Referrals and Eligibility

We offer supported accommodation to men who are stable on methadone or buprenorphine (subutex) who aim to be drug-free within three to six months.

Referrals are usually taken from a person’s key worker, social worker, doctor or hostel worker; however, people can also self-refer.

You can contact us here.

You feel part of a community. It’s a great location. Being able to do it on your own doorstep with trust and freedom is fantastic.
