Talk to Frank - Honest information about drugs

Yeldall Manor

About this service

The First-Stage Yeldall Manor programme provides residential rehabilitation for men aged between 18 and 65 who want to overcome serious drug or alcohol substance misuse issues.

The First-Stage programme lasts 12-24 weeks and, on completion of it, there is the opportunity to continue on to the second-stage programme as preparation for living independent lives drugs, alcohol and crime-free.

The First-Stage has two main objectives:

  • to help residents understand and begin to deal with the problems which lie behind their addiction
  • to help residents to develop the character qualities, relational skills, personal disciplines and work ethic upon which long-term abstinence can be built

Residents’ places have to be funded. Normally this is through the drug or alcohol team in their area. Occasionally, it can be through probation or mental health services. In addition, we accept people who are privately funded, through themselves, their family or their church. For people who cannot obtain funding through any of these routes, our Good Samaritan Bursary Fund is able to fund the places of a small number of men, giving them a chance that they would not otherwise have.
