This service supports people and their families by providing long term support to improve their health and wellbeing and reduce the incidence of long term health conditions associated with drug and alcohol use.
Each person has a case manager who is their primary contact for agreeing their care plan, and co-ordinating joint working with other agencies and organisations such as housing, mental health.
The case management approach is based on the understanding that recovery has two elements clinical recovery and personal recovery.
Those people in the service have a number of protective factors or co-morbid health conditions, which make achieving abstinence from drug and alcohol particularly challenging. So clinical recovery is primarily focused on maintaining stability.
Where individual circumstances change the team prepare and support people to become drug and alcohol free.
The focus of personal recovery is to increase the quality of life of those concerned. There is significant evidence that improvements in wellbeing and health conditions are supported by positive connections with others, including family and the wider community. So the support on personal recovery is focused in this area
