Male & Female Rehab Clinic

We aim to improve the lives of people affected by chemical dependency by providing quality, affordable abstinence-based treatment.

Since 2003, we have been helping clients to build new lives for themselves and their families, free from the disease of addiction. As a small, private treatment centre we are able to really get to know our clients and ensure that we fulfil their needs effectively.

The treatment programme is delivered by our team of qualified and experienced counsellors. In addition to their professional qualifications most of our therapists have personal experience of addiction and the recovery process. The result is that the counselling provided is not only of a very high quality, it is delivered with a passion for recovery that is infectious.

Using the twelve steps as a framework, a variety of proven therapeutic approaches are used to lay the foundations for a lifelong recovery process. The programme is delivered at the Day Centre. Our residential properties are a short distance away. Our large, comfortable houses are staffed and monitored at all times and offer a safe, supervised environment in which to relax and concentrate on getting well. Clients experience a more realistic lifestyle than they might in a larger, more institutionalised centre. They enjoy many opportunities to develop and practice their sober living skills in a relaxed, domestic setting whilst remaining under the care of our team of House Managers.

Our location on the border with Cheshire and North Wales puts us within easy reach of a wide range of leisure and exercise opportunities which we make use of as part of the weekly programme.
