Inpatient Detoxification Unit

Nottingham, Edwin House, 56 Millers Court, Nottingham, NG7 3lp

About Us

The Inpatient Detoxification Unit (IPDU) comprises of 14 beds for people in need of medically assisted drug and/or alcohol detoxification.

Based at Edwin House, a specialist care and reablement facility in Nottingham, The IPDU provides a range of individualised treatments for the detoxification from both illicit/licit drugs and alcohol.

Service users will be supported in their recovery through a robust offer of timetabled, evidenced based and social interventions. This will include input from Leicester-based social enterprise Dear Albert, who will facilitate a peer led recovery programme, group and 1-2-1 work.

What We Do

We provide safe, friendly and effective treatment for people who wish to change their relationship with drugs and alcohol – offering a vital step on a much longer journey to recovery.

Our philosophy

The philosophy at the heart of the service is one of harm reduction in its broadest sense. We acknowledge that substance misuse is a chronic relapsing condition and seek to empower those who come to our service to achieve their own recovery by providing evidenced based, high quality, flexible, tailored packages of care.

Compassion underpins all aspects of the treatment we provide. That is why responding to individual needs and ensuring every person feels valued and part of a community is a high priority for us.

Our service respects individual personal preferences and we strive to provide for these within an environment that is safe, effective, caring, responsive and well led.


We are contracted to provide Inpatient detoxification services for Nottingham, Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland.  Referrals to the service are only accepted through Turning Point for service users from Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland, and through the Nottingham Recovery Network and Clean Slate for service users from Nottingham.

We can also offer Spot purchase and privately funded treatment places to people from anywhere in the UK.
