Addiction can feel like an endless cycle, and can affect anyone. The illness doesn’t discriminate against race, gender, income, ethnicity, or age and no one is immune.
Our team at Providence Projects understand the devastating effect that addiction has on the individual and their loved ones. Every year, 500,000 people are estimated to be suffering from addiction, a figure that doesn’t even factor in the loved ones who are so deeply affected too. The actual figures of those struggling are estimated to be much higher. Due to the intensity of the disease, and its progressive nature, addiction recovery often necessitates professional treatment and monitoring, which can be accessed in a number of ways.
Providence Projects are making it our mission to ensure that everyone has access to addiction recovery services, regardless of location.
We offer a sober transportation service to ensure you or a loved one arrive safely at Providence Projects.
Our sober transportation service ensures that you or someone you love:
- Arrives safely for treatment
- Is reassured about the decision to get help
- Can talk openly about addiction struggles prior to treatment
- Can understand the treatment and process and what to expect.
Our sober transportation service is included in the cost of treatment.
Addiction is an illness that requires specialist treatment from trained addiction therapists. We provide online counselling sessions via skype to help facilitate long-term abstinence from addictive behaviours. These sessions provide additional support and protection during the early stages of recovery, and will be provided on an outpatient basis.
- Individual therapy
- Couples therapy
- Family therapy
For some individuals, especially those with busy or hectic work lives, a sober coach can provide immense support in the early stages of recovery.
Providence Projects can arrange for a certified recovery coach to work with you on an outpatient basis, or help you attend meetings in your local area. Our sober coaching service can be accessed anywhere in the UK.
The role of a sober coach is to:
- Hold you accountable
- Guide you and support you through decision making
- Collect you and take you to meetings
- Help you plan your next steps in sobriety
It has been such a journey. I was rather frightened when I first entered, but this programme is extraordinarily well thought out.
Denial is often the first roadblock to treatment. Attempting to motivate individuals to seek help can be challenging and often backfires on loved ones.
Staging an intervention will help someone you care about to:
- Recognise destructive behaviours
- Come to terms with the need for getting help
- Make a decision on seeking treatment
We will work closely with family members to ensure firm boundaries are put in place, and a firm decision is made prior to treatment. Recovery success is often dictated by the individuals willingness for change, and a carefully managed intervention can help accelerate the decision making.
