Passmores House has been managed since April 2011 by Westminster Drug Project, who provide drug and alcohol services in London and the South East, offering support, advice and treatment to all those affected by drug and alcohol use. A range of recovery-orientated services is available, including open access, non-residential rehabilitation and structured daycare, aftercare and specialist alcohol, outreach and family and children services. Passmores House has developed a treatment programme which has been accredited by the European Association for the Treatment of Addiction UK (EATA). The organisation is designed to serve men and women aged 18 years upwards with drug or alcohol problems and all levels of dependency. It also has Federation of Drug and Alcohol Professionals (FDAP) accreditation.

The Detoxification and Stabilisation Unit at Passmores House is a safe, supportive and secure environment with 24-hour nursing, support and counselling staff. All residents receive a medical assessment and ongoing care plan. Treatments are designed to withdraw residents comfortably from addictive substances, using evidence-based national guidance. All facilities are on-site. The time needed for detoxification can vary from 10 to 28 days. In addition to detoxification, they offer an opiate substitute stabilisation programme for those who need to achieve stabilisation in a residential setting to complete a community-based treatment programme. In addition to pharmacotherapy, a range of healthy living and complementary programmes is offered. The Detoxification wing is a self-contained nine-bed unit. All bedrooms are en suite. Residents share a communal lounge and dining space.

 The Rehabilitation Programme at Passmores House provides intensive therapeutic treatment alongside preparation for sustained recovery and community re-integration. The focus is on tackling primary barriers to ongoing recovery and preparing for re-engagement with education, training or employment. Each resident has a personalised rehabilitation plan and takes part in a 12-week or 24-week programme. Residents then work to achieve their goals through individual or couple counselling, group therapy, keyworking and education. The Rehabilitation wing provides a seven (single) bed unit, also en suite. Two bedrooms have disabled access. Communal areas include lounge, conservatory, gym, dining room and kitchen. 

The cost of treatment may be paid by your local authority if you have an agreement with them that that is the right next step for you. It can also be funded privately by you or your family or other sponsor.
