About ANA

ANA was founded by Libby and Christopher Reid in 1998. Over the years, the organisation has grown to offer forty one beds, primary and secondary treatmentdetoxificationafter care, family and carers groups and training on all aspects of drug and alcohol treatment and service provision.

ANA offers a twelve week abstinence based primary treatment for alcoholism and drug addiction. In addition we offer individually tailored detoxification programmes. Our aim is to help our clients rebuild their lives, to gain in confidence and self-worth and to really believe that they can live a healthy, responsible and productive life, free of addictive substances.

Our Programme is modular, flexible and features increasing levels of choice and opportunities for personal development as clients progress through. We recognise that every client has different needs and will move individually through treatment and into recovery.

ANA facilitates recovery through support and respect, working in collaboration with our clients. Care planning, group work and one to one key worker sessions all feature, together with a life skills programme, women & men’ groups, alternative therapies and optional secondary programme. Our programme combines a number of philosophies including the Twelve Step approach and is non-denominational in nature.

ANA runs Primary treatment from Fleming House in Farlington and Secondary treatment from Lyle House in Southsea. This configuration enables our clients to gradually experience life without drugs/alcohol in an everyday setting that is pro-actively managed to fully protect them at all times. ANA welcomes clients from all backgrounds and walks of life.



All ANA staff are highly trained and qualified professionals or in training at ANA and college.  They are also approachable, caring and supportive of all clients. Combined, ANA Staff have over 200 years of experience in the field of treatment for addiction.
