Welcome...

EFT for Addictions is a website dedicated to holistic treatment approaches and self-help tools for addictions, in particular the Emotional Freedom Techniques. It is intended as a resource for organisations working in the health & social care sector, their staff and volunteers, and also as a source of information for people suffering from addiction and their families and carers. The site is still very new and is being continually updated so if you don't find all the information you need, please get in touch through the Contact page with any questions or queries.
