The people who call Edwin house home may previously have had numerous attempts at treatment for their substance misuse, and are now beginning to experience the long-term physical, mental and emotional consequences of their chaotic life-styles.

We offer them dignity and security and believe it is never too late to improve their quality of life.

Our philosophy

The philosophy at the heart of Edwin House is one of harm reduction in its broadest sense. We acknowledge that substance misuse is a chronic relapsing condition and seek to empower residents to achieve their own recovery by providing flexible, tailored packages of care.

Compassion underpins all aspects of support we provide. That is why responding to individual needs and ensuring every person feels valued and part of a community is a high priority for us.
