The Living Room Hertfordshire is an award winning addiction recovery charity, founded in 2000. Our centres in Hertfordshire are in Stevenage, St Albans and Watford, staffed by highly-trained counsellors with lived experience of addiction themselves. We offer free, day-time, group counselling, peer support and workshop therapies.
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.
The Living Room in Watford is now open. The town's elected mayor, Peter Taylor, joined our team, local residents and other Watford charities to cut the ribbon on our new centre.
The Living Room has successfully completed a course that helps charities improve their practices.
