ARP is a charity providing residential and non-residential support to people with all kinds of alcohol problems. ARP is the largest alcohol service in the UK and is experienced in helping people of all backgrounds with a variety of alcohol problems.
ARP offers a safe and drink-free environment in which people can explore their drinking behaviour and its effect on their lives. There is a complex range of reasons why people develop an alcohol problem so ARP offers a wide range of services. The whole ethos of ARP is based on providing a friendly, non-judgemental service, that focuses on users identifying, with ARP's support, the steps they want to take to tackle their difficulties. All ARP services are free. They include the following:
• Structured day care
• Residential programmes
• Post-detox assessment
• Individual and group counselling
• Welfare rights advice
• Resettlement support
• Specialist services for women, black people, young people, crack/alcohol users and women experiencing domestic violence
The first point of contact is usually through one of ARP's direct access centres or through its Accommodation Assessment Team.
