Find out more about Hafan Wen

Hafan Wen is a purpose-built in-patient detoxification unit, built in 1997 on the site of the Wrexham Maelor Hospital. It provides medically-managed clinical treatment support to those working towards a substance-free lifestyle.

Clinical provision is led by a consultant psychiatrist, and the service is staffed 24/7 by qualified nurses and an experienced team of support workers. The therapeutic programme, which supports clients through detoxification, is led by a cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) specialist who has developed a range of evidence-based psychosocial interventions.
