Tom Harrison House is a Liverpool-based addiction recovery centre for military veterans, reservists, emergency services personnel, and their families. The abstinence-based, 12-week recovery programme provides support via a bespoke model which aims to treat addiction within the context of those who have a history of military service – with emphasis placed on the role of co-occurring trauma, safety, confidentiality, and camaraderie, as well as reintegration into “civilian” communities.

The project is framed as a community of veterans who possess shared experiences, perspectives, resources and potential blocks to recovery, and who also share the ability to overcome their issues through a highly structured and intensive programme, and with the mutual support of the group. We work to help our veteran clients to make strides toward improving their mental, physical and emotional health, and to regain the sense of community and camaraderie that they had previously experienced during their active service.

The project is framed as a community of veterans who possess shared experiences, perspectives, resources and potential blocks to recovery, and who also share the ability to overcome their issues through a highly structured and intensive programme, and with the mutual support of the group.

Programme elements are diverse and are designed to best reflect the needs of ex-military personnel – the weekly timetable includes physical training sessions, nutrition groups, equine therapy, 5-a-side football, motivational speaker sessions, family sessions, and an art/choir group. Alongside these activities are more traditional elements such as group therapy and personal assignment work. The programme also includes Moral Reconation Therapy (MRT) and Seeking Safety groups each week – evidence-based methods that are found to be effective in veteran-specific rehabilitation centres in the USA.

Accommodation is provided for the duration of the programme. Support staff can also assist clients with associated issues, which may include medical issues, move-on housing, benefit entitlements, etc.

The service was set up in 2013 by Lt Col Carl Meyer who is a consultant military orthopaedic surgeon. Lt Col Carl Meyer has served as a Medical Officer in both the Gulf War and more recently in Afghanistan, where he was involved in treating local civilians, as well as injured troops. He has special clinical interests in hip and knee replacement and in trauma; his military work has informed his practice and driven his understanding of the experiences and expectation of veteran patients.

Col Meyer is supported by a team of highly skilled clinical colleagues with a passion for veterans’ medicine. A dedicated centre for the treatment of patients has recently been approved following a fundraising campaign. The building is set to be opened in the early part of 2022.
