Who needs it?
Many people through no fault of their own become addicted to drink, drugs or gambling. Families are broken and untold damage is perpetrated on loved ones. Addiction is no respecter of gender, class, religion or ethnic origin.
If you are worried about yourself or a loved one you’ve come to the right place. If you want to understand more about addiction contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or call us in confidence on 065 6840 944

We in Bushypark believe that addiction affects the entire family and we therefore encourage family and other concerned persons to be part of the recovery process.
We work with family members and concerned persons right through all the stage of the recovery process

We run residential training weekends in the centre on a quarterly basis.
Bushypark is a serene setting that assists in the delivery of the therapeutic programme.
There is a 1km wood walk which runs by the stream at the back of the centre.
There is an Oratory on the grounds to provide a quiet and serene place for residents to take time out to think and to work through the steps of the programme.
