Are you affected by substance misuse?

We support people into recovery. We work with people who feel they may have a problem with alcohol and substance misuse. We help by offering information, advice and practical and emotional support. You can also have access to one-to-one sessions and groups delivered by our Recovery Coaches and supported by Volunteers. We can also offer some help with immediate practical problems such as accommodation, finances or health issues. Please come and speak to us.

Are you a commercial organisation?

If you are a commercial organisation we can offer training & awareness about substance misuse and its effects, help with your policies and procedures & provide you with information on referral to specialist agencies.

Working in Partnership?

Our team coordinate our own services & bring in additional services offered by agencies such as Job Centre Plus, the NHS Nutrition Team, Drug and alcohol statutory services, criminal justice and prison initiatives, family work and services for young people. In this way we offer a ‘one stop shop’ of support and assistance.
