Location and Profile
This is a brand-new clinic (opened spring 2015) operated by the owners of an already successful clinic in Bristol. It is located in the beautiful Cotswolds area of Gloucestershire, in a quiet town, and includes plenty of wide-open space suitable for peaceful serenity and outdoor activities. This is a detox and primary care clinic only; tertiary, secondary and aftercare programmes are provided by the organisation’s Bristol clinic.
This new clinic occupies a fully refurbished building that includes state-of-the-art amenities combined with modern living. There is enough outdoor space to offer an equine therapy programme as well, and additional outdoor therapies will be added to in the future. Note that all the clients treated here are participating in treatment of their own free will. The clinic does not accept clients forced into treatment by social services, prison, or probation.

The staff here are very aware that their clients are looking for serious help for serious problems in an environment that is positive, safe, and discreet. They also know clients are looking for a certain level of comfort during their stays. The staff work very hard to provide medical and therapeutic treatments that meet individual needs while being as comprehensive as possible. They are open to new approaches as well. All staff members exhibit genuine care and concern for the clients they serve.
The clinic is a 12-bedroom residential clinic offering private rooms for each client. With a focus on individual comfort, the rooms are discreetly furnished and decorated. The facility includes a shared kitchen and dining room facility, meeting room for group therapy sessions, a relaxation room, and outdoor spaces. As a newly refurbished structure, the facility is very modern and comfortable.
Treatment Team and Programme
This is a fully medicalised treatment facility, meaning appropriate medical professionals are on staff to care for individual client health and well-being. The treatment team also includes trained therapists and support staff with plenty of experience in detox and primary care. Therapies are offered on a group and individual basis, but each client is thoroughly assessed prior to beginning treatment in order to determine the best course of action. Therapies can include everything from cognitive behavioural therapy to group counselling.
Best Suited For
As a clinic not accepting forced clients, this treatment facility is ideal for individuals looking for detox and therapeutic treatments in a discreet setting where safety and comfort are of utmost importance. While more expensive than other clinics, it offers treatment at an affordable price point. Those with private health insurance are good candidates for this facility.
This is a multi-story facility with first-floor access for the disabled.
