Our Approach


We are a drug and alcohol peer led treatment centre so if you have a problem with addiction we can help. Our approach is based on a peer led therapeutic community model of treatment and rehabilitation where residents stay and live at our small residential community, with placements ranging from 4 to 12 weeks depending on an individual's detox and rehab requirements.

Everyone at ESH Community has their own personal experience of addiction. We absolutely know what we're talking about. Not because we've been taught it, but through our own experience. We understand the feelings that addicts have and we understand how difficult it is to start recovery and take control of your life. Although it may seem this is a mountain to climb we know how to make the ascent less steep.

We understand addiction. We understand cross-addiction. We understand relapse. But, most importantly, we understand what is required to maintain an abstinence-based sustained recovery.

Our goal is to encourage psychological and lifestyle changes to enable people to maintain a drug and alcohol free lifestyle. The treatment approach is based on professional and peer support. Residents are expected to contribute to the residential community and to their own recovery by actively participating in educational activities, group sessions, therapeutic duties and regular individual counselling therapy.

It's well recognised that peer-led recovery offers the best chance of regaining, and sustaining, a life free of alcohol, drugs and other addictions. Sustainability is vital. There are many many people who manage to stop drinking, gambling or using drugs for periods, sometimes long periods of time. The problem isn't the stopping, it's staying stopped that is the issue. Addiction is a progressive illness. It never gets better. Unless addressed it just gets worse.

We are people who have experienced the horrors and terrors of addiction first-hand, so we have a practical understanding of addiction as an illness, it's not a weakness.

Further Information

Our referrals manager can be contacted on 01926 811702 for more details about residential placements or alternatively send us a message using our Contact Us form.

A pre-admission Referral and Assessment Form needs to be completed for all prospective residents, this can be done in several ways. The form can be downloaded and completed using Microsoft Word or other compatible document editors and emailed back to us. 

Alternatively, if circumstances allow it may be more appropriate to complete the form during a pre-admission visit to the facility which also allows us to have a face to face discussion about expectations and needs.

We can also complete an initial referral over the phone to ensure there are no fundamental issues that would prevent admission.
