An Inclusive Community

At Cassiobury Court we provide a confidential safe environment for all our clients from many diverse backgrounds.  Clients and their families can be assured that we can cater for clients who have certain religious and cultural needs.


We Are Culturally and Religiously Sensitive

The issues that can be faced by different religious and ethnic groups can be potentially challenging – which is why at Cassiobury Court we offer cultural and religious sensitivity and understanding to all our clients. There are shared values which are at the core of the work we do, underpinned by the Care and Quality Commission (CQC) fundamental standards.

We understand that within different communities there can be a culture of shame which is not in keeping with religious principles and teachings. There is often a misunderstanding about the disease of addiction which can be a huge obstacle for many clients and their families. If we are not honest about this problem, it will continue to be brushed under the carpet and the cycle will continue. We are part of an international community which is inclusive of everyone. At Cassiobury Court, we are here to support you with dignity and respect.


Your Traditions Will Be Respected

Valuing our client and their individual needs is at the heart of our service. This time for your loved one is an investment. An investment into their health and well-being, their future and the stability and peace of your family. We have worked with clients and their families from all backgrounds – we have witnessed the transformation of the client in terms of their health, repairing family relationships, growing spiritually, and working to maintain rehabilitation.


Specific Dietary Requirements & Prayer Time

Our service provides specific dietary requirements for everyone, such as halal, kosher, vegan or vegetarian options. We can also support clients with religious observances upon the request of the client. All clients can feel comfortable that their religious practice is completely respected and supported by the staff at Cassiobury Court.


Special Requirements for Religious Residents

It can be a daunting prospect to enter a rehab facility if you don’t know whether your religious practices can be catered for. Rest assured that we ensure that you can practice your religion as you receive treatment at our centre.
