Our Network Coaches provide aftercare support across Gloucestershire for service users in recovery from substance misuse. Coaches help people reconnect with their local communities and build recovery capital. One-to-one support and wellbeing checks are combined with group work programmes, including Introduction to Emerging Futures, Foundations of Life and Live and Thrive to encourage behaviour change. Programmes can be accessed face-to-face in community venues and via Zoom.
We also support individuals to apply to detox and/or rehab services. There is an evening Zoom group for concerned others.
In Gloucester, Cheltenham, and Stroud, allotment and gardening projects let people engage in meaningful activity and produce homegrown fruit and vegetables.
We recruit and train volunteer Recovery Coaches to support people in recovery to fulfil their goals and move forward and go on to support our network coaches. The five day training course is fully accredited.

Our two projects in Worcester provide a safe and therapeutic environment for residents to overcome addiction. They combine a behaviour change programme with weekly, individual, goal-orientated key work sessions and weekly group workshops, with a particular emphasis on acceptance and commitment therapy. Their approach is user-centred and peer led.
