Long established and successful specialist residential drug and alcohol treatment service provider.

Boswyns is a medically-supported detoxification and stabilisation service in a new, purpose build facility, whilst Bosence offers a programme of residential rehabilitation, based on the 12 Step model, in a converted farmhouse.

We also work with those with substance misuse and mental health problems at the same time; this is provided by our multi-disciplinary team, led by our mental health and general trained nursing team and overseen by our Specialist Medical Officer, who is a Psychiatrist.
We are in the process of building a 3rd unit on our site, which will be 4 bedroom residential recovery hub, designed to meet the needs of a relatively small number of people whose needs (related to alcohol and substance misuse) are complex. These will include families, where one or both parents are in active addiction and are reluctant to seek treatment for fear of losing access to their children, veterans with alcohol or substance dependency and PTSD, and young adults. These disparate groups will go through treatment in separate tranches (not together).
