Every year we bid farewell to over a hundred clients who have successfully completed their treatment programme, built up several months of abstinence from drugs and alcohol, improved their health, rebuilt family ties and changed the whole direction of their life.


A centre of excellence

We have one of the best success rates in the country for working with clients with complex needs, and have a reputation for highly skilled staff, excellent facilities and high quality care. We are pioneers in trauma-informed approaches, asking people ‘what’s happened to you?’ rather than ‘what’s wrong with you?’

Residential drug and alcohol rehabilitation

We offer residential addiction treatment for men and women. Our holistic, person-centred approach includes cognitive therapy within a therapeutic community setting where we can address the physical, mental and emotional well-being of people seeking to recover from addiction.  We also offer a specialist women’s programme.

Women’s Community Services

Our Nelson Trust Women’s Centres in Gloucester, Swindon, Bristol and Bridgwater provide a women-only space where a wide range of support needs can be addressed in a safe and supportive environment. Our Women’s Community Services are countywide across Gloucestershire, Swindon, Wiltshire, Somerset and Wales. Services are trauma-informed and gender responsive providing holistic support for women and their families.


We can work with people who have a dual mental health diagnosis, people in the criminal justice system, and we have a dedicated Women’s Service for those women who would benefit from treatment in a female-only environment
