Livingstone House based in Birmingham provides a comprehensive and holistic treatment programme for individuals aged 18 - 64. Our residential Unit comprises a detox, primary, secondary and re-entry phase back into society utilising a 12-step approach to the management and treatment of addictive behaviour. We are abstinence based and offer recovery from active addiction. The aim is to provide residents with a full range of life skills and knowledge to arrest their addiction one day at a time. By the end of the programme through individual/group and one-to-one work residents will have a greater awareness and understanding of the nature of their addiction. Attendance at NA/AA/OA and Co-dependents Anonymous help strengthen their recovery foundation.
Family Support is given throughout the clients treatment stay . There will be a family one to one session with the client and their family along with the family therapist to discuss how addiction has affected the family .To help develop healthy boundaries for the future to help support the client in their recovery journey.
