Towards Recovery

We offer an open safe space for people in recovery from addiction and help them find the right path for themselves.

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.

*This anecdote is paraphrased after hearing from Mark Gilman.

Our aim is to benefit the community by:

  • Making recovery from addiction more visible and to reduce stigma and make recovery more socially acceptable
  • To show that addiction is a recoverable condition
  • To demonstrate that people in recovery are responsible citizens and community assets that can positively contribute to the wellbeing of those around them
  • To offer a growing, supportive and active recovery community expressed in real world and online interactions and relationships
  • To help and assist those that access our services / events to either get or maintain a job, a home, and a positive social network

We work with:

  • People in Recovery from addiction, who connect with us online and in person
  • People in active addiction or with a problem relationship with substances that may be seeking to initiate, and/or sustain recovery, and integrate into the community.
  • Family and friends who are supporting others in their recovery journey
  • Addiction professionals or other allied services
