Living at Chandos
Addiction is a painful, internal and isolated state of low grade depression. The sharing of space is an intrinsic part of learning to live with the self and with other people. We see this as a critical component of avoiding relapse. The objective is integration rather than separation and involvement rather than detachment.
Residents who successfully commit to this approach are able to continue the process of change once they move on to a healthier and more fulfilling life.
The house is first and foremost a home, a shared home. Yes, there are house rules, but these are kept to a minimum and mostly comprise common sense, safety and respect for self and others.
Chandos is a 10-bed house, arranged in triple, double and single rooms all with ensuite shower and toilet facilities. Bed linen is provided.
Communal spaces include the kitchen/dining room, living room, group room and a sheltered courtyard garden with smoking area.
To view the bedrooms and other areas at Chandos House, please see our virtual tour.
Our policy is to help men who recognise that alcohol and/or other substances are a problem for them, and who have a genuine commitment to doing something about it.
In the unlikely event that we are unable to help because the applicant needs more than we can offer, we work to find other suitable options which may be available.
Please do not hesitate to contact a member of our team for further information.
