Action on Addiction was formed as a national charity in April 2007 through the merger of three organisations:  Action on Addiction, Clouds and the Chemical Dependency Centre.
 
Our internationally renowned treatment centres – including Clouds House in Wiltshire, and Hope House in London – have brought help, hope and freedom to thousands of people affected by addiction for over 30 years.  We help both those living with addiction, and those living with people who suffer problems of addiction, and offer specialist help and advice to family members.  Our SHARP (Self-Help Addiction Recovery Programme) helps people engage with mutual aid groups such as Alcoholics Anonymous and Narcotics Anonymous.
 
In a unique partnership with the University of Bath we are raising the standard of education and professional development in the addiction field – offering foundation and honours degree programmes and a number of continuing professional development courses.
 
In another ground-breaking partnership with the Institute of Psychiatry, Psychology and Neuroscience at King's College London, we work closely with researchers at the National Addiction Centre, part of the Institute of Psychiatry, funding ground-breaking research into addiction.

Our values

  • Commitment – our commitment to the people we work with is at the heart of all we do and how we do it
