Nelson Trust

The Nelson Trust is a Centre of Excellence with over 30 years’ experience of bringing self-belief, hope and long term recovery to individuals and families affected by addiction.

We have four residential recovery houses, all located in the peaceful Cotswold Hills in Stroud, Gloucestershire. Two of the houses accommodate both men and women, and the other two houses are for women only. Programmes last for 12 – 24 weeks.

We are an abstinence-based, trauma-informed service. This means that the principles of safety, trustworthiness, choice, collaboration and empowerment are at the heart of everything we do. We build life-changing therapeutic relationships with clients to enable them to achieve their goals: to recover and to thrive.

As well as the therapeutic programmes, there are fitness, health and well-being activities, and opportunities to learn, train and volunteer with our Recovery Academy. We also offer resettlement housing for those choosing to stay in the area.
