Mixed Residential Addiction Treatment

Results & Outcomes

ANA is an independent Treatment Centre based in and around Portsmouth in Hampshire.  We are proud to offer progammes to our clients that yield some of the highest successful completion rates in UK for residential treatment for addiction.  Consistently, over the last five years and currently 85-92% of our clients complete the treatment programmes that they come in for.  This is down to retaining staff that are dedicated and care, excellent communications with clients and loved ones and carers and a robust, proven and trusted programme of therapy.  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.  We also truly listen to clients and their loved ones and relatives when designing a treatment programme and helping the client progress it.

ANA was founded by Libby and Christopher Reid in 1998. Over the years, the organisation has grown to offer forty one beds, detoxification, primary and secondary treatment, after care, family and carers groups and training on all aspects of drug and alcohol treatment and service provision. We also offer move on supported housing, post treatment, for our clients for up to three years in our 23 bed Housing Service; ANA WORKS.

ANA offers four, six, eight, ten or twelve abstinence based primary treatment for reliance on drugs and alcohol. 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, men’s and women’s groups, alternative therapies and an optional secondary programme.
