Who we are
We use our expertise to deliver support and raise awareness around drugs, alcohol and mental health
We work with our partners to support people who have issues with drugs, alcohol and mental health.
This includes people who want to remain abstinent, young people at risk of self harm and military veterans who have substance misuse issues.
Stoke Recovery Service
Stoke Recovery Service is an abstinence-based service providing aftercare support for Stoke Community Drug and Alcohol Service (CDAS). Stoke Recovery Service is dedicated to supporting people who have had drug- and alcohol-related issues to rebuild their life and overcome barriers to recovery.
The service offers a range of support, including:
- A full programme of group support
- One-to-one support
- Addiction therapy
- Creative recovery
- Social community drop-in support
- Peer support
- Volunteering opportunities
- An employability programme called Connecting Choices (part of the Building Better Opportunities programme)
- Mind and Body
- Mind and Body is an innovative programme for young people who self harm, or who are vulnerable to self-harming behaviours.
The Mind and Body programme is mainly run in secondary schools. It involves a series of interactive group sessions that encourage open discussion about mental health and related issues.
These groups are a safe place to talk about topics that are often stigmatised. Talking together helps reduce feelings of isolation and allows young people to explore positive ways of managing their thoughts and behaviours.

Our Right Turn programme provides specialist support for military veterans and their families who have substance misuse issues, helping them to lead fulfilling lives that are not hindered by addiction.
It does this by acknowledging the specific experiences of people in the armed forces community, capitalising on the strengths of military identity and using this to enhance their recovery.
The Right Turn model looks at veterans’ issues in the context of their whole life, rather than focusing only on their drug or alcohol use.
Right Turn is embedded in With You services nationally, through a network of trained Right Turn leads and staff.
Support includes specialist one-to-one treatment, peer recovery groups and social activities to build trust and develop positive support networks.
Right Turn also signposts veterans to other services they may need, such as mental health, bereavement counselling or housing support.
