“It's like someone switched a light on in my head. There's many things I feel - relief, freedom, joy.” David McGuinness

Intuitive Recovery From dependence to independence

Intuitive Recovery ™ is an accredited educational programme that actively PROMOTES ABSTINENCE as ACHIEVABLE AND SIMPLE TO MAINTAIN. The course, delivered over four 2 ½ hour sessions, teaches the BASIC SCIENCE OF ADDICTION along with an understanding of their ADDICTIVE DESIRE. This provides people with SKILLS, KNOWLEDGE and TOOLS to recognise the consequences of their BEHAVIOUR thus taking full responsibility for their CHOICE whilst also removing fear of change. The final part of the course is the development of a personalised and meaningful plan to never use again.

The course includes a follow-on session after one month and a graduation three months later. After completion the outcomes and gains made by each student are gathered and collated. Each graduating student is presented with their NOCN QUALIFICATION at a celebration event ensuring their achievements are fully recognised but also highly visible to other service-users and partner agencies. Where graduates agree we continue to follow them up and track their achievements for up to two years after graduation.

The course is provided in both COMMUNITY and CUSTODIAL settings as well as through an online package. Courses are usually delivered across four consecutive days but can be facilitated weekly, during evenings, weekends or ONLINE to ensure accessibility.



The Intuitive Recovery course is a practical, solutions based intervention. Focussed entirely on a plan to stop, the course is used by anyone wishing to give a substance up. We therefore see people attending to deal with heroin, crack, cocaine, alcohol, amphetamine, smoking, methadone – the list really does go on.

The course is available online but most of our work is classroom based. Conducted over four, two and a half hour lessons, we teach easy to install skills which are then practised, practised and re-practised.

Whether accessed on the web or in the classroom, our course comes with a nationally recognised qualification from the National Open College Network [NOCN] – further underlining our educational approach to addiction. Our clients get a win-win, a nationally recognised qualification and happy, contented abstinence.
