North Wales Recovery Community
Making Recovery Visible in Communities
By supporting individuals to recover from long term substance misuse, offending and homelessness issues, we significantly reduce the demand placed upon the primary care, criminal justice and social housing sectors, greatly reducing the “Social cost” of addiction.
NWRC aim to create a network of recovery communities that support individuals to establish and maintain abstinence from long term substance misuse.
Based on the concepts of mutual aid, individuals are supported to develop the positive support network and social capital necessary to develop meaningful lives, breaking the cycle of substance misuse, offending and homelessness.
In Partnership with:
To provide recovery support to individuals who have experienced substance misuse, homelessness and offending issues.
To support individuals to break the cycle of drugs, crime & prison, therefore reducing re-occurring homelessness and lessening the demand upon wider social housing.
To support individuals to achieve and maintain abstinence. This includes specific therapeutic support targeting substance misuse and also more general support with living skills, managing finances and applying for work - therefore promoting abstinence and reducing relapse.
To promote a wider sense of health, well-being, mutual aid and community involvement in order to develop a strong and vibrant recovery community where people can and will recover from issues with addiction, offending, homelessness and mental health.
