Meeting a range of needs

The Living Room seeks to ensure that the complete needs of those accessing our services are met.

To this end we endeavour to work with a wide range of local services to ensure that those gaining recovery from addiction have all the appropriate support that they need in order to sustain a life free of drugs, alcohol and addictive behaviours.

The Living Room provides the following services, further details of which can be seen via the drop down menu:

All those attending The Living Room are allocated a member of staff: a keyworker, to co-ordinate the counselling, care and support they receive – ensuring that each recovery journey is in line with the needs of the individual.
