Care Homes

What kind of service do we offer? 

At Brooke Drive, we provide a residential detoxification service (CQC registered) for men and women with a dual diagnosis of mental ill health and alcohol/drug dependence.  We work in partnership with the South London and Maudsley NHS Foundation Trust. 

Where Are we based?

Our service is In Lambeth, near Elephant and Castle. 2 minutes walk from Elephant and Castle station (Underground, mainline and bus)

What Do we provide?

In partnership with The South London and Maudsley Hospital we provide clinical, medically managed detoxification programmes for adults over 18 who require assisted withdrawal from addictive substances from any combination of alcohol, heroin, recreational drugs, prescription drugs, stimulants such as cocaine and crack cocaine, solvents and cannabis.

Our partnership with SLaM allows us to provide safe detoxification for treatment-resistent drug and alcohol users, whose health has become a critical concern. This includes people with advanced liver disease, diabetes, cardiovascular diseases, DVT and blood-borne viruses. We also provide pregnant women with clinically supervised detoxification from alcohol and/or drugs.

We provide a rich and varied recovery programme, with 1-2-1 and group work elements, complementary therapies (a range of massage techniques and acupuncture), health information sessions, recreation time and life skills sessions.

Working closely with care managers we ensure that our clients move on from Brook Drive with a plan in place - including the move on to residential rehabilitation, day programmes in their area and eventually returning home.


Equinox Brook Drive provides a safe and comfortable environment for our clients. We offer a relaxed setting with recreational facilities. Our single rooms are brightly decorated and warm, offering all our clients privacy and comfort during their stay.  We allow pets to stay with our Service Users at Equinox Brook Drive. This provides reassurance for pet owners whilst they undergo their detoxification.

How can the service be accessed?
