On the recovery journey together…
Our aim is to help as many people as possible to recover from and be free from drug and alcohol dependency, and to reduce the harm that is caused to individuals, families and communities.
We have experienced and professional teams who will work with individuals on their journey to recover from drugs and/or alcohol. You will be allocated a Key Worker who will support you throughout your treatment and help you to develop a Recovery Plan, that is built around you and your circumstances.
As part of our support, we will offer the following.
