How we can help

two hands icon

We have a friendly open-access approach. This means you can walk into our service and get support. To make that first visit a little easier, you'll be greeted by a Peer Mentor. They've been through treatment with us, so they can give you first-hand advice. They'll be able to explain more to you about how the service can help you.

Cambridge Recovery service

Cambridge Recovery service is a service user and volunteer-led community-based service. It aims to help you build a sustained, holistic and purposeful lifelong recovery from addiction.

 

The EDGE café

The Edge café is a social enterprise that promotes community-led recovery to support people to turn their lives around and is run by individuals who are on this challenging journey themselves.

Your first visit

We're an open access service. This means that you don't need an appointment, you can just come in. You'll be greeted by one of our Peer Mentors who can chat to you about how the service can help while you wait for your assessment.

Our welcome group

We have a welcome pod where newly assessed people can learn about what to expect and what's on offer at the service.

Advice and support

Alcohol

Whatever your goal is, we will support you to achieve it.

At our hubs, you can pick up a SLAM pack. They are safer chemsex packs that are made up of equipment to help reduce the transmission of blood borne infections like HIV and Hepatitis C. They also have information on keeping yourself safe and other helpful info.
