My Recovery - Tameside

two hands icon

There are lots of ways we can support people who use drugs and alcohol, or those who are concerned about someone else's use (including children and young people).

We can give information and advice about a whole range of substances, including drugs, alcohol and over the counter medication. When you are ready to make changes with your drug or alcohol use, we can provide face to face support sessions, groups and workshops, prescribed medication if it's needed and help you to stop using through a 'detox'. We try to understand what it is that you want and then support you in a variety of different ways to achieve your goals. Our workers are welcoming and are here to support you!

Your first visit

A member of staff will be in our welcome area to meet you. they will ask your name and who you are here to see - if you are not sure of the worker's name, they will find out for you. You will be offered a drink and be able to relax in our welcome areas while you wait. If you need some quieter space to meet, please let our staff know and they will take you to a different place to wait.

It can be helpful to bring a friend, a family member or another professional to your appointment. If you are being prescribed any medication by your GP, it can be useful to let us know what this is.
