Gateshead Recovery Partnership is a single, integrated drug and alcohol service for all adults living in Gateshead.
Recovery starts the moment we receive a referral. Service users engage in a strength-based assessment, are assigned a Recovery Coordinator and together compose an agreed care plan of actions and support to guide their treatment and recovery journey.
Service users have access to 1:1 support to meet personal needs as well as attending structured development programmes. There is an opportunity to access detox and rehab whilst seeking support from service trained Ambassadors through their recovery journey.
