Life Controlling Problems

A Cardiff community based recovery centre that has an “all addictions” approach (e.g. gambling, alcohol, sex, drugs, eating disorders), and welcomes anyone who needs support taking that first step towards recovery or wanting to maintain their ongoing recovery. They also welcome and provide advice and support for family members, partners and friends who have been affected by these addictions.
