For family members and friends of the addicted, a crisis intervention is a means of bringing about an immediate, but highly controlled crisis for the affected in a family setting. Together, our clinical intervention team will go through the entire process.


Over the last few years there has been a sharp increase in the type, consistency and potency of new and more established substances (including some ‘legal highs’ and prescribed medications). This has lead to more people becoming dependent on substances, requiring detoxification, before fully engaging in the Primary programme at Charterhouse.


Primary residential treatment at Charterhouse is recommended for a minimum of 90 days, so that our clients can make maximum benefit of their Recovery Capital. We do appreciate that commitments, responsibilities and family sometimes creates a barrier to committing to 90 days and we therefore offer lesser terms.
