Christian drug addiction service to be rolled out nationwide

The KEYS Community Detox says its local teams in places like Brighton, Cheltenham and Newcastle have already seen lives transformed since first launching in September 2014.

A launch event for the charity, which incorporates spiritual, community and medical care, is being held at the House of Lords on Monday evening by Baroness Stedman-Scott.

Welcomes men and women, The KEYS Community Detox helps arrange medication for clients by liaising directly with GPs and other prescribing services.

The organisation says figures show one in four adults are drinking a dangerous amount of alcohol, and addictions are causing 340,000 people to be on benefits and not working.

The statistics also reveal Britain has the biggest drug problem in Europe.

The KEYS Community Detox has also unveiled plans to launch a Christian recovery support programme online, allowing people less able to reach support, access to help via meetings on Skype and consultations.

Interested members of parliament, House of Lord peers, Church leaders, financial supporters and dignitaries, including police superintendents and mayors, from towns where The KEYS Project already operates are expected to attend the launch event on Monday evening.

A Monthly Gift Of $11 Makes A World Of Difference

In a world of fake news there’s never been a greater need for quality Christian journalism. Premier’s mission is to provide the Church with the most up to date and relevant news, told from a Christian perspective. But we can’t do it without you.

Unlike many websites we haven't put up a paywall — we want to keep our journalism free at the point of need and as open as we can. Premier’s news output takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. No one in the USA is sharing news like we are across radio, magazines and online so please help us to continue that today.

For a monthly gift of $11 or more we’d also be able to send you a free copy of the brand new Premier Bible, a wonderful Anglicised version of the NLT packed with exclusive bonus content, reading plan and resources to help you get the most out of scripture.

Your monthly support will make a world of difference. Thank you.
