Our substance misuse services combine an evidence-based recovery model with an ethos of harm reduction. This approach integrates medically assisted recovery with comprehensive psychosocial support that contributes to long-lasting and far-reaching change. Our aim is to help individuals achieve and maintain recovery from substance misuse and become integrated into their communities.
When you enter service we will work with you to develop a Recovery Plan which achieves what you want. We will then support you through 1.1 sessions, group work and recovery work to achieve the plan. This may also include seeing clinical staff to support you for a period of time.
