Background to this inspection

Updated 7 November 2022

This service provides community based care. The service was initially registered to provide care and treatment to clients with substance use problems, including community detoxification arrangements and maintenance treatment. This was provided on a private basis.

The service had then registered additionally to provide an assessment and treatment service for adults who may have attention deficit disorders. This was predominantly provided through commissioning arrangements and included assessment, diagnosis and treatment initiation and review.

At the time of this inspection, the substance misuse service had seen less than ten patients and the attention deficit disorder service had seen 70 patients.

The service was registered with CQC in 2021 and had a registered manager.

This was the first inspection for this service.
