Referral procedure

After ALL of the criteria for application have been met, enquiries and referrals are usually made by the applicant himself. Elligibilty details are taken and checked.

 

Information is also given about vacancies. Charis tries not to operate a waiting list.

 

If a referral goes forward, an interview date is given within one week if at all possible.

 

The procedure usually involves one main interview. However, the interview procedure is not always straightforward and may require a further meeting.

 

The applicant should normally be alcohol and drug free on the day to undertake the interview procedure or can be in the final stages of a detoxification process. However, interviews can be arranged prior to detoxification if agreed with Charis staff.

 

For referral and enquiries about referral please call between 9 am & 5 pm on 020 7790 3040. You can also write to: Charis, 31 Mile End Road, LONDON, E1 4TP. It is possible to leave telephone messages outside of office hours.

 

Alcohol / Drug Test on Admission:

 

Applicants need to be alcohol & drug free on admission (this includes anti-depressants, tranquilisers, sleeping tablets etc) and a full alcohol and drug test will be carried out. It is very important that the applicant is completely honest with the information he gives at this time. If necessary an admission delay can be arranged. (If results are inconsistent with the information given, the applicant will be asked to leave immediately).
