Addictions UK offer a wide range of services designed to help people recover from addiction to drugs, alcohol and harmful behaviours. Services range from medical interventions such as our Home Detox Programme which allow addicts to withdraw from physical addiction safely, under medical supervision and at home, through to essential counselling and after care services that help addicts into long term, sustainable recovery. Many of these services extend to the friends and family members of the addict. We also treat many of the compulsions and mental health conditions such as depression that often accompany addiction.
UK Home Detox Programme
Many people would prefer to be treated at home for any illness and we know that this is particularly true of people dealing with addictions. At Addictions UK we deliver medically supervised UK Home Detox Programmes.
Family and Friends of Addicts
The families and friends of an alcoholic or addict may have tried almost everything to stop their loved one from the unmanageability that can cause chaos in family homes and within relationships everywhere. Addictions know no boundaries and can happen within any family. Employers care too and we have special services for them.
Family, Friends and Carers
Addiction can affect the whole family, not just the addict. It is for that reason that we have a dedicated helpline to support the Families, Friends and Carers of our clients. Sometimes the insanity of the addict or alcoholic spreads to those close to them, who feel pressurised to give in to their demands.
