About HALT Services
HALT Services is a privately owned and operated company that specialises in assessment and treatment of those with addiction problems and when ever possible their families.
The ‘HALT’ in HALT Services is an acronym for Holistic Addictive Lifestyle Treatment. The idea for the name came from the same abbreviation often used in 12-step recovery programmes, such as Alcoholics Anonymous. In 12 step programmes H.A.L.T. stands for Hungry, Angry, Lonely and Tired. Each of these four physical or emotional conditions, if not taken care of, leaves individuals vulnerable for relapse.
HALT Services Core Values
- To treat all persons with respect, dignity and empathy
- To provide high quality, relevant, services
- To focus on the whole person and emphasise their strength
Our Logo is a celtic knot or Triquetra ( Latin tri quetrus for three-cornered) chosen to represent the mind, body and spirit and their interconnecteness.
