Psychotherapeutic Programme for Patients Misusing Steroids

Our dedicated anabolic steroids treatment programme aims to support people who have been using anabolic steroids without medical advice and are at risk of developing (or have already developed) addiction. It's a 20-hour anabolic steroid psychotherapeutic programme delivered by two psychologists specialised in addictions with more than 10 years of clinical experience. The steroid misuse programme consists of initial comprehensive assessment; one to one sessions focused on understanding the underlying issues of the problem; sessions with significant others focused on strengthening the support network; and therapeutic workshops focused on psychoeducation and relapse prevention.

The anabolic steroid therapeutic programme has a flexible structure, to enable little or no interference with work, study or family life. The frequency of the sessions will be agreed with the patient and the significant others who will support them on their recovery journey.

Initial Comprehensive Assessment

Before treatment can start, an initial assessment with an anabolic steroids consultant will be required to better understand the patient and to inform them of what they can expect from the programme. This will help both the consultant and the patient determine whether our programme is suitable for them.
