This month is Recovery Month, and at Recovery Focus, supporting people on their recovery journeys is what we do best. We believe that recovery is possible for everyone, and we don’t give up on people. As a group of charities we provide specialist support to individuals and families living with the effects of mental ill health, drug and alcohol use, gambling and domestic abuse.
We recognise that many of the experiences that mean people might need our support are interconnected. By sharing the knowledge and experience our charities and staff have gained over many years we are ensuring even better services and support.
I feel like a weight has been lifted. I’m still depressed but those down periods only last a day rather than weeks. It was having someone to talk to who was outside of it all. It was a holistic approach and made a difference. A person we supported
In honour of Recovery Month, we are dedicating this week to our ‘Recovery Focus’. All week we will be showcasing who we are and what we do. We know that the best way for us to do that is to hear directly from the people we support.
All week you can expect to hear recovery stories and what recovery means to people we support and staff, as well as hearing how our tailored, person-centred support inspires hope in people’s recovery journeys.
Coming here, although challenging, was the break I needed. As humans we often forget to look after ourselves. We believe that we can take on way more than we can handle but in reality everybody needs a break at some point. A person we supported
Recovery can look different for everyone, and we are here to celebrate all of the people we support this week, and every week, no matter what point they are at in their recovery journey.
