Professional staff and trained volunteers in our centres across Essex and Medway are experts in supporting people with addictions. We specialise in treatment and recovery support. We will give you the best possible support in your journey to recovery from the word go.

Open Road offers you a safe place to attend and discuss your issues. We don't judge and we see you in confidence.

Our centres are normally open from Monday to Friday between 0900-1700hrs with some evening clinics. If we are currently closed, and you want to take your first step towards recovery, you can complete a self referral online and we will get back to you within two working days to complete this stage with you.

Contact your nearest centre during opening hours in Basildon, Chelmsford, Clacton, Colchester, Harlow or Medway

I felt so much shame to say I have messed my life up and they gave me the tools to make a change. They were so non-judgemental, when you walk through those doors, they’re so controlled and good at what they do, they can answer any question, they have experienced it all. For us it’s so unknown, but they can catch us when we walk in there and make us feel safe
