Caution! Be Careful in Selecting Professional Addiction Treatment Providers

Addictions UK is a Social Enterprise — and Not for Profit.

Our main objective is to offer addictions treatment at home — including a range of relapse prevention, counselling, range of related medical services, etc.

Some things you can do to ensure your safety and quality of service

  • Check those Web-Based Companies out — especially those that advertise heavily over the internet. It is important to check the out in such places as The UK Companies House website. If they claim that they have contracts with BUPA or AXA or other Insurers — ring them up and check their credentials. This will avoid the horror stories that we have seen occur by people who have been ripped off. Remember it is illegal for agencies to sell people drugs to detox if they are not suitably qualified.
  • If an agency offers the support of Counsellors — check out their credentials. Are they registered with the BACP (British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy) as Accredited Members? Counsellors should be qualified and ideally be accredited to offer such services.
  • Compare services and costs with several agencies. It is a good idea to pay with a Credit Card so you will have rights under UK Consumer Protection Legislation. A Bona Fide addictions or mental health organisation will never “hard sell” medical services. Beware of anyone that tries to secure an instant sale.
