Clouds House

Clouds has been a life-saving sanctuary for sufferers of addiction since 1983. We provide high quality care and our team is connected to the world’s leading experts and institutions in the research and teaching of addiction treatment. Everyone you meet at Clouds – the expert medical team, the specialist counsellors, the caring housekeeping staff, and the welcoming receptionists – is rooting for you.

Our tried and tested interpersonal group therapy model provides a rich and safe environment in which clients gain valuable insights into their relationships with themselves, other people and the substances or behaviours of their addiction.

On average, we have a completion rate of over 70%, and 95% of our clients tell us their treatment at Clouds was either ‘very good’ or ‘excellent’. More than 90% of our clients are drug and alcohol free on discharge.

Meet the Clouds House clinical team.


Our aftercare programme is designed to support our clients to make the transition away from residential treatment and enable them to stay in touch with others who are making the challenging journey of recovery from addiction. We involve families in their loved one’s treatment because we know that connection and communication loosen addiction’s grip. 

The Clouds House Renewal Programme

Are you struggling with the everyday stresses and strains of modern life? The Clouds House Renewal Programme is an opportunity to reconnect. Over a period of between four and seven days, you will immerse yourself in a residential treatment experience whilst revisiting the philosophies underpinning a robust recovery.

Held at Clouds House, alongside clients currently in recovery, our Renewal Programme will engage you in interpersonal group therapy to better understand how your methods of communication affect the quality of your relationships and practise your learning within your recovery community.

You might be looking at the areas of your life in recovery in which you are feeling stuck or simply reminding yourself as to how recovery can be a rich and rewarding experience. Alternatively, you might feel that you are looking for spiritual connection in a busy world running on autopilot.

The Renewal Programme is available to people recovering from all forms of addiction who are abstinent and over the age of 18. You do not have to be a former client of Clouds House.
