Therapy and Support for Individuals and Families

We, The Living Room Hertfordshire, are an award winning addiction recovery charity, founded by Janis Feely MBE, and led by our Chief Executive, Adrienne Arthurs.

We run two treatment centres – one in Stevenage, and one in St Albans. Each centre provides FREE intensive structured, abstinence-based, day treatment for adults (18+) with substance addictions (alcohol and illicit and non-illicit drugs) and behavioural addictions (e.g. eating disorders, obsessive-compulsive disorder, self-harm, gambling, shopping/spending, relationships, love and sex); FREE crèche childcare (Stevenage based); and FREE therapy and support for family and friends. We also run a variety of outreach projects in areas of need.

  • Each year 60/70% of adults in receipt of treatment for their addictions achieve abstinence-based recovery (approximately 120 individuals).
  • Each year approximately 60 family members and friends regain their quality of life.
  • Over the last 16 years 46 children have been returned to their parents from ‘looked after’ care and many more have been removed from the Child Protection Register.
