A centre of excellence for alcohol treatment
Mount Carmel provides a safe, supportive, therapeutic and non-judgmental environment for people with serious alcohol problems who see abstinence as their only way forward. We are an 18 bedroom residential treatment centre located in South London, also offering day programmes, counselling and detox management. We take pride in the quality of care we offer. Our successful clients not only stop drinking - they change their lives.
We have 30 years’ experience of providing treatment for men and women who are addicted to alcohol. We address many addictions during treatment, including drugs, food, gambling and exercise and can also provide specialist mental health treatment.
But, whatever their other important issues, all our clients have alcohol as their primary addiction. This means all clients identify with each other and with the same core problem - alcohol addiction, and how to achieve abstinent recovery.
When you come to Mount Carmel, you will find that we treat you throughout as an individual. Everyone here - both staff and your peers - is committed to your recovery, we are inclusive of everyone and we won’t give up on you. We have helped hundreds of our clients into recovery and we can help you too.
