Focus12 looks to the future of Addiction Treatment and Recovery with WHYADDICTED?
Focus 12 has created a partnership with WhyAddicted.com to bring the world’s first neuro-psychological addiction assessment to the UK. The Why Addicted Organic Score Card (WOSC) is a critical element in ensuring all our treatment programmes are bespoke and tailored to meet each client’s individual needs. Incorporating this tool into our treatment programme will significantly improve recovery rates and reduce the incidence of relapse.
Our clients complete a simple 20 minute on-line questionnaire as part of their admission. This generates a neuropsychological map, identifying fundamental and specific recovery blocks within the brain. WOSC draws on similar methodologies to psychometric testing, only at a deeper level. The results of the assessment are fed back to each client and their dedicated Focus 12 counsellor in a 60 minute Skype appointment. WOSC generates client specific insights that empowers our team with information that we will use to tailor programmes individually. Brain chemistry alters over time and clients will be given the opportunity to continue with WOSC after graduation; tracking the impact of their treatment and highlighting residual blocks that need more work.
WOSC operates a scientifically accredited assessment process originally developed in the Netherlands and exclusively adapted by WhyAddicted.com for addiction screening. WOSC originates from the knowledge that the likelihood of positive growth and sustainable recovery is enhanced if individuals can address specific drivers for their addictive behaviours and remove prevalent blocks.
WOSC maps the intrinsic talents, ambitions, motivations and growth possibilities of participants. This enables our counsellors to explore how a client is currently functioning from his or her core being and what options he or she has to change to live a better life. All behaviour comes from awareness aspects of identity, environment and time. It is universal and ancient; this trichotomy appears in European as well as Chinese philosophy. The system developers conducted significant research on the universality and historical origins of this methodology. The classifications used in WOSC are deeply rooted in humankind; the inescapable origin of every form of behaviour.
Focus12 is extremely excited about integrating WOSC into the Focus 12 Treatment Programme, knowing it will have a significant, powerful and sustainable impact on client recovery rates and reinforce our holistic and bespoke approach to each and every client.
