Create Wellness: sustaining abstinence and enabling personal development

Create Wellness is a 6 week abstinence-based programme, providing daily groups and weekly counselling sessions Monday to Friday in our Ealing centre. 

The programme can help you to overcome barriers to recovery and develop the skills you need to maintain abstinence.  It will also help you create new support and friendship networks with others who have had similar experiences. 

The programme includes…

  • Relapse prevention strategies and coping mechanisms
  • Anger and stress management
  • Information and education on health and wellbeing

So, what do our clients say about Create Wellness?

"[I learned] That it is my choice to remain abstinent.  To use all the energies that I employed in my alcoholism and flip them over so they can be used for a positive life.  Be aware of triggers.  Be sensible about not putting myself in dangerous places (pubs, parties, people).  Be honest with other and explain firmly that I ‘don’t do that anymore.’  Remember the horror of addiction, know my boundaries, beware of any inherent weaknesses I may have in a given situation, appreciate the help and support of loved ones."


"Inspiring, informative, beneficial, great structure and variety.  Excellent programme.  Thank you.  EACH has enable me to enjoy my recovery.  I felt that the programme was very well balanced.  I have been in a treatment centre and had received too much information and not enough time to process it.  This course did not make that mistake.  I liked the fact that at the beginning of each session we were given the opportunity to process our feelings no matter what the session agenda was!"


"Avtar said, “Give me 6 weeks of your life and I will change your life.”  He was right.  I have never experienced such a powerful shift in myself.  Avtar’s passionate belief in himself and the programme was uplifting, very thoughtful and well constructed programme, constant positive energy..."
