Since Ocean Recovery first opened in 2014, our luxury 13-bed residential treatment facility has provided rehab residents with top-quality around the clock care and treatment. Located just outside Blackpool town centre, the clinic is an attractive 19th-century building with a beautiful sea view.

We offer a variety of developed and personalised addiction treatment programmes for clients seeking addiction recovery and aim to improve our client’s wellbeing long-term. With experience treating various drug and alcohol addictions, our team are available to support residents throughout their detox process and ensure that they are comfortable during their time at Ocean Recovery.

Our expert medical team also provides free aftercare programmes to maintain our client’s health and sobriety even after completing their stay with us.

Our specialist addiction recovery team has so far supported over 2000 clients to successfully complete their treatment whilst working closely with their families, employers, partners, and clients to tackle long-term substance addiction issues and break the cycle of addiction.

The alcohol and drug rehabilitation programmes we offer have been designed through years of research and experience which has helped us to identify and achieve excellent recovery results for each client.

Your Stay at Ocean Recovery

Our Blackpool rehab centre aims to promote patient recovery in a safe and relaxing setting. It’s important to us that patients feel at ease during their time at our centre, particularly as the drug or alcohol detox phase of treatment can be a challenging period. We are dedicated to providing our clients with excellent treatment which is why we have 24/7 recovery staffing and a family telephone helpline for client support.

We also believe that quality nutrition is a vital component of successful rehabilitation and detoxification. We employ a team of skilled chefs who design meal plans to create delicious nutritional meals which are suited to the needs of our clients.

Our Facility

Situated on Queens Promenade, Ocean Recovery benefits from extensive views of the sea and Blackpool beach. The building has in recent years undergone extensive refurbishment as well as an extension which offers a light, fresh accommodation which is perfect for residential recovery.

After a long day of therapy and drug or alcohol rehab treatment, clients at Ocean Recovery can either take advantage of our relaxing communal lounges and outside space with other residents at the centre or enjoy some alone time in the privacy of their private rooms.

CQC Accredited

Our centre is regularly inspected to ensure that clients receive an excellent quality of safe care. Ocean Recovery has been recently inspected and rated ‘Good’ by the independent Care Quality Commission (CQC) which regulates and inspects all health and social care services in England.

They rated our response, leadership, care, and effectiveness as good, and the inspector noted: “clients told us staff were kind, caring and supportive towards them. Clients were involved in decisions about their care and treatment.” These inspections ensure that our residents receive the best quality of care which are in line with government regulations.

Our Approach

It’s important to treat not just the physical elements of addiction but the psychological effects too. Our expert team covers a wide variety of techniques which have been proven to teach clients an understanding of their lifestyle and treat their addiction. These include:

  • Detox period
  • Psychological therapies (such as CBT, trauma and abuse counselling, relapse prevention, and group therapy)
  • Wellbeing therapies (music, sleep management, mindfulness)
  • Social activities (daily group walks, family visits, quiz nights)
  • Rehab aftercare

It is our varied and detailed approach to recovery which makes our treatment programme so successful. Contact us today to find out more about what we offer.

Don’t Just Take Our Word For It…

Here are a few of our client’s reviews:

Steve Tucker, age 59, said: “As a very long-term alcoholic and drug user, I never thought any rehab would work for me, but at Ocean I realised there was so much more to life than drinking and getting high.

I had 28 days in Ocean and after my detox, I started to really take in their ideas of living a sober drug-free life. All the staff were experienced, friendly and very knowledgeable about the world of addiction and helped me focus on changing my lifestyle.

I knew it was not going to be easy making such a big decision, but they guided me through a new thought process and a new way of thinking.

I am living a new happy exuberant life now, and I thank the Ocean team for that. It’s early days for me, 5 months sober but I will never forget the Ocean way.

The residency is in a very positive prominent position with lovely sea views, the accommodation is excellent, and the food menu is very healthy, variable, and delicious.

I would strongly recommend the Ocean Recovery Centre in Blackpool to anyone who wants to make a change and experience a bright new healthy focus on life.” – May 2021


Marie, age 26, said: “Thank you doesn’t seem enough – this has been the best thing I’ve ever done, and it is all down to your amazing team that I have come this far. My hard work starts now, but I am determined thanks to you all. See you at Aftercare.” – June 2021


Carole Barrie said: “This wonderful home showed me how to live a better life without the use of alcohol.

All the staff were person-centred and took the time to listen to your problems and made the time with great learning which was greatly structured to help and guide you.

Great food, really clean and great staff.” – April 2022
