra area.
