What's on

About to finish your detox? This course will help you to beat cravings, deal with triggers, build self-esteem and stay abstinent.  



This is for carers and affected others, including family and friends. Nikki, Siobhan, Rachael and Caroline will help you build a healthier relationship with your loved one. 


SMART Recovery meetings focus on addictive behaviour, not the substance itself. You will concentrate on the present and future to set goals. We don't focus on the past, we only look ahead.  



EBI means extended brief interventions. This group will support you by motivating you before you start your recovery. We will help you understand the recovery process and help you to start it. It's in a group setting so you'll be with people in a similar situation to you.

“It hasn’t always been easy and of course I’ve had my doubts. 

Everyone in recovery has their little tricks or things that work for them, and for me it’s knowing that I can always go back to drinking again if I want to. That might sound strange, but it means that I’m making a choice  –  that I have a choice  –  and that I am in control of myself and my future. For me, that’s really  important."

Support for others

It can be tough when your loved one has a problem with drugs or alcohol but you're not alone. We have family and carers groups where you can find out more about addiction, share your feelings and learn how to build a healthier relationship with your loved one.
