Outpatient and day care treatment
We are able to provide outpatient and day care treatment at Life Works.
What is outpatient treatment?
Outpatient treatment consists of you attending Life Works, usually for 1 hour per week, to receive therapy. These sessions can be arranged for times that are convenient to you and fit in with your work and other commitments.
This flexible form of therapy is useful for clients who need ongoing support, but don’t need intensive 24-hour monitoring or more comprehensive day care.
What is day care?
Day care is characterised by clients attending Life Works for a set number of full or half days each week to receive support.
This format of therapy is particularly useful for individuals who don’t need round-the-clock care, but do require some level of structured, ongoing therapy.

Flexible treatment pathways at Life Works
Outpatient treatment can be used as a step-down from the more intensive day care or inpatient treatment options. Day care may be used as a step-up in intensity from an outpatient treatment programme, or as a step-down in intensity from an inpatient treatment programme.
In addition, outpatient treatment and day care options can also be used as an entry-point to treatment if required, or can be used in preparation for a residential stay at Life Works.
The treatment and recovery pathway that you take at Life Works will be completely personalised according to your individual requirements and the level of support that you need.
