Southampton Drug and Alcohol Recovery Service (DARS)
Change, grow, live (CGL) delivers the adult Assessment, Review and Monitoring (ARM) element of the Southampton Drug and Alcohol Recovery Service.
What we do
We provide the open access single point of contact element of the service with a welcoming point of entry to treatment, assessment and a consistent care coordination role.
We work with service users on their recovery journeys and encourage community participation, ensuring our services are based on quality, timely interventions that provide what the individual needs and at the time that they need it.
By understanding and responding to individuals requirements we develop an approach that responds to local needs; enabling Southampton residents to access support in a wide range of locations and times to suit varying lifestyles and demands.
We aim to connect with people experiencing difficulties and their families, making entry to treatment and support as easy as possible. The service is for those aged 25 and over enabling service users and their families and carers access as easily as possible.
