Addiction Helper is an online addiction support website.

Addiction Helper’s website was launched in 2011 and was born from a commitment to provide information and support not just to those with addictions but also their family, friends and colleagues.

Visitors to our website will find thousands of pages of information to help understand addiction and alcoholism. There are information pages for people struggling with addictions themselves, as well as for families, friends, employers and anyone else looking for advice. Visitors will be able to access much-needed advice and information. Those who call will receive compassion and understanding and will be offered expert advice about the most appropriate and accessible assessment, intervention and treatment according to their personal needs.

The Addiction Helper website is owned by Recovery Web Solutions LTD. This company owns addiction information websites.  This website aims to supplement information and guidance on addiction treatment and should not replace seeking medical advice from a medical professional.


For those seeking addiction treatment for themselves or a loved one, the helpline is a private and convenient solution. Caring advisors are standing by 24/7 to discuss your treatment options.

Addiction Helper’s calls, emails and online chat enquiries are routed through to UK Addiction Treatment LTD (UKAT) admissions team who are on hand to help with any addiction treatment related enquiries.

N.B All medical advice enquiries should go either to 111 NHS direct or seek advice from a local medical professional or hospital.

Addiction Helper is owned by Recovery Web Solutions Limited and all enquiries are answered by the UK Addiction Treatment Limited (UKAT) admissions line. NHS Services are always initially discussed and only if appropriate, one of UKATs 7 national UK network of private treatment facilities will be recommended.

If a UKAT treatment facility is not appropriate for the individual, we will recommend alternative, limited CQC regulated private treatment facilities with which Addiction Helper and UKAT has agreed processes in place. UKAT will receive a referral fee from the receiving treatment facility should the individual make the decision to embark on treatment there.

Accepting a referral to a non-UKAT treatment facility will not inflate the amount that the individual would pay should they have gone to the referred treatment facility direct, nor will it impact on the standard of care that they receive.
