What We Care About
We are glad to hear family members and frontline workers. We understand that people who are facing difficulties often have answers. Our supporters informed what we do: We support and empower both people affected by substance misuse and the workers who support them with the evidence and compassion with us. So that both groups can help themselves, their peers, communities and clients, we build skills, confidence, pathways and resources.
We Do Things That Work
Our aim is to improve health and happiness decisions in family set up, work place and social gatherings. This is the secret behind our dynamic approach to drug and alcohol abuse. We accept evidence regardless of how different it might be, paying equal attention to both practical evidence and official research data in order to do this. We listen to our peers, supporters and friends and we base our work on their advice.
We're Not Kidding About Our Main Goal
We focus on providing the best quality of work to our clients as we are not kidding about our work and our organisation. We promise to treat families and individuals affected by drugs and alcohol with dignity and respect because we know that stigma and prejudice are barriers to recovery and can cause harm.
