An integrated, holistic approach to addiction recovery
Conveniently located in the Oxford Circus area of Mayfair, Addiction Specialist London provides highly effective, customised addiction recovery services.
Addiction continues to be one of the most significant mental health problems in the United Kingdom. It can occur across all ages and socio-economic levels, from the very poor to the extremely wealthy.
Addiction is not about lack of willpower or personal control. It is a disease that impacts all areas of life, including physical health, mental and emotional wellbeing, and the ability to maintain positive relationships with family and friends. For many adults it can lead to the loss a job or career, or may even result in time spent in prison.
Our highly trained staff specialise in the treatment of all types of addictions. These include alcohol addiction as well as addiction to prescription medicine or illegal drugs. We see patients in the Mayfair, Oxford Street and Bond Street area of central London, as well as providing bespoke counsellor and therapist services for clients unable to visit our offices or make appointments during working hours.
Through out-patient psychotherapy and counselling we work with clients experiencing gambling or sex additions, and well as those struggling with issues of codependency or looking for support preventing relapse. Our staff are also experienced in providing treatment for patients with dual diagnoses, situations which include both an addictive component as well as the symptoms of a mental health disorder.
Our Approach to Recovery
Taking an integrated, holistic approach, we carefully design our therapy plans to uniquely suit each individual client; looking at the whole person and not just addressing an addiction’s symptoms. This provides for long-term, sustainable recovery. In many cases it is a spouse, partner or family that first contacts us for assistance, and in these situations a therapist is able to work with their support to plan an intervention, designed to confront the addict and encourage treatment.
Our counsellor and psychotherapist services help clients to explore the origins of their addiction and address its impact on current behaviour. For many this may be rooted in dysfunctional childhood issues, trauma, PTSD, depression or anxiety. We offer private, highly-experienced support for these issues, going beyond what you would expect to find in traditional recovery programmes.
Our Commitment to Clients
Our focus is on providing confidential, effective and best-practice treatment for people of all ages who are struggling with addiction, and we are committed to using proven methods backed-up by research and science. Our counselling staff are voluntarily accredited by BAAT (British Association of Art Therapists), the HCPC (Health and Care Professionals Council) and the UKCP (United Kingdom Council for Psychotherapy), and we adhere to the ethical practices and standards of those governing bodies.
There is no need to wait to participate in addiction recovery treatment. At any point in time our staff can confidentially discuss your concerns and develop a treatment plan to support your needs. Please look through our website to find out more about our work, or feel free to contact us with any questions or to arrange an initial consultation.
