Our treatment services help people suffering from a variety of addiction problems including drug and alcohol misuse.

Action on Addiction provides abstinence-based 12-Step residential treatment and structured day treatment. Our treatment practice is research based and our professional team work with you to help you give your recovery the very best chance.

Action on Addiction has been helping people with addiction problems for 30 years. Our policy on accepting referrals can be found here.

Residential treatment

Our residential programmes provide an intensive treatment during which you live in a safe environment with other individuals recovering from addiction problems. During your stay we arm you with the skills you need to keep off drugs or alcohol when you leave.

Internationally renowned Clouds House is based in idyllic Wiltshire countryside. Hope House a specialist treatment centre for women, based in London.

Community Recovery

You do not need to enter a residential programme to access treatment.

For many people, being able to access the help they need in the context of their own community can provide a solid foundation to their recovery.  It allows them to build a link between the experience of being part of a "treatment community", where they are able to recognise the value of peer support, with the practical application of recovery in what some might call the "real world".

With this in mind, you can join our SHARP (Self-Help Addiction Recovery Programme), a structured day treatment programme, which will help you develop the interpersonal skills that will give you the best propspect of engaging with mutal aid groups (such as the anonymous followships of AA and NA etc) and building (or rebuilding) your relationship with the community in which you live.  This of course also applies to your family.

After care

We provide ongoing aftercare for individuals who complete our treatment programmes.

In particular we offer a work training skills programme called Working Recovery.

If you would like further advice about any of our services please contact us on 0300 330 0659.
