Therapy and Support for Individuals and Families

The Living Room is an award winning addiction recovery charity, founded by Janis Feely MBE. It runs two centres in Hertfordshire – one in Stevenage and one in St Albans. Each centre provides FREE intensive structured, abstinence-based, day treatment for adults (18+) with substance addictions (alcohol and illicit and non-illicit drugs) and behavioural addictions (e.g. eating disorders, obsessive compulsive disorder, self-harm, gambling, shoplifting, relationships, love and sex), alongside a FREE crèche for the addict’s children and a FREE support group for family and friends.

  • Each year 60 to 70% (approximately 120 individuals) of all addicts engaged in our services achieve abstinence recovery.
     
  • Each year approximately 60 family members and friends regain their quality of life.
     
  • Over the last 15 years 46 children have been returned to their parents from ‘looked after care’ and many more have been removed from the Child Protection Register.
