The Mews House
The Mews House was founded in 2012, and offers a long-term care pathway for London-based clients who are returning home from first stage rehab, either elsewhere in the UK, or abroad.
We offer evidence-based therapy, supported accommodation and, uniquely in the London private sector, an extended continuum of care that includes residential secondary and tertiary.
Most Mews House residents will be some months into their treatment process and have been referred to The Mews House by a leading primary or secondary rehab. Able to take a lot of responsibility for their recovery, The Mews House will help with the adjustment to life in London, and to feeling properly supported around abstinence, food, and returning to work or education.
Regardless of how long you have been in treatment for, the hard work really begins when you come home to London.
Our philosophy is that long-term recovery is best supported by long-term treatment close to where you live.
Being located in the heart of South Kensington, we are ideally placed to help London-based clients safely navigate the transition back to their day-to-day lives and home.
At The Mews House, our job is to provide a safe base from which to guide our clients through their recovery journey.
The Mews House’s carefully designed therapeutic programmes are 12-Step based, and include dedicated individual counselling, group therapy, yoga, art, mindfulness, Kirtan chanting, meditation, family counselling, educational workshops, and targeted written assignments.
The set-up there is so brilliant and everyone there is so supportive and knowledgeable
Residents are required to be actively involved with our recovery community, complete written assignments punctually, attend 12-Step fellowship meetings, and permit family involvement.
Our work is done when a client has created the recovery architecture needed to support sustainable and long-term recovery, in their home environment. This will take time.
The treatment package includes a weekly Family Programme for loved ones of our residents. This is an important opportunity for family members to become involved with the therapeutic process, and obtain their own support and education.
Residents are urine and drug tested every week. We require all residents to be abstinent from mood-altering substances.
Once treatment has been completed, our clients are encouraged to attend Aftercare, which is free for life, and held on Monday nights. We also encourage family members to continue attending our weekly drop-in Family Programme.
We have elegant single and twin rooms, some with ensuite bathrooms, and free WiFi provided throughout.
There is no better place to consolidate your recovery than The Mews House.
