Passmores House is a 23 bed integrated treatment and recovery service in Harlow, Essex, providing inpatient stabilisation, detoxification, and a primary rehabilitation programme which runs for either 12 or 24 weeks. Longer programmes focusing on reintegration are also available. 

During this time our residents stabilise, recuperate and develop a strong foundation from which to continue their recovery when they leave Passmores, with support from services in their local area. Aftercare is available for people who resettle in the area.

Historic building

Passmores House was once a bicycle museum. Today the historic building houses state of the art facilities after thorough renovation. Redeveloped by award winning community architect John McCormack, of Hazle McCormack Young LLP, Passmores House is a spacious modern environment combining comfort with robust safety and security features.

First class facilities

At Passmores House we have 23 bed units providing both detox and rehab services.

The Detoxification wing is a self-contained unit. Residents share communal lounges and dining space.

The Rehabilitation wing provides another self-contained unit on site. One bedroom has disabled access. Shared communal areas include lounges, conservatory, dining room and kitchen. Other utility rooms in this part of the house include a conference room, group therapy rooms, a complementary therapy room and a medical surgery.

Ideal location

Passmores House is in an ideal location near the centre of Harlow. It is easily accessible by car and public transport and yet is set in a park with its own walled gardens, pond and footpaths. This setting is highly conducive to recovery and wellbeing.

We welcome all adults with drug and alcohol problems

All cultural and ethnic groups are welcome. We have identified a gap in provision for young mothers in the local area and aim to make our services highly accessible to them. We also provide provision for offenders and liaise directly with the probation service.
