Our services aim to treat the whole family and our psychosocial interventions offer a holistic approach to improving health and wellbeing. Group programmes allow clients to meet new people, take part in days out and access skills and employment opportunities.
Our staff work both within the community, as well as in prisons – both youth and adult.
We engaged with more than 1,700 offenders at HMP Cookham Wood and HMP YOI Feltham.
All prisoners housed within the Sheppey Cluster (HMPs Elmley, Standford Hill and Swaleside) have psychological therapies available to them, giving help and support for a wide range of mental health problems.
Prisoners are also signposted to community services on release.
It’s not just clients who are important. The 430 staff are vital and with their can-do approach, make the Addaction a professional service for people seeking help.
There were also more than 100 volunteers, eight apprentices, 65 trainees and 24 student work placements.
