Our welcome group

The welcome groups are delivered by a friendly team of people who are here to introduce you to our service and explain what treatment offers are available. You will receive a welcome pack and be able to ask any questions you may have. Following the session if treatment is someone thing you wish to access you will leave with an appointment for an assessment.
