We believe in the power of recovery and know that, with the proper support, people can and do change. Our programmes offer that targeted support for people with substance misuse and other issues, and last year helped more than 8,000 people – including several hundred in Wrexham.
Recovery from addiction is a long and hard road. Our Champions’ House recovery hub provides a crucial space for mutual aid support, and for the development of new employability and social skills. We’re proud that many Champions’ House members, all of whom are in recovery, have been able to move on into work and rewarding volunteering opportunities in recent months.
Our Recovery in Action project now allows these members to make a high-profile contribution to the wider community, by clearing up areas of Wrexham marred by litter and anti-social behaviour.
Our residential detoxification facility, on the Wrexham Maelor Hospital estate, enables people to confront their misuse of alcohol, or illegal drugs in a secure environment.
We also offer effective rehabilitation, counselling, therapeutic, housing, training and employment support to help people move on in their lives.
We actively screen everyone who uses our Homelessness Prevention service and King Street soup kitchen to ensure that we can provide them with the best possible advice and support, and refer them on to other relevant services.
We have been at the forefront of efforts to tackle public safety and anti-social behaviour issues in the centre of Wrexham over the last six months, and will continue this work alongside colleagues at Wrexham County Borough Council, North Wales Police, and with other partners in the Wrexham Pathways group over the weeks and months to come.
