Oxygen Recovery history
Oxygen Recovery is run by Druglink, a charity based in Hemel Hemsptead with the aim of improving the lives of people suffering from substance misuse problems, their families and their communities.
Druglink have operated Nascent House, a nine bed residential rehabilitation facility in Hemel Hempstead for a number of years. It previously offered a single treatment programme lasting three to six months for clients referred with problematic substance misuse issues. In 2014, having been open for nearly 30 years, Nascent House was considered to be old and ‘tired’. The building was in need of refurbishment and the therapy programme needed updating. We undertook a £30,000 make-over, redesigning the facility and therapy programme to ensure we could deliver the most up-to-date and effective residential rehabilitation service.
Our residential rehabiliation service was renamed 'Oxygen Recovery' and it has been designed to meet the needs of any client suffering from substance misuse issues at any point of their treatment journey, from dependence and addiction through to re-integration into normal living.
We developed the Oxygen Recovery pathway - five treatment stages starting at residential detox, progressing through rehab and aftercare, to supported housing before clients return to independent living and 'move on'. We have a number of properties in which we can offer accommodation throughout the recovery pathway.
