How to Access
The Recovery Centre is open to anyone who genuinely seeks recovery. It is a vibrant and recovery focussed environment where people feel warm and welcome. We firmly believe that as well as addressing our drug and /or alcohol problems recovery means taking an honest look at our thinking, attitudes, behaviours and lifestyles. We run an honest, open programme, whether you are struggling, lapsing or doing great, be honest with yourself, your peers and staff and you will get the support that you need.
