Does my loved one have to want help?


So many people say that unless the addict or alcoholic wants help, they are doomed and will be unable to get better.  In fact, some people go further and say that unless they want to stop for themselves, it will not work.

We have some good news for you! These statements are false.  Over the last 20 years, clients have come to rehab at The Providence Projects for a variety of reasons.  Some to save marriages, some to save jobs, some because they wanted to avoid a drink drive charge, some to keep their children happy and the list goes on…..

Very often, the addicted individual does not want help for a variety of reasons.  It is important to remember that denial is a huge part of addiction.  In fact, in many ways, it is not addiction that kills, but denial. The person with the problem may deny the problem because of fear, because of low self-esteem or simply to protect themselves.  With the right help, a professional approach, and 20 years of experience we can help you, the family, get through to the individual.

The success rates of our interventions are very high.  Clients who come to us as a result of an intervention do just as well in treatment as those who came here of their own accord.

"An unassuming house in the heart of Boscombe where miracles happen. From my initial talk with Paul, the admission process with Jon and my induction with Darryl, I was treated with compassion, empathy and understanding. All the staff had been in the same position as me!...If you are looking for a wealth of experience and knowledge around addiction, a safe environment to turn your life around and a solid foundation for your ongoing recovery you will not be disappointed.”
"Today my husband Paul is 1 year clean and sober thanks to The Providence Projects, he has found himself again and is living the life he deserves. " A life beyond his wildest dreams "… He initially signed up for 1 month but soon realised he needed a further 2 months. Paul has been dedicated and followed the advice given to him. He would not be here today if he hadn't been to The Providence Projects. I cannot thank or praise the program and staff enough…”
"A very special place, with wonderful staff. 3 years on life is amazing. Thank you so much for everything you all did for me. Alcohol dependant and a chronic gambler the Provi gave me a platform to turn life around and that it has, meaningful relationships, wonderful friends and most importantly peace of mind. You told me good things would happen and they have - and continue to do so. Highly recommended..."
