Addiction and destructive habits are a growing problem in our society – they can affect mental and physical wellbeing, as well as both the individual and those around them.

We believe that, with someone to journey alongside them, there is hope.  This will build their self-confidence and help people to find a path of recovery and freedom.

We offer a range of support for those in addiction and those affected by someone else’s addiction.
