 At "Help Addict" we have chosen our rules and expectations for our treatment program(s) with care and consideration for our client's recovery. Whilst we believe in develping personal responsibility, we do need to monitor our clients to assist them and offer the support and care that benefited us through our own personal recovery process.

At the halfway house,  we believe that we can offer a supportive therapeutic community and offer the privilege to have a caring team who is available to keep a supportive eye on them during their stay with us because we know what recovery is all about and work off
