At PROMIS, the client is at the centre of everything. They receive a bespoke treatment plan that has been specifically designed to meet their needs and, whatever they’re looking for, the settings are second-to-none.

Clients can choose between the tranquility of Hay Farm, a 12-bed facility set in 12 acres of land on Kent’s breathtaking North Downs, or PROMIS London, an exclusive six-bed facility across three beautiful Kensington mews houses. Hay Farm is a haven of peace, surrounded by nature reserves and woodlands, while PROMIS London offers a quiet, elegant setting that’s still only minutes away from world-class business and leisure facilities. This makes it ideal for those clients who need treatment options that allow them to stay on top of their professional commitments.

Both of these settings create a warm, safe and serene atmosphere that’s the perfect environment for recovery and self-care. Each offers clients the ability to get away from the distractions and triggers of everyday life, and focus completely on their physical and emotional recovery. Both also provide nutritious gourmet menus that cater for any dietary requirements and are expertly made from fresh, locally sourced produce.

Unlike many facilities, one-on-one therapy is available every day, and clients also have weekly sessions with a psychiatrist throughout the length of their stay. While the residential settings are abstinence-based for substance misuse clients, there is no rigid or dogmatic approach. Staff are equally comfortable delivering SMART, 12-step or ACT-based programmes, or anything else that the client feels will benefit them from the full range of evidence-based treatments.

There’s also a relaxed, comfortable and individualised detox programme that incorporates a full medical assessment combined with proper nutrition, rest and 24-hour nursing care. Clients can be collected from anywhere in the country, and an extensive family programme is also available.

In addition to substance misuse, PROMIS offers a range of proven, effective treatments for issues such as depression, anxiety, stress, burnout, eating disorders, problem gambling, pain management, relationship difficulties, OCD and other compulsive or addictive behaviours. Expert medical and psychiatric care is combined with evidence-based psychotherapeutic treatments in individual and group sessions, designed to create a fully integrated treatment programme to facilitate maximum personal growth and development. In every case, the structure, intensity and pace of treatment is tailored to the specific needs of each individual client.

The range of therapies on offer in each setting is characterised by choice and flexibility, and staff to client ratios are almost one-to-one, allowing for unparalleled levels of care and attention. In addition to trauma therapies such as EMDR and somatic work, clients can choose from CBT, dialectical behaviour therapy (DBT) and experience-based approaches such as equine-assisted psychotherapy, which allows people to interact with horses in their natural environment as a vital tool for emotional growth and development.

Treatment at PROMIS is also defined by an absence of rigid programmes that clients are expected to adhere to. The philosophy is all about working around the client’s needs, which means that people can choose to split their treatment into a series of shorter visits instead of one prolonged stay if they prefer.

The highly experienced, multi-disciplinary staff team at PROMIS includes doctors, clinical psychiatrists, therapists, nurses and healthcare assistants. The team are specialists in dual diagnosis, allowing them to provide expert care to people struggling with both substance misuse and mental health issues, and PROMIS prides itself on a compassionate and supportive approach that is genuinely non-judgemental. As with anything, this level of quality comes at a price, and around 90 per cent of PROMIS clients will pay for their own care.

PROMIS is a family-owned business that has been operating for more than 25 years, and most admissions are the result of recommendations from previous clients or other treatment professionals.
