Making Positive, Lasting Change

If you are struggling with alcohol and live in West Essex, we can help you

Counselling at ADAS

Counselling allows a space for our clients to explore their feelings, develop effective coping strategies and gain an understanding of the difficulties and challenges they have experienced, which may have led to a reliance on alcohol. The counsellor’s role is to offer support and understanding, and to listen and respond in a non-judgmental way.

Motivational Interviewing

These sessions are short and combine motivational interviewing techniques with practical tasks that help you to reduce your alcohol intake.

Groups at ADAS

Group work supports clients in several ways. It provides a space to meet others, discover they are not alone in their situation and support one another on their journeys. It’s not just about tackling alcohol issues, but developing new life skills and networks too.
