Community Recovery in Liverpool

57-1column.gifOur Community Recovery centre in Liverpool is a therapeutic peaceful haven for addiction recovery based in a beautiful Georgian town house in Liverpool city centre. There, you can learn to live a full and satisfying life without drugs and alcohol with guidance from our professional team.

We offer a structured day treatment programme at our house based in Rodney Street. We have 22 places for men and women.

You are invited to attend the programme for 48 days of treatment over 11 full-time weeks of four and a half days.  Clients can now choose to take the spiritual approach (12 step) or cognitive approach (ITEP) when starting the main programme. 

Our treatment programme

There are many different elements to our structured day treatment programme which all contribute to helping you understand your addiction and supporting you as you begin your journey of recovery.

One to one counselling

This is when you work with one counsellor in a confidential setting to talk through the issues that may have made you vulnerable to addiction.

Group work

This is an opportunity to share your experiences of recovery with other people in a similar situation.

Relapse prevention

You will be guided on the best ways to ensure that you do not relapse.

Workshops and life skills groups

You will be able to attend these training sessions which can be anything from our basic life skills coaching to advice from the Citizens Advice Bureau.

Social activities

We also organise social activities for members of the treatment programme which allow you to strengthen your relationships with each other.

Our centre in Liverpool opened its doors in January 2005.

Our team

The programme is provided by our small team of qualified counsellors and therapists with expertise in addictions counselling and treatment.

Your own support network

You can benefit from sharing recovery skills with a close group of peers with whom you spend each day whilst in treatment. This peer group can form the basis of a network of drug and alcohol free support once you leave the programme.

SHARP encourages the use of self-help groups such as Alcoholics Anonymous and Narcotics Anonymous to support ongoing, long term recovery. We also offer advice and onward referral to those needing continuing professional help.

Referrals and eligibility

Detoxification is not provided. Clients must be at least 24 hours drug and alcohol free, have a desire to remain abstinent in the long term and be 18 years or over.

Some understanding of the 12-step abstinence based approach to recovery is helpful so that you know what to expect and are ready to participate in the programme.

Individuals are usually expected to attend for an assessment visit but telephone assessments or prison visits may be carried out by prior arrangement. Reports from other agencies may be required - for example, discharge summaries, social enquiry or psychiatric reports. Referrals are accepted from all sources including self-referrals. Family programmes and aftercare are included in the cost.
