Bristol will lose its last male rehab centre which has provided "life-saving" services for the last 35 years.
Chandos House in Redland, an all-male rehabilitation centre, is closing due to a lack of funds and will leave the city without a residential addiction treatment centre.
They help men overcome alcohol and drug addiction, but also help them come to terms with childhood trauma and re-connect with their bodies.
Managers at the centre are blaming the closure on the lack of local authority funding for rehab therapies.
David Hill spent eight months at Chandos House: "This place has done so much for the last 25 years. Without this place Bristol won't be the same, considering it's the last rehab in the city. So many men have come in and come out a different man."
Broadway Lodge in Weston-super-Mare is another rehabilitation centre in the region and its CEO believes the poor and vulnerable are missing out on vital care because councils cannot provide the funding.
As a result of these cuts from central government, a rising number of patients at the lodge pay for treatment themselves.
A week's stay can cost between £1500 and £2000, with most people needing to stay for at least six weeks to have effective treatment.
33-year-old Jason Mann is a patient at Broadway Lodge. He said:
