Abbeycare are delighted to announce the appointment of Billy Henderson as our Service Engagement Manager.

Billy joins Abbeycare after a career spanning more than two decades in the addiction recovery sector.

He spent the last two years as manager of Calderglen House in High Blantyre, Lanarkshire, and previously worked at The Priory in Glasgow for nineteen years, where he was initially a senior addictions therapist before going on to manage the hospital’s Addictions Service.


In his new role, Billy will develop Abbeycare’s existing relationships with Alcohol and Drug Partnerships and care managers to ensure quality of service and ongoing engagement.

He will also work closely with the facility’s admissions and outreach teams to ensure clients are fully prepared and supported in the days and weeks leading up to the start of their recovery journey.


Paul Bowley, chief executive of Abbeycare, said:



"We are incredibly excited to welcome Billy to our dedicated multi-disciplinary team and are pleased that he has chosen to bring his expertise to Abbeycare.

Billy Henderson said:
"Abbeycare have been a leading provider of residential alcohol and drug rehabilitation services for approaching twenty years and I have engaged with them several times during my own career.

"I am therefore delighted to be able to join their team and look forward to building on my existing good relationships with the alcohol and drug partnerships and playing my part in ensuring that their clients are best prepared to start their recovery journey."

Welcome to the team Billy!
