What is Breaking Free Online?

Breaking Free Online is a confidential wellness and recovery support program for alcohol and drugs.


It is a clinically-proven digital solution that addresses dependence on over 70 substances – including opiates and new psychoactive substances – through self-management and Computer-Assisted Therapy delivered by clinicians and practitioners.


It enables Cognitive Behavioural Therapy for alcohol and drug dependence to be delivered in a clinically-robust, consistent and scalable way, and seamlessly integrates other proven therapeutic approaches such as mindfulness, relapse prevention and motivational enhancement.

How does it work?

The programme contains a structured assessment and a wide range of evidence-based psychosocial interventions that comply with National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) guidance on the treatment of drug misuse, alcohol use disorders and co-morbid mental health problems such as anxiety and depression.

Treatment sessions delivered using Breaking Free from Substance Use can be recorded as a structured psychosocial intervention on the National Drug Treatment Monitoring System (NDTMS).

Service users can access Breaking Free from Substance Use 24/7 on any device. It targets over 70 substances, including alcohol, opiates, new psychoactive substances and prescribed medications of abuse. And it provides them with an extensive toolkit of psychoeducation, practical resources and positive coping skills to support their long-term recovery.
