The Living Room exists to promote and provide access to quality treatment for those with addictions to drugs, alcohol and addicitive behaviours such as eating disorders and self-harming. We also support their affected families, children and friends.
Why they need our service
Addiction is an illness damaging not just to individuals, but harms families and children too. Addiction can lead to communities bearing the costs of antisocial or criminal behaviour and increased health and social welfare costs.
Where we work
The Living Room currently runs addiction recovery cenrtres in the Hertfordshire towns of St Albans and Stevenage. Our services are free to access and run from Monday to Friday.

Results and outcomes
Up to 70 people a year leave our Stevenage centre free of addictions, we anticipate that 36 people a year will also gain abstinent recovery within our new but smaller St Albans centre. Each year many children in ‘looked after care’ are returned to parents who have gained recovery with us. Whilst many people re-enter employment, education or see their families once broken restored.
