Hope House is a beautiful Grade II listed Georgian house, located in a peaceful corner of South West London, close to Clapham Common. In this elegant and spacious home we can treat up to 23 women at a time – offering each of them the personal space they need to recover.
Hope House is a safe, secure and comfortable place for women to recover from drug or alcohol dependence and receive additional support for other compulsive disorders. Many of the women who come to Hope House have a history of difficult relationships and find an all-female environment a supportive place to work through issues and begin the process of recovery.
Hope House welcomes women who are aged 18 years or over, have undergone detoxification from drink and/or drugs, and have been free from all mood-altering substances for at least two weeks. Priority is given to women who have completed a first-stage treatment programme, and it helps if they're familiar with the 12-Step abstinence-based approach to recovery.
Our residential treatment programmes are for 12 or 24 weeks, we welcome private paying clients, those on private medical insurance schemes, and those in receipt of state funding. We may also be able to offer bursaries and part bursaries to some clients thanks to the generous support of our donors.
The treatment programme entails:
  • Planned individualised treatment with regular review based on a 12-Step abstinence model
  • Daily group therapy
  • One to one counseling
  • Relapse prevention training
  • Life skills training
  • Family based work and facilitated meetings with family members
  • Assistance with housing and resettlement
  • Education and support relating to food disorders
  • Health education workshops
  • Art therapy
  • Reflexology, yoga and visits to a local gym
  • A ‘buddy’ system for mutual support
  • Participation in the running of the house eg, shopping, tidying and budgeting
  • Structured aftercare

Hope House aligns itself with formalised standards such as Quality in Alcohol and Drugs Services (QUADS) and Drug and Alcohol National Occupational Standards (DANOS).
