Biographical Information

"Anthony Massouras is the founder, owner and chief executive of Mimosa Healthcare, an independent provider of specialist care primarily for the elderly that has 32 (1500 beds) care homes in England. He is also the founder of a chain of residential rehab centres for people suffering from alcohol dependence called the Linwood Group which is the country’s fastest growing specialist provider exclusively treating alcohol dependencies. The three centres within this group are unique in that they treat alcohol dependence and do not mix the treatment of alcoholism with other addiction treatments.

"Anthony is a member of the Apprenticeship Ambassadors Network and Chairman of the Addiction Recovery Foundation, publishers of “Addiction Today” and conveners of the three-day UK Symposium on Addictive Disorders (UKESAD) held in London every May. He is also an Associate Member of the Medical Council on Alcohol and in December 2008 participated as a speaker at the All-Party Parliamentary Group on Alcohol Misuse Inquiry into the future of Alcohol Treatment Services.

"In March 2009, Mimosa Healthcare will open a new clinic specializing in treating people with addiction to Benzodiazepines and other prescription drugs in the Birmingham area. Additionally a pilot “day care” project in partnership with Nottingham City PCT and A.P.A.S. has just been opened in Nottingham to provide abstinence based day care treatment. The aim is to provide a national, outcome based cost effective service for people addicted to alcohol who are seeking recovery from their addiction and a return to normal living. The day care programme will be the subject of a university-run cost and outcome study and the intention is to use this programme as a platform to expand similar services across England. " [1]
