Who We Are?
All the staff that work at Ark House are themselves in recovery from addiction and all work a 12 Step program. All staff are qualified in their own fields and the counselling staff are all qualified counsellors and psychotherapists. This allows us to deliver our 12 Step program in a safe and therapeutic way in the limited timescales that we have to work with individuals.
We provide a safe environment with high levels of support 24/7 for people to be able to address the underlying psychological issues that contribute and underpin their problems with addiction.
The focus at Ark is on the therapy provided and the safety of its structured program. All groups, lectures and assigned course work is mandatory. Residents are expected to take part in the daily chores and routines of the house to ensure the house is kept clean & tidy.
Ark House is fully regulated by the Care Quality Commission (CQC) and complies to all Care Standards.

9 months later in August 1985, Bjorn took his last drink and finally immersed himself into a 12 Steps programme of recovery. His passion was ignited for recovery and he began to travelled all around the UK to become involved in many 12 Step recovery events.
