Help Support Chandos House!

Chandos House is a residential addiction treatment facility supporting men who’ve experienced psychological trauma in recovering from addiction, and in becoming positive members of society.

Due to government cuts, sadly 25% of the UK’s Rehab facilities have closed since 2008…Chandos House is the last remaining in Bristol but they too will have to close their doors soon if they don’t get the funding they need. 

We therefore encourage you to save this incredible place so that they can continue saving lives of societies most vulnerable by giving generously now!

We would like to spearhead an appeal to raise £93,600, enough money to pay for 4 men’s full course of treatment.

Broken down this looks as follows:

Full Appeal: £93,600 for 6 months of treatment for 4 men.

Treatment for each person costs £128 per day or £900 per week = £23,400 for a full sixth month course of treatment. Our prices are comparatively remarkably low.

Treatment includes:

Full bed and board: Chandos is a beautiful Victorian home with a garden, recreational facilities, therapy rooms, art room, large kitchen, lounge area, music, computer and art facilities. Just keep the operational side of this going is very costly with a large mortgage and all the bills to pay.

Nutritious meals: 3 x per day cooked by residents and training from professional chefs and nutritionists in healthy eating, cooking and life skills. Residents often arrive with few life skills in essential activities such as cooking and cleaning. Taking pride in these ‘Therapeutic Duties’ and working together as a community is one of the foundations of the Chandos ethos.

Gym Membership: Our holistic approach enables men to begin to find healthy ways of feeling good and connecting with their physical as well as emotional and spiritual selves.

Therapies: Our program is highly intensive. Residents receive:

Group Psychotherapy each morning, 2 hrs.

Creative Group Psychotherapy afternoon 2 hrs (after a communal lunch)  Drama, Music, Movement or Art Therapy.

Individual Psychotherapy 1 hr per week.

Massage/Bodywork 1 hr per week – Our Bodyworker specialises in addiction treatment for trauma and PTSD and Psycho-Education.

Acupuncture – every 2 weeks.

Family Therapy – every 2 weeks.

Shorter term therapies and activities such as Sound Bath Therapy, singing, dance, yoga and rock climbing trips.

After Care: It is an integral part of the Chandos ethos that the door is never shut. We continue to stay in touch with men for years after they have completed treatment and offer our services to them at no extra cost should they need it.

The reason for the intensity and 6 month time period is that 96 % of the men we treat have PTSD and are here to address their trauma, mostly for the first time in their lives… Chandos House has being helping men to do this for 35 years!
