How we can help you

We are a free and confidential service for people who want to make changes.

We will personalise your care to your needs. You can come along to workshops, structured groups, or one-to-one sessions.

We can also give harm reduction advice, blood-borne virus testing and access to free naloxone, a drug that can reverse the effects of an opioid overdose.

We are based across Cheshire East.

We offer one-to-one counselling to support you in your recovery. We can support you with activities like guided meditation, emotional management, and creative groups. We can do this face-to-face, online, or over the phone. It's a safe space for you to open up without fear of being judged.

If you'd like to have counselling, please speak to your recovery coordinator.
