Treatment is very defined: You are in a difficult spot, you need help, you go to the professionals, they help you. It might mean going to rehab, leaving your current job for a while or even moving home.
Recovery is the rest of life, it’s the bit that happens after treatment. If recovery was a train journey, then treatment would be the taxi ride to the station, recovery is the rest of the journey.
Recovery is about ‘How do I live the rest of my life with this past experience or risk hanging over me?’*
We offer an open safe space for people in recovery from addiction and help them find the right path for themselves.
We help people to connect with others and re-connect with themselves and the world around them. With support, and over time, our aim is to help people make sustainable changes and to create a life of their own choosing.
