Our vision is a future where people with the illness of addiction are able to live their lives free from an addiction to drugs, alcohol or behaviours, becoming contributing citizens in society.

Our mission is to provide group therapy for adults with the illness of addiction and to support their family members, in Hertfordshire.

The objects of The Living Room Hertfordshire CIO [Charitable Incorporated Organisation] 1175541 are:

(a) to preserve and protect the health of all persons who are in danger of becoming addicted to, or dependent upon, drugs of any description, alcohol, solvents or other addictive substances or behaviours as well as their family members within the County of Hertfordshire and such other places as the trustees shall from time to time decide by the provision of counselling and recovery and support services.

(b) to advance the education of professionals working in the field of addiction treatment by the provision of professional training, support services and information.


Since 2000, we have been providing free, time-unlimited group-based therapy for adults living in Hertfordshire with any type of addiction. In that time, we have supported over 5000 people to overcome their addiction, equipping them with the tools to sustain recovery. Our three physical hub’s locations are Stevenage, St Albans, and Watford, and one online hub, are accessible to anyone in Hertfordshire who needs them.

Our clients reflect the diverse nature of people who live with addiction, including people from different socio-economic backgrounds, ethnicity, gender, and sexuality. Through our effective partnerships with health professionals, community organisations and our community outreach activity, we have developed referral pathways for people to access our programme. Our treatment programme is holistic and designed to address the underlying causes of addiction and issues arising from addiction, such as reduced physical, emotional, and mental health, damaged relationships with partner’s families and friends, criminal activity, unemployment, financial instability and lowered confidence, self-esteem, and resilience.
