A SUCCESSFUL HEALTH and wellbeing programme for people with experience of substance misuse conditions has launched in Wrexham.
The Day Programme helps people continue their journeys of recovery by giving participants access to activities and skills which can help them to live an independent and economically-active life free from alcohol or drugs.
The learning programme covers important life skills and topics including relapse prevention, employability and citizenship, with access to qualifications accredited by Addysg Oedolion Cymru | Adult Learning Wales and Agored Cymru.
Beneficiaries will also learn about Welsh language and culture, healthy living, and have the opportunity to volunteer in the community.
The programme has proven successful for people in Conwy and Denbighshire, with more than 800 people having taken part in the scheme since it was launched there in 2010.
It has now been brought to Wrexham thanks to support from the North Wales Area Planning Board for Substance Misuse.
CAIS learning and development manager Ros Cameron said her team was delighted to be able to offer the Day Programme at Wrexham’s Champions’ House recovery hub on a six-month pilot basis.
“This programme has helped so many people to take positive steps in their lives, and it’s great that those benefits will now be available to people in Wrexham,” she said.
“Participants will be encouraged to be physically active, explore opportunities in the community and work towards accredited qualifications." Ros added.
“The Day Programme is a wonderful opportunity for people in recovery to continue to learn, and to work on developing new skills.”
People taking part will also enjoy access to other CAIS services based to Champions’ House, including a wide range of therapeutic services and activities and the Cyfle Cymru peer mentoring and employability scheme.
