ESH Community – Affordable Detox and Rehab

 

ESH

 

Due to central government budget cuts for Drug and Alcohol services across the country local authorities are looking at shorter length residential stays, in response we’ve modified our treatment programme and prices for 2020 to fit this changing landscape.

 

We’re now accepting residents for minimum 28 days for private and local authority placements. Give us a call to see how we can help.
