Recovery Partnership - Gateshead


How we can help

We will support you on your journey.

We will help you focus on your strengths. You will have your own Recovery Coordinator and the two of you will work together to create a plan to help you reach your goals.

You can also take part in structured programmes and access detox and rehab. Throughout your journey with us you can get support from a trained Ambassador.

If you're caring for a loved one with a substance issue, you can receive support from Gateshead Carers.

Your first visit

When you arrive, you will need to go up the stairs to the top floor and press the buzzer to enter the building. You will then enter the main reception area of the hub and will be directed to our main reception desk to book in so we can let the staff member know you have arrived.

Whilst in reception please help yourself to water and browse our leaflets and posters as well as utilising our health check machine which is free to use.

We know this can be daunting, so please feel free to invite someone you trust if this makes you feel more comfortable.

Your personalised assessment

Before your first visit to the service, we will complete an assessment with you over the telephone to gather some further information.

After that, we will invite you to your first appointment at our hub.

During the assessment, one of our team will ask you some questions around your substance use, health, social circumstances and support needs you may have in order to provide you the best possible support.

Our hubs

We understand that accessing treatment can be a daunting experience for some people and due to the cost of living some people don’t have the funds to be able to access support as often as they would like.

We  now provide the service across hubs within the community of Gateshead.

Please speak to your Recovery Coordinator if one of the hubs below is more accessible for you and for more information.

Our main hub is 47 Jackson Street, Gateshead NE8 1EE.
