The Abbeycare Group is delighted to announce the relocation of our Scottish clinic to new premises in Erskine from early 2021.

The Abbeycare Group has over 20 years’ experience supporting individuals starting their recovery journey and has been on an exhaustive 18 month search to find a new home to support the Company’s future growth.

Scotland is in the middle of not one, but two public health emergencies and the Abbeycare Group is determined to play a part in supporting the recovery community through this difficult time.

In 2019 there were 1,264 recorded drug related deaths – a rise of 6% on the previous year. These figures are three times the UK average and means Scotland has more drug deaths per capita than any other European country with cities of Dundee, Glasgow, Inverclyde and Edinburgh being the worst affected areas.

Our new premises in Erskine offer modern facilities, which include 35 private en-suite bedrooms and multiple communal spaces.

The clinic is currently undergoing an extensive refurbishment in preparation of our relocation from our current home in early 2021.

The relocation will allow us to continue to meet the existing demand for our service, while adding additional capacity and services including a bespoke 12-week programme.

As standard, clients accessing our services will receive a physical and psychological assessment, a supervised medical detox, individual and group therapies, one-to-one counselling use of our fitness centre and free aftercare.

Commenting on the move, The Abbeycare Group Chief Executive Paul Bowley said, “Scotland is currently in crisis and we have made the decision to invest heavily during these uncertain times to ensure that we can play our part in helping even more people begin their recovery journey.”
