Our recovery programme

Our recovery programme is an abstinence based therapeutic community model of intervention; peers driven, self-help, intensive and highly structured residential rehabilitation programme.

A main theme throughout is relapse prevention because recognizing triggers is essential to maintaining abstinence, health and well-being.

Our recovery programme is unique because we use TC Concepts linked to recovery outcomes together with a range of other therapeutic interventions, CBT, Outcome Star, Itep node mapping, The Arts, Music and complementary therapies.

Successful clients complete the programme and secure full-time employment and move out into independent living, no longer ‘in treatment’

We have delivered our recovery programme for over 44 years and have an extensive recovery community in Oxfordshire and beyond so we know we have the experience, skills, resources and commitment to deliver the recovery agenda.

We are commissioned by 23 Local Authority areas through a rigorous tender process together with spot purchase.


Clients must want to engage in an abstinent recovery programme of rehabilitation through active participation in our therapeutic community model

Referral and Assessment

Referral will be through a range of services; Drug/alcohol Services, social and health care teams, prison, probation, Courts, self-referral, GP

Once an application has been received our admission team will assess client suitability and motivation. If accepted the client will be allocated a key worker who will work with the client to develop a needs driven, outcome focused recovery care plan.


Being one of the first residential rehabs to develop a bespoke aftercare programme of activity, we continue to deliver excellent success rate post discharge of continued abstinence. Support upon completion of the programme is for an indefinite period. Clients tell us this is what makes us stand out from other interventions – we never say goodbye
