About our programme

How it works

The object of Livingstone House is to provide a family environment where Service Users can access help for their addiction, using a 12 Step Programme, in conjunction with any alternative therapies that support recovery. This will include providing detoxification for addictive substances in a controlled and medically supervised environment via an agreed clinically indicated detoxification protocol all facilitated within the 12 Step Programme (talking therapy). 

The 12 Step Programme

12 step therapy is based upon the 12 step programme originating from Alcoholics Anonymous.

Therapy is via group and a one to one process and will access any alternative therapy which is complementary to the programme.

Service Users will have access to in house/local Narcotics Anonymous/Alcoholics Anonymous meetings and there are family groups which take place at Livingstone House at specifically arranged dates and prior to visiting.

Following treatment, Service Users who have completed the programme benefit from aftercare for up to three months and if they are still abstinent, Livingstone House offer an open door policy.
