Addictions

Addictions include clinical conditions, and compulsive behaviours such as substance misuse, gambling, ‘retail therapy’, and use of pornography. CSAN is particularly keen to hear about Catholic initiatives in these areas – please send an email to policy@csan.org.uk.

The Calix Society – for Catholics recovering from alcoholism; includes guidance on setting up groups in parishes.

Cenacolo UK – residential community for young people overcoming drug use and other addictions.

Integrity Restored – US site for Catholics who regularly view pornography.
