Our experienced leadership team:
CEO and Founder
Paul has a wealth of experience gained over the last 15 years delivering alcohol and drug support services.
Paul is the registered manager at ESH Community treatment centre and also manages our admissions.
In 2009 Paul founded ESH Works which was one of the first peer led support organisations in the UK to link directly into commissioned drug and alcohol service providers.
He has worked closely with the National Treatment Agency (NTA) now Public Health England and has made significant contributions along with other peer led organisations across the country to establish the concept of peer led recovery. This approach to recovery is now accepted and promoted by the government as one of the most effective methods of treating addiction.
Paul understands what support and life skills are required to sustain long term recovery from addiction and the psychosocial interventions that are involved to be able to address the root causes. The ESH Community residential rehab programme of support and aftercare encompasses that experience and knowledge.
Paul has also championed the implementation of a Dual Diagnosis protocol pathway in Warwickshire which has established the framework of joint support required for people with drug and alcohol issues alongside mental health problems.
