Concerned for a loved one’s drug or alcohol use?

We understand that family members can be deeply impacted by their loved one’s drug or alcohol use.  It can be a stressful and traumatic time.  Everyone impacted by a loved one’s drug or alcohol use needs support, care and an opportunity to heal.

What does it cost?

The bulk of our services are free of charge to people accessing them, however, there is a client contribution for our residential programmes that is used towards the cost of running the programme (this is based on ability to pay).  If you are in receipt of a social welfare payment, you will be provided with a weekly allowance to spend out of this payment and the remainder is used towards your client contribution

What types of addiction do you treat?

We offer support in a safe and supportive space where individuals can tackle the underlying issues that brought them into addiction. We give people the support, the time and most importantly the space to recover. We work with:

  • Alcohol
  • Drugs (including opiates, cocaine, etc.)
  • Prescription Drugs/Medication
  • Gambling
  • Family/Friends Support

(Please note if you do not get through over the phone, we ask that you please leave a voicemail, and a member of our staff will return your call) 

Family Support Services

It is helpful for families and loved ones to have access to support so you too have the support needed to work through what you are experiencing and begin the healing process. The Path to Recovery is enhanced when family members have a deeper understanding of drug and alcohol use and are involved in their loved one’s treatment. Families and loved ones can recover too, with support, and strengthen the Path to Recovery, for your loved one and for yourselves.
