The Rob Hill Foundation (Registered Charity No. 1181220) is dedicated to Rob Hill (left), brother to Chris Hill, who tragically lost his life May 2014 to an accidental drug overdose. The charity aims to reach out to as many people in the world as possible and share the solution to beating addiction; so that other families do not suffer in the same way.
Chris Hill has worked hard to become an addiction expert and the best-selling author of Get Your Life Back: The Road to Freedom from Addiction. After losing his brother and having battled 20 years of addiction himself to drugs, alcohol and nicotine – Chris discovered the solution to overcoming addiction and then created a programme to teach this method to others.
He does this through his Beat Addiction Programme (available free to download), his book, online course, workshops, seminars and one-to-one support. Chris has helped thousands of people beat addiction and turn their lives around – return to families, start or return to work, keep their homes, take the next positive step in life.
The Rob Hill Foundation helps people beat addiction to both substances and activities; as well as empowering them to deal effectively with anxiety, stress and depression. This extends to dealing with trauma, any fear-based conditions and OCD.
The charity targets people who struggle to find help through the health service, those on benefits, those at risk of homelessness and those who are already homeless.
In addition, Chris Hill’s weekly workshop / help and support group in Sidcup, Kent sees an average 50 people a week attending per workshop, for free (subsidised by the charity). Chris delivers his addiction recovery programme and those attending receive on-going support both from Chris and other members of the group at different stages of recovery. This builds a ‘community’ around the individual, which lessens the sense of isolation and improves confidence to progress.
The charity is expanding the workshops and have just opened one up on the Isle of Wight and another is due to open in Hastings. The charity’s vision is to expand the workshops to other areas of London, other major cities in the UK and eventually for the work to have a world-wide reach.
Why this recovery programme is different to everything else
• It’s a very simple model / solution suitable for all ages and learning abilities.
• A model that doesn’t rely on willpower so no sense of deprivation is felt
• It has no religious aspects – so it has universal appeal
• No reliance on any pharmaceutical supplementation – reduces costs and prevents addiction to other medications / substances.
• It works quickly, change happens within a few weeks usually.
• Learning achieved offers empowerment, self-confidence and self-reliance.
• A ‘life-tool’ that can be reused for other addictions, and to create life-change.
• A module of the learning tackles the learner’s ability to manage anxiety, stress, and chaotic thoughts and overwhelm; so it tackles mental wellbeing as well as addiction.
