The Living Room Hertfordshire is an award winning addiction recovery charity, founded in 2000. Our centres in Hertfordshire are in Stevenage and St Albans, staffed by highly-trained counsellors with lived experience of addiction themselves. We offer free, day-time, group counselling, peer support and workshop therapies using the 12-step programme. Fortunately, we have a free crèche in Stevenage.
Addiction is incredibly harmful to both individuals and families. It is often passed down the generations as a result of parents modelling addictive behaviours to their children who may also experience neglect or abuse. By supporting the whole family to recover together we break the generational cycle of addiction.
Our crèche, Happy Days, is extending its service to a third day each week, thanks to funding from Children In Need.
Hertfordshire County Council are launching a new campaign on 23rd April 2018 called ‘It’s Never Too Late to be Active’, which encourages older adults in Hertfordshire to become more active.
