There is a high prevalence of addictions among the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender (LGBT) community. A significant number of LGBT people we have worked with have expressed the problems of institutionalised sexism and homophobia that they have experienced in residential rehabs. Addictions UK employs LGBT Staff and we can help clients with one to one therapy sessions.
None of our clients or contacts has gone so far as to accuse the management or ownership if prejudice – they have said that their fellow residents were a cross section of the UK society – and that they came across people who found homosexuality difficult. Others residents felt that their sexuality has played only a small role during their recovery and that no discrimination was perceived.
Addictions UK can help here – we understand that our society is made up of many and differing cultures and that generalist approaches will not be pertinent to all parts of the community. We are a diverse group of people and understand the sensitivities of sexuality. The need for the individual to address such issues can be critical to the success of his or her own road to recovery. Our programme embraces all issues of gender and sexuality within the programme of professional recovery work. We employ members of the LGBT community and specialise in working with minority groups – for that is the reason why Addictions UK was established.
Our recovery scheme is accessible on a 24 hour basis. Our unique one-to-one method permits the Addictions UK programme to be accessed at a time to suit all clients.
Addictions UK staff can deliver a personalised one-to-one ‘recovery programme’ into the home of a person who has problems with alcoholism or addictions. The telephone is used to bridge the gap and for us to be able to communicate with you. Thus there will be no person visiting your home, nor will you have to travel to a treatment centre. This programme is ideal for those individuals who live within close – knit communities who require utmost discretion.
The personalised teaching of the recovery / treatment programme will be complemented by the ongoing coaching element of our delivery method. The service is cheaper to access, is available on a 24 hour basis and is guaranteed to be personalised and confidential.
It is the ability of Addictions UK staff members to form close professional relationships with their clients that makes all the difference. Our staff members are all recovering addicts and alcoholics with good long-term sobriety. They know the difficulties of addiction and have worked through the problems whereby they can abstain from addictive chemicals and behaviour on a day-by-day basis. This scheme works and can make a difference to you.
We can receive referrals from practitioners or direct from individual clients. Additionally we offer support to your family members and include them in the process of recovery.
