Programme details:
Livingstone House based in Birmingham provides a comprehensive and holistic treatment programme for individuals aged 18 - 64. Our residential Unit comprises a detox, primary, secondary and re-entry phase back into society utilising a 12 step approach to the management and treatment of addictive behaviour. We are abstinence based and offer recovery from active addiction. The aim is to provide residents with a full range of life skills and knowledge to arrest their addiction one day at a time.

Attendance at NA/AA/OA and Codependents Anonymous help strengthen their recovery foundation.
