A bit about Livingstone House:
Livingstone House is a 12 step Christian Drug and Alcohol Rehabilitation Centre.
We aim to provide residential detoxification and treatment programme for men between the ages of 18 years and 64 years with addiction problems within a Christian 12 step family environment, operating within a multi-disciplinary framework to assist Service Users to achieve their goal of detoxification from alcohol, other drugs and behaviours, and commencement of an abstinent lifestyle.
The object of Livingstone House is to provide a family environment where Service Users can access help for their addiction, using a Christian 12 Step Programme, in conjunction with any alternative therapies that support recovery. This will include providing detoxification for addictive substances in a controlled and medically supervised environment via an agreed clinically indicated detoxification protocol all facilitated within the Christian 12 Step Programme (talking therapy). 12 step therapy is based upon the 12 step programme originating from Alcoholics Anonymous.
Therapy is via group and a one to one process and will access any alternative therapy which is complementary to the programme, i.e. healing by prayer, peer evaluation etc.
Service Users will have access to in house/local Narcotics Anonymous/Alcoholics Anonymous meetings and there are family groups which take place at Livingstone House at specifically arranged dates and prior to visiting. Following treatment, Service Users who have completed the programme benefit from aftercare for up to three months and if they are still abstinent, Livingstone House offer an open door policy.
Livingstone House also provides a person centred aftercare approach further enabling individuals to develop themselves personally. Service users are supported back in to training, education, voluntary work placements and full time employment which have promoted community involvement and self-efficacy. This enables individuals to achieve long term abstinence from all substances.
