… home to recovery

Treatment services and supported housing for people with drug and alcohol problems



At Kairos Community Trust, we are dedicated to helping homeless men and women with drug and alcohol problems. We do this through our rehab programmes and our network of 29 supported Move-on houses, most of which are in south London.
Our core services provide: post-detox hostel accommodation, day programme rehab, residential rehab, supported housing and aftercare. Each service can be accessed separately or they can be combined to build individual treatment pathways over a period of time. All our services are delivered by experienced teams of qualified therapists, support workers and administrators.
Addiction and homelessness are twin problems, and we believe that the journey to recovery from drugs and alcohol begins in a safe, secure environment.


How to apply – and plan your individual treatment pathway to recovery: Overview


The Kairos pathways will lead you, post-detox, to rehab, then supported housing and on towards independent living.

Kairos Community Trust has 29 post-rehab, sober-living move-on houses with 177 beds in six London boroughs: Brent, Lambeth, Lewisham, Merton, Southwark and Wandsworth. Residents have ongoing access to support workers and make planned moves to independent living after two years.


I arrived at Linden Grove after 15 years of skips, squatting and park benches. At first nothing was right but after a month my attitude completely changed. I was interested and I was learning. I wanted to get better and was willing to work for it. And the staff never gave up on me, no matter what!

At Kairos, I stayed off drink and drugs for more than a few weeks for the first time and I became open, honest and willing for the first time in my life. I haven’t looked back since. Life in recovery isn’t always easy abut it’s better than any bad day I had in addiction.

Do you know where I have been? The journey back has been long and humbling. Now, in my shared Kairos house, I’ve come to understand and appreciate the value of the ‘little’ things in life: health, shelter, security, food, my own room, and few good friends. I am a prince but I have no need of a castle.
