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 addition 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.
