Information For Clients

The only criteria to be a client at ANA is that you are over 18 years of age. We offer treatment to all clients on the basis of mutual trust, respect and abstinence.

You will complete an assessment with ANA so that we can tailor your treatment needs.

We have a Buddy programme within ANA, so you can get support from a peer. We recognise coming into treatment can initially be a daunting time.

You will have a Key-worker, they will provide 1:1 sessions and be your main point of contact.

Your Funder is welcome to visit you during your treatment, and have meetings with you and your Key-worker.

Fundamental to treatment is the acceptance of addiction and a willingness to work to overcome it. ANA works with the 12 Steps philosophy and also offers CBT. You will complete written, and group work around this philosophy.

ANA has rules and boundaries that you are asked to adhere to, for your, and the community’s safety. We welcome your feedback on the boundaries as they have been created by clients.

If you choose to progress to Secondary and Third stage treatment, you will become part of the recovery community in Portsmouth. We have found that this is largely made up of ANA graduates, who will come back into ANA to share their experience with the new community.

Upon graduation from treatment, you are welcome to attend our free aftercare sessions.
