ASCA has been delivering services to the public for over 20 years we have over 30 counsellors currently working for us.  We can offer our services to most people with a strong desire to take back their lives, regardless of their means. We offer the following services:

Counselling for drug and alcohol misuse and addictive behaviours: People often reach a realisation that no matter what they do to try to shake off a habit, be it weekend binge drinking or daily drug use, it does not work. They find themselves repeating the same behaviours often with catastrophic results. Our best thinking gets us nowhere!

If you have reached this point you KNOW that you probably need outside help in breaking the cycle and keeping it broken. Talking therapy is an established treatment for addictive behaviour, problem drinking and drug use.

At ASCA you will be professionally assessed by one of the managers and then placed with a trained therapist who can help you uncover the underlying issues that lead to the problematic behaviour.

ASCA has been here for over 20 years and has helped 1000s' of people suffering with their cycle of addiction. If you are ready for change then please call us, it may be the start of a life changing process.

 Carers Service:  For every addict using there are at least 3 people affected by their using. Family, friendship and work relationships all suffer as a result of a persons addiction. Sometimes it is impossible to get the person using alcohol or drugs into treatment but life must go on for the people around them.

ASCA offers 1 to 1 counselling and group therapy for those who are caring for or coming to terms with somebody else's drug or alcohol abuse.
