Coronavirus information

Due to the coronavirus outbreak and the ‘social distancing’ guidance issued by the government, we have needed to reduce and adapt the usual face-to-face support that we provide so we can keep our service users and staff safe.

We will continue to talk with you and help you even if coming into our service isn’t possible.

To check what support is currently available and if there are any changes to our opening times, please contact us on the details below and we’ll do our best to make sure you still get the help you need.


Passmores House is a recovery community for men and women aged 18 years and above with drug/alcohol problems and all levels/types of dependency. Passmores House is registered by the Care Quality Commission (CQC) to deliver our detoxification and residential rehabilitation programmes which help you return to a full and active lifestyle, free from dependency.
